Azure VMware Solution provides a unified VMware Software-Defined Data Center (private cloud) integrating VMware vSphere (vCenter Server and ESXi), vSAN, and NSX-T virtualization technologies. VMware HCX, a workload mobility platform designed to simplify migrations to the cloud, is also included.
Customers run the Azure VMware Solution private cloud natively on dedicated bare-metal Azure infrastructure and capitalize on existing VMware investments, skills, and tools. This also allows for operational consistency that leverages the scale, performance, and innovation of Azure.
