The Current Trend - Unified Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Management Using VMware Aria

The digital world is moving at a fast pace with lots of new and compelling technological innovations. So, adopting changes without disrupting business at this stage is key to every organization’s success. Enterprise innovations also introduce the initial inertia of complexity. It therefore becomes essential in a hybrid multi cloud environment to have an effective multi-cloud management strategy and approach. An approach driven by an end state to achieve an orchestrated single plane of glass coupled with having the capabilities of one touch deployment and operational management of on-prem IT and cloud services such as IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, and cloud native applications. 

There are several reasons and driving factors as to why customers are looking for Unified Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Management:

  • A primary reason why organizations today aren’t achieving comprehensive benefits of multi-cloud computing is complexity. IT Teams simply aren’t effectively able to build and operate apps and infrastructure across hybrid environment because they encounter too much friction and too many silos.  And the complexity is only getting worse than ever with the introduction of distributed customers, geo scattered employees, applications, and clouds.
  • Cost – exploring multi-cloud services and negotiating cost drive financial benefits at scale.
  • To subscribe to unique services from a cloud service provider.
  • For the Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity Planning.
  • Leveraging Hybrid Cloud
  • To ease the management of private and multi-public clouds services from a single user interface.
  • Automating IaaS, PaaS, SaaS etc.
  • Implying governance to organize and control the services subscriptions.
  • Delivering cloud native apps on business demand.

Multi-Cloud Management Complexity

How VMware Aria optimizes your multi-cloud strategy?

As per a recent survey by VMware, 80% of the customers are using multi-cloud solutions, but they are facing many challenges to manage, govern, secure and to optimize the services.

Successfully Application and infrastructure management is a result of 5 fundamental principles:

  • OnDemand scalability and High Availability
  • Cost
  • Application Performance
  • Security and governance
  • Reliability and resilience 

Now, management across all these disciplines is important. But this can’t be done in isolation. Each one area impacts the other. For example, if you are increasing the scale for performance, you need to know the impact of cost. Or, if you are changing the security configuration, you need to know the impact on performance. 

Another aspect of managing multi-cloud is doing the cost, time and integration impact while migrating the applications from one cloud to another.  

A Single Platform eliminates most of the Multi-Cloud Complexity 

The key to achieving an optimized multi-cloud environment that drives successful business outcomes lies in adopting a cloud management solution with a single platform and a common control plane and data and delivery model. This ensures there’s unified understanding of every app and every system and there’s security and intelligence built-in to safeguard data and connect insights. 

With a single platform, IT Teams can trust operations to deliver automated services, performance, cost, and security most efficiently and consistently for maximum competitive advantage across distributed teams and apps as well as private, hybrid, and public clouds.

In practice, a single platform with a common control plane and data model provides visibility, remediation, planning, optimization, automation, security, and governance to effectively manage and operate systems and apps across multi-cloud environments. With consistent operations, teams can be confident their cloud investments are continuously optimized, effectively governed and highly secure.
