Read IDC’s Flash Survey and learn about how the digital transformation for industries, governments and economies is based on the three key enterprise IT mega trends: the modernization of IT legacy; harnessing cloud, mobile, big data analytics and social business; and innovation acceleration.
This guide will help you leverage opportunities in the public cloud in ways that make sense no matter where you are on the cloud adoption spectrum. If you are running a VMware vSphere®-powered Data Center, it may be time to modernize your infrastructure with VMware vCloud® Air™, the ready-to-run public cloud for protecting, extending, and replacing on-premises vSphere workloads. Read the eBook for tips and tricks, lessons learned from other organizations, and links to additional resources to help you get started.
This white paper will give you perspective on how cloud computing is addressing today’s most pressing IT and business challenges. Public cloud with hybrid cloud capabilities has become the preferred cloud model and it’s important to know the types of hybrid cloud capabilities enterprises should evaluate when considering cloud computing. Through three real-world case studies you’ll also see how VMware vCloud Air specifically delivers on the promise of public cloud with hybrid cloud capabilities.
Cloud computing adoption continues to expand as the overall benefits of cloud (cost efficiency, self-service, and IT standardization) are becoming more broadly recognized. While private cloud is the primary type of cloud infrastructure that is in use today, organizations are finding that cloud can no longer be a standalone IT sourcing and consumption model. Enterprises demand greater flexibility and scalability, leading them to invest in hybrid cloud models, which supply them with a seamless application, data, and management environment across all of their IT resources. IDC expects that the percentage of users who adopt private or public cloud models will diminish over the next several years, as enterprises increasingly choose to implement a hybrid cloud model.
Straight from our experts at VMware®, follow these technical tips to learn what you need to know to get started with VMware vCloud® Air™. From choosing the right service offering to migrating your workloads and administering resources, reference these tips as you extend your data center to the cloud.
Learn why VMware vSphere® users across multiple industries turned to VMware vCloud® Air™, the ready-to-run public cloud built on vSphere, to modernize their data centers.
While each organization’s story may be unique, VMware vSphere customers can quickly realize the cost-effectiveness and operational efficiencies that the public cloud delivers—without compromising the investments they’ve made in their on-premises data centers.
Higher education is in the midst of fundamental changes that are reshaping the future of both the mission and the business. As technology helps campuses better reach beyond their traditional physical borders, decision-makers expect IT to offer the solutions and leadership needed to deliver better services to students, staff, and researchers while simplifying IT costs and responsibilities. This solution brief addresses how vCloud Air built on the popular vSphere virtualization platform, is helping higher education IT respond to today’s performance, manageability, and security challenges.
As organizations begin to adopt public cloud, one element of consideration is what to do with existing applications. These applications were not built with cloud in mind, though most are virtualized today. These organizations must now determine a modernization strategy for these applications and incorporate how public cloud might fit into the picture. This paper examines the use of public cloud for data center extension and replacement, particularly in light of existing traditional enterprise applications. It also looks at the role of VMware's vCloud Air public cloud service in meeting the needs of these applications.

All companies, small and large, grapple with infrastructure growth and IT modernization. For many companies, datacenter infrastructure has become an essential part of a hybrid cloud environment that allows users to consume internal and external resources seamlessly. This, in turn, is helping modernize today's datacenters and drive new levels of agility, productivity, and scale.
A common attribute of modern datacenter infrastructure is solutions that provide all compute and data services as a single system that can be managed holistically at a rack scale. IDC refers to such solutions as converged infrastructure.
Technology is quickly moving to the forefront of business priorities as organizations undertake digital and IT transformation projects that enable strategic differentiation in a world where users leverage applications and data in new ways. Organizations in all industries must better align with changing customer preferences to avoid being disrupted by a new crop of nimble competitors. Technology will increasingly determine how businesses define and distinguish themselves in the market. IDC has noted that most organizations were not born digital but instead have legacy business processes, applications, and infrastructure that require modernization and automation. As a result, businesses must embark on an IT transformation initiative to modernize and automate their legacy infrastructure to prime themselves to achieve their digital business goals and initiatives
