VMware, Inc., addressed the challenges of multi-cloud environments head-on, by announcing new and enhanced VMware Cloud Services at VMworld® 2018, that will enable cloud operations, DevOps, and security and compliance teams to better manage cloud costs, operations, security, and compliance across clouds. The advancements to VMware’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) based cloud operations platform included new cloud automation services, VMware Cloud Assembly, VMware Service Broker, and VMware Code Stream; a new cloud configuration security and compliance service, VMware Secure State; and significant enhancements to Wavefront by VMware.
Across industries, businesses are on the path to multi-cloud adoption with Forrester reporting that 89 percent of enterprises use at least two clouds and 74 percent use at least three or more public clouds(1). With the explosive growth in public cloud, organizations are struggling with disparate tools and processes to gain visibility, enforce compliance, and ensure application performance. VMware Cloud Services build on the company’s recognized leadership in cloud management to deliver a unified platform for helping cloud engineering and operations teams get visibility into their cloud resources, manage costs, drive efficiency with resource management, and gain real-time configuration compliance with automation and insights.
“VMware is building on on the proven leadership of our VMware vRealize cloud management platform to deliver an integrated set of SaaS services that address cloud operations challenges in a unified way that works consistently across native public clouds and the private cloud,” said Raghu Raghuram, chief operating officer, Products and Cloud Services, VMware. “Through our comprehensive cloud operations platform, customers will be better equipped to create value, improve business performance and reduce risk by more effectively managing, securing and operating workloads in the cloud.”
