VMware Cloud Foundation is the nicest of the services in the IT playground. It gets along with everyone! VMware Cloud Foundation includes enhancements to a suite of services in its full stack including vRealize, vSphere, NSX-T, vSAN and increased support for VMware Tanzu. Check out the following facts to see how Cloud Foundation integrates seamlessly with other services to provide the best cloud experience.
Fact #26: VMware Cloud Foundation can help you facilitate a comprehensive hybrid cloud management solution.
vRealize Automation 8.2, together with Cloud Foundation and the VMware Cloud Assembly service, helps organizations adopt a comprehensive hybrid cloud management solution. SDDC Manager joins the party as an integration endpoint when onboarding one or more workloads as a Cloud Foundation account. VMware NSX-T and vSphere enter the picture when it’s time for organizations to provision new resources into vRealize Automation. NSX/vSphere-specific or agnostic resources with constraints can direct the provisioning of new resources into Cloud Foundation accounts.
Fact #27: VMware Cloud Foundation with VMware Tanzu provides simplified cloud management via integrated container orchestration.
VMware Tanzu Standard Edition, a service included in VMware Cloud Foundation, runs and manages Kubernetes across multiple clouds. Whether you have on-premises or use a public cloud, Tanzu and its Kubernetes-based container management ensure consistent operations. Plus, the single architecture makes it easy to deploy applications. Quick and reliable access to applications is key to team productivity and excellent customer and employee experience.
Fact #28: VMware Cloud Foundation supports vSAN HCI Mesh.
Scalability, flexibility and simplicity are the three keys to business agility. vSAN HCI Mesh is an excellent tool to help IT teams achieve all three, and it is now compatible with Cloud Foundation.
vSAN HCI Mesh is software-based and disaggregates computer and storage resources, which allows for flexible provisioning. It also creates a cross-cluster architecture that uses previously stranded resources across vSAN clusters. vSAN already has an efficient and simple native protocol, and HCI Mesh takes advantage of it. HCI Mesh and vSAN lower CAPEX and OPEX together by sharing capacity, scaling efficiently and reducing storage resources.
