Want to simplify your path to the hybrid cloud?

Posted on 28/06/2019

Businesses are facing considerable IT challenges as they embark on their digital transformation journey. We hear from our customers that they are faced with business requirements to manage risks, lower TCO, accelerate time to market to meet the ever-increasing demands for faster innovation.

To tackle these challenges and get on the path to success, businesses must shift to a secure, flexible digital foundation that underpins all their transformation projects, including a successful transition to the cloud.

In this article, we’ll cover how modernizing the data center and investing in a digital foundation can help to accelerate your cloud journey, and ultimately meet your business needs. We’ll also share examples of how leading companies are transforming their IT, with the help of VMware.

Modernize your data center

The first step to achieving a digital business, is evolving your operations into a modernized, software-defined data center. Choose one that’s forward-thinking and flexible. One that effectively manages compliance, cost and delivers consistent operations across multiple clouds.

A modernized data center underpinned by a hyperconverged infrastructure platform will enable you to:

  • Accelerate performance of business-critical applications
  • Simplify operations
  • Improve your ability to scale, whilst optimising TCO

Consider the benefits of hybrid cloud

Whether you are planning your cloud ‘on-premises’, or consuming ‘as-a-service’ from a public cloud provider, a hybrid infrastructure ensures the environments are fully compatible and operationally consistent which is a key consideration for a digital foundation.

There are three key initiatives driving increased demand into hybrid cloud environments:

Cloud migration: shifting applications and entire data centers without rewriting or refactoring applications and extending proven models for security and operations.

On-demand scale: supporting seasonal and cyclical spikes in resources, along with disaster recovery strategies that harness cloud scale for business continuity.

Next generation app initiatives: delivering enterprise grade containerized applications or modernizing existing applications with new cloud services, while consistently delivering operations and security.

A hybrid cloud environment allows you to benefit from the advantages of both types of platforms – private and public – and choose which cloud to use based on specific application needs.

A digital foundation that works for you

Discover how companies, across industries are accelerating their journey to a hybrid cloud with VMware solutions.

Faster delivery of resources for scientific research

Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) is the largest science research agency in Europe. As a result of budget restrictions, they re-structured their IT functions in a private cloud. Using VMware Cloud Foundation, CNRS has implemented a robust and comprehensive digital foundation. Deployments across the labs that used to take weeks, now take a few minutes.

Improved agility in data center operations

When global IT services and solutions leader Nol-Tech Systems struggled to prepare for new business challenges, serve clients worldwide, and improve end-user experiences, they implemented a VMware Cloud Foundation. As a result, they became a more agile IT organization that has reduced their deployment cycle from months, to four days.

Minimising infrastructure complexity, maximising automation

OmegaFi assists college fraternities and sororities with financial management. As it was growing rapidly through acquisitions, OmegaFi needed an agile and secure infrastructure to quickly integrate acquired companies. VMware Cloud Foundation provided an integrated cloud infrastructure platform, helping it to become an efficient, cost-effective service provider delivering on mobility, cloud, and security. Its application provisioning now takes minutes, instead of 24 days.
