Introducing VMware Aria Hub powered by VMware Aria Graph
More and more organizations are delivering net new and modernized applications across public clouds and at the edge. However, with multi-cloud realities taking hold, many struggle to manage overall cloud spend, resource utilization, and application performance / security / compliance across the various clouds. Organizations typically have siloed, disconnected teams that rely on disparate tools for specific management disciplines and specific clouds that make it difficult to manage processes that span multiple clouds. This can lead to overspending, inefficiencies, and increased risk.
In today’s multi-cloud world, organizations require a business strategy, an app strategy, and a cloud strategy with a Cloud Operating Model that binds them together to solve such cross-cloud challenges. A Cloud Operating Model describes the people, process and technology changes required to evolve an organization and effectively manage your cloud services. However, organizations need to have visibility into, as well as the ability to analyze, the growing numbers of resources, objects, and associated dependencies in their multi-cloud estate to implement a Cloud Operating Model properly and effectively.
We unveiled VMware Aria Hub powered by VMware Aria Graph at VMware Explore US earlier this summer to solve exactly this.
VMware Aria Hub is a multi-cloud management platform that unifies the management disciplines of cost, performance, configuration, and delivery automation with a common control plane and data model for any cloud, any platform, any tool, and every persona. It helps you align multiple teams and solutions on a common understanding of resources, relationships, historical changes, applications, and accounts, fundamental to managing a multi-cloud environment.
Under the hood, the platform is powered by VMware Aria Graph, a cloud-scale graph-based data store technology that provides a near real-time map of applications and clouds with management insights from your existing VMware Aria solutions (VMware Aria Cost powered by CloudHealth, VMware Aria Operations, and VMware Aria Automation) as well as federated third-party management tools.
Together, VMware Aria Hub powered by VMware Aria Graph and the VMware Aria portfolio makes it possible to approach complex, multi-cloud use cases, such as multi-cloud governance, application migration, and troubleshooting. VMware Aria Hub serves as a foundation for new end-to-end solutions, including VMware Aria Guardrails, VMware Aria Migration, and VMware Aria Business Insights that support such strategic cross-cloud use cases in this new multi-cloud world. VMware Aria Hub powered by VMware Aria Graph provides the technological foundation for an effective Cloud Operating Model.
Announcing Free Tier of VMware Aria Hub powered by VMware Aria Graph
Today at VMware Explore Europe in Barcelona, we’re excited to announce a new free tier of VMware Aria Hub powered by VMware Aria Graph! The new free tier enables you to inventory, map, filter, and search resources from up to two of your native public cloud accounts, currently from either AWS or Microsoft Azure. It also helps you understand the relationships of your resources to other resources, policies, and other key components in your public cloud and Kubernetes environments. You also get access to visibility into CIS benchmark violation data coming from VMware Aria Automation for Secure Clouds and list price costing for resources coming from VMware Aria Cost powered by CloudHealth. On top of that, you can manually curate apps to better understand the dependencies and relationships of your business apps. Learn more about the technical details of the free tier here.
Sign up now to join the wait list to get access to the free tier. We’ll send you an early access invitation at the end of November.
Announcing VMware Aria Migration Beta
We’re also excited to announce the Beta availability of VMware Aria Migration, following the Tech Preview announcement at VMware Explore US in San Francisco. Do you need to decide where to deploy new applications and workloads, as well as whether to migrate existing applications and workloads to a more optimal cloud? VMware Aria Migration can quickly provide migration assessments, including actual inventory-based assessment from your own vCenter(s), as well as a cost-benefit analysis of VMware Cloud on AWS in comparison with on-prem, and more.
Fill out this short survey to receive access to the new VMware Aria Migration beta and test it out. We’d love to hear more about where you are in your workload migration journey and make the solution more useful and easier to use.
