Cloud Migration

Migrate to the cloud to unlock app innovation – Lessons from VMworld 2021

Migrating your workloads to the cloud has never been easier. Even your business-critical apps – those that can’t risk any downtime or changes to security posture – can be migrated seamlessly using VMware infrastructure, with no changes to the app. You may have thought this was impossible and sounds too good to be true. Well, that’s what we do at VMware, make the seemingly impossible, possible.

Learn how Stirling National Bank executed a seamless cloud migration, invisible to their end-customers

VMware Cloud is an infrastructure platform that allows you to run the same infrastructure in the data center and public cloud, making migration seamless. Plus, managing new services is simplified with a single control plane for every cloud, data center, and edge environment you have.

Migrating workloads to the cloud is just the start. Reducing CapEx and moving out of hardware management is great, but the long-term value of cloud migration comes from the new opportunities for app innovation you unlock in the cloud – from native services to cloud-native app development with Kubernetes, and any future advancement to come.

At VMworld 2021, we dove into the best practices and tools you can adopt to maximize the value and success of your cloud migration. Use the curated list of sessions below to get started.
