Cloud Management Platform
Much like virtualization technology, cloud is now an industry standard for many organizations. Cloud is everywhere. Most organizations are using it in one shape or form, whether private, public, or hybrid. And nowadays, it’s not just one cloud, but multiple clouds. Question is, how are you going to address this new challenge of governing and managing all those clouds?
Industry analysts confirm there is a growing number of inquiries on Cloud Management Platforms (CMP) being driven by the adoption of multicloud strategies. Many organizations favor this approach for both the development and delivery of applications that support their digital transformation initiatives.
According to Gartner, CMPs are integrated products that provide for the management of public, private and hybrid cloud environments.

See the recently released “Market Trends: Multicloud Usage Will Drive Cloud Management Platform Growth” Gartner report.
VMware has worked with thousands of customers building and managing private and hybrid clouds. Based on this experience, we’ve discovered that customers generally adopt a CMP to solve specific challenges in their cloud journey. As the virtualization pioneer and recognized market share leader in both cloud systems management and cloud automation for four years in a row, VMware offers solutions that address these use cases.
VMware’s Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) architecture provides the ability to build, operate, and automate infrastructure and application delivery for a mix of both traditional and new applications based on microservices/containers across private, public and hybrid infrastructures in just minutes. VMware’s CMP is based on this underlying architecture and offers the most complete solution, including Day 1 AND Day 2 management capabilities, automating everything in the SDDC and at scale.
And for those organizations, who plan on cloud first for new workloads, or expect to move fully to multiple public clouds, VMware offers another choice. VMware provides a set of management SaaS services to abstract across clouds, in effect delivering a control plane across multiple private and public clouds. This breaks down cloud silos, much like how VMware helped break down infrastructure silos through the abstraction layer of virtualization.
So if you’re looking to offer multicloud choice, helping the business to build and deploy apps faster, while maintaining control and efficiency, VMware may be right for you.
