What’s new in VMware vSphere 7?
Hybrid cloud is the new model for IT and DevOps, but it comes with unique challenges. VMware vSphere 7 lets you deliver application-focused IT, with an innovative platform for managing VMs and containers in a single infrastructure stack.
Things to consider
Independent research firm, Management Insight Technologies, surveyed global companies on strategies for managing applications and environments and discovered:
- The hybrid cloud is winning
70% of organizations are engaged in public cloud migration.
- Silos are out
Respondents wish to extend data center tools and processes to the public cloud by a 2-to-1 margin.
- Cloud-ready is the new normal
IT wants to add cloud-like capabilities to their on-premises environments to handle modern applications and hybrid operations.
- Kubernetes is in-demand
Seven in 10 organizations want IT operations to provide developer-ready Kubernetes.
The power of vSphere 7
Remove barriers between IT and modern app development, increase business agility and create a native developer experience for all app types.
- Secure and control.
Leverage vSphere Trust Authority for attestable hardware trust and security —and lock down your enterprise with multifactor authentication using Identity Federation.
- Simplify lifecycles.
- Accelerate innovation.
Elastic infrastructure for machine learning applications lets you create shared graphics processing units for higher device use, greater flexibility and substantial cost savings.
- Future-proof HCI.
Reduce cost with VMware vSAN storage for traditional and cloud-native applications
- Optimize performance.
Reimagined vSphere 7 Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) logic works with containers and achieves better consolidation, workload placement and balancing.
- Fast-track modern apps.
vSphere 7 with Kubernetes + VMware Cloud Foundation powers cloud infrastructure for modern applications.
