It should come as no surprise that earlier this week at the Gartner Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Management Summit in the United Kingdom, a prime topic of conversation was data center modernization. As demands for innovation grows, and digital business evolves, making the public cloud a part of your IT infrastructure has become a business imperative. It should also come as no surprise that VMware vCloud® Air™, a leader in this conversation, helps you leverage the benefits of public cloud without sacrificing investments that you’ve already made in your data center.
Since it’s built on the solid foundation of VMware vSphere®, vCloud Air is the ready-to-run public cloud solution that allows you to seamlessly extend your data center to the cloud, yet still leverage the same infrastructure, network, security, management, and skills you already use with your onsite environment. By extending the same platform and operations model you use in your onsite data center to the cloud, you can deploy and run your applications onsite, offsite, or both—without compromise and with less risk.
Attendees in London had the chance to witness demos, talk to experts and understand firsthand how vCloud Air helps companies transform and stay competitive by extending their networks to the cloud.
And next week, the conversation continues here in the “the colonies”. Beginning December 5th and through December 7th, Gartner hosts the US version of the Gartner Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Management Conference at The Venetian in Las Vegas. Once again, VMware will be onhand (see us at Booth #137) with technical sessions, more demos and more experts ready to answer questions about the public cloud journey and how you can be an enabler of transformation and data center modernization within your own organization. Hope to see you there!
