As we gear up for VMware Partner Exchange, we want to share a recent VMware announcement to help you capitalize on the opportunities offered by virtualization and cloud.

VMware recently introduced VMware vSphere with Operations Management – combining the world’s leading virtualization platform with VMware’s award-winning management capabilities to deliver a managed virtualization solution for the SMB and commercial space. vSphere with Operations Management enables you to increase profitability by helping your customers continue to scale their virtualization environments and get the most out of their virtualization platform.

vSphere with Operations Management is right for your customers that have a highly virtualized environment and are just starting their journey to the cloud. For your customers that are ready to build, operate and manage cloud environments, VMware vCloud Suite 5.1, introduced in August 2012, integrates VMware’s leading virtualization, cloud infrastructure and management portfolio into a single SKU, simplifying the adoption of cloud era technologies.

To further help your customers maximize their investment in vSphere, VMware is also introducing VMware vSphere Data Protection Advanced for mid-size vSphere environments. VMware vSphere Data Protection Advanced offers increased scalability and new backup and recovery capabilities for business critical applications.
