VMware Advances Cross-Cloud Architecture with New Releases of vSphere, Virtual SAN, and vRealize Solutions to Drive IT and Developer Productivity

At VMWorld 2016 Europe, VMWare unveiled new releases of its industry-leading compute, storage, and cloud management solutions to help IT operations teams more efficiently run, manage, and secure their traditional and modern applications on or off premises.

VMware vSphere 6.5 will now feature a simplified customer experience through increased automation and management capabilities, comprehensive built-in security, and support for new application types including containers.

VMware Virtual SAN 6.5 will improve total cost of ownership (TCO) savings up to 50 percent by adding support for containers and physical workloads, unveiling iSCSI support, eliminating networking hardware costs from two-node Remote Office/Branch Office (ROBO) configurations, and adding all-flash hardware support to Virtual SAN Standard Edition.

VMware vRealize Automation 7.2 will introduce container management and new out-of-the-box integration with Microsoft Azure.

VMware vRealize Log Insight 4.0 will feature enhanced alert management functionality and a redesigned, easy to use interface.

VMware vRealize Operations 6.4 will deliver improved alert management and metric grouping for faster troubleshooting and new dashboards customized to specific user personas that span infrastructure, application and cloud teams.

The new releases of vSphere 6.5 and Virtual SAN 6.5 will advance VMware Cloud Foundation, a unified Software-Defined Data Center platform that brings together VMware compute, storage, and network virtualization for private and public clouds. Powered by VMware Cloud Foundation is the new VMware Cloud on AWS, previously announced on October 13th. VMware Cloud on AWS will allow customers to run any application across vSphere-based private, public, and hybrid cloud environments. It will be delivered, sold, and supported by VMware as an on demand, elastically scalable service, and customers will be able to leverage the global footprint and breadth of services from Amazon Web Services.

VMware Cross-Cloud Architecture, that was unveiled at VMworld 2016 US, empowers customers to run, manage, connect, and secure their applications across clouds and devices in a common operating environment.
