Today, the cloud adoption journey underpins most new technological disruptions. However it has proven itself during times of uncertainty with its resilience, scalability, flexibility, and speed. Global cloud adoption will continue to expand rapidly. Thus, spending on public cloud services is to reach $396 billion in 2021 and grow 21.7% to reach $482 billion in 2022.
As a result, by 2026, Gartner predicts public cloud adoption spending will exceed 45% of all enterprise IT spending. Meanwhile when it comes to migrating your tech stack to the cloud adoption, it can feel a lot like standing in a Tube station staring at a map. This means that there are plenty of routes, many of them dotted with stops along the way.
But what’s the ideal route for your cloud journey? What’s the best path forward for your organization?
There are a number of factors to consider, including your evolving business priorities and your existing investments. Therefore learning how to modernize and advance the diverse set of applications that run your workloads to keep your business thriving is key.
Azure VMware Solution to Cloud
At first as you look up-to cloud to empower your expanding remote workforce and to gain the agility to meet the demands of the ever-evolving global digital business landscape. You will notice that this solution will help you in finding ease and simplicity. Did you know there’s a path forward among all the various routes for migrating to the cloud, which will enable you to accelerate your cloud migration at your own pace? That path is with the power of Azure VMware Solution.
On a basic level, Azure VMware lets you seamlessly move VMware workloads from your datacenter to Microsoft Azure and to integrate additional Azure services with ease. All while continuing to manage your IT environments with the same VMware tools you already know. With platform symmetry, you have complete control to transform based on how your organization defines its unique cloud journey.
Reduce Cloud Migration Complexity
Cloud migration undoubtedly involves variables such as: staff readiness, current processes, IT support and management, to name a few. But with AVS, you access and manage your VMware environments using familiar VMware tools without needing to retrain staff or even replatform the hypervisors. In fact, your operations remain consistent with direct administrative access to VMware vSphere interfaces.
We’ve seen many organizations, large and small, that have successfully accelerated migration and have minimized downtime. However, using the latest VMware HCX Enterprise functionality for large-scale, live migration from on-premises to Azure is vital. Also, by using VMware vMotion from vCenter, you have the ability to migrate live VMs from on-premises to Azure without any downtime.
AVS provides the best route to migrate what you want and when it’s best suited for your specific business goals.
Modernize Your Infrastructure Securely
Modernization of your VMware infrastructure and applications gives you agility to adapt to future market and technology disruptions. But, of course, you want to achieve all this goodness in a highly secure way. And with a hybrid cloud or a multicloud approach, more than 60% of organizations say security and compliance are “critical.” The first consideration in vendor or service provider selection for hybrid cloud planning.
A cloud migration with AVS provides access to Azure’s built-in security capabilities across all your cloud resources. It’s easy to turn on through every stage of the development lifecycle, from native controls for the DevOps process to scalable security experiences for security operations teams.
Azure security is holistic. This isn’t just about protecting Azure; it’s about protecting your entire organization. It works with what you have and provides you the ability to protect workloads quickly with built-in controls and services. Threat protection with Azure Monitoring and Security Center means you can be confident you’re protected against rapidly evolving threats.
Helping You Save Time and Money
Last but not least, moving to the cloud has clear economic benefits. The AVS route lets you convert upfront capital expenditures into operating expenditures and pay as you consume. Running your VMware environment in Azure allows you to scale up and down to meet demand. This way you don’t have to overprovision resources to be ready for peak usage and incur expenses on idle servers.
As part of the migration to Azure, you’ll have access to the Azure Hybrid Benefit. That is to say, licensing benefit is exclusive to Azure, enabling you to use your on-premises Software Assurance-enabled Windows Server and SQL Server licenses on Azure.
