How the Cloud Is Transforming IT
In a business world where first movers gain the advantage and IT is central to every decision, IT responsiveness and agility provide a competitive edge. Yet many IT organizations aren’t quick enough on the uptake because their infrastructures are exorbitant to manage and too complex to easily adapt.
Cloud computing provides a vastly more efficient, flexible, and cost-effective way for IT to meet escalating business needs: IT as a Service. VMware offers you an evolutionary and practical path to this new model, with solutions that harness the power of the cloud while ensuring security and preserving the value of your existing technology investments.
VMware’s Approach: Enabling the Journey to Your Cloud
Virtualization is the essential catalyst for cloud computing. As the virtualization leader, VMware builds on this solid foundation with platforms and solutions to power your cloud infrastructure, build and run robust cloud applications, and supply end-user computing as a cloud-based service.
Our approach is comprehensive, but unlike other cloud offerings, it’s not one-cloud-fits-all. To deliver competitive advantage, cloud computing must be flexibly tailored and aligned to your individual needs. For your enterprise, that could mean a cloud that’s internal and private, one that leverages external services, or a hybrid cloud that combines both.
Whichever cloud option suits you best, only VMware offers a complete solution stack for building and managing it, plus a broad partner ecosystem to ensure that everything in it works seamlessly and securely. The result is not just any cloud, but your cloud—where accelerated IT delivers accelerated results for your business.
VMware’s tailored approach delivers flexibility and security while protecting your existing investments, by enabling:
• Efficiency Through Utilization and Automation
Resource pooling and a self-managed, dynamically optimized environment dramatically increase IT performance—leveraging existing resources to avoid unnecessary infrastructure investment and technology lock-in. The result is lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
• Agility with Control
Cloud computing aims to empower end-users while ensuring security and preserving IT oversight and authority. The VMware solution interweaves all three, greatly simplifying IT services provisioning and deployment while maintaining IT control, protective safeguards, and regulatory compliance. The IT organization can thus respond more quickly and securely to evolving business needs.
• Freedom of Choice
IT retains the ability to support traditional systems and gains the flexibility to deploy them internally or externally, without being restricted to any single technology or vendor. Developers can build applications that are portable among hybrid, private, and public clouds within a common management and security framework.
