VMware speeds up Multi-Cloud Management with new vRealize Suite 2017

Latest suite optimizes application and infrastructure performance while enabling Developer Clouds with increased support for Containers and Microsoft Azure

At VMworld 2017 Europe, VMware announced advancements to its cloud management platform to help customers deploy, operate and manage IT infrastructure and application services across a multi-cloud landscape. The introduction of VMware vRealize Suite 2017 will integrate the latest releases of vRealize Operations, vRealize Automation, vRealize Business for Cloud, and vRealize Log Insight and feature new lifecycle management capabilities to support customers’ data center modernization and cloud integration efforts.

“As IT organizations strive to become more agile and innovative, VMware is helping them achieve these outcomes by modernizing their data centers and integrating public clouds with their private clouds,” said Ajay Singh, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud Management Business Unit, VMware. “VMware vRealize Suite 2017 introduces new lifecycle management capabilities to enable IT to accelerate time to value for their cloud management platform, and deliver and manage application and infrastructure services faster and more efficiently than ever before.”

Digital transformation is accelerating as more companies across all industries take advantage of technology trends such as big data, cloud, social, IoT and mobility. In a 2017 VMware customer survey, 67 percent of enterprise customers said they foresee an ideal end state in which they rely on multiple clouds. Managing resources and applications across multiple clouds, however, raises new challenges including workload cloud portability and the need to monitor performance, manage capacity and achieve cost transparency across clouds.

VMware vRealize Suite 2017 will deliver a comprehensive cloud management platform that can manage hybrid environments across private and public clouds. It will speed up the delivery of IT services through automation and pre-defined policies, providing a high level of agility and flexibility for developers and lines of business while maintaining governance and control. The suite will also support heterogeneous environments that are a mix of both traditional and cloud-native applications across VMs and containers, running in a software-defined data center (SDDC) environment or multiple clouds.

“Enterprises have embraced the cloud to deliver new differentiated, cloud-enabled experiences to customers and arm developers with cloud-native tools to deliver software faster. To meet the needs of developers, lines of business, and infrastructure and operations teams, enterprises have adopted comprehensive cloud management platforms such as the VMware vRealize Suite. This release of the suite addresses the key customer request of making vRealize easier to deploy, integrate, manage and upgrade on an ongoing basis.” – Torsten Volk, Managing Research Director, Hybrid Cloud, Software Defined Infrastructure and Machine Learning at Enterprise Management Associates (EMA).
