VMware new products and strategy evolution to aggressively approach the multi-cloud market

Announcing new and expanded additions to its portfolio on March 19th, VMware accelerated the multi-cloud vision of its strategy.

vcfWith version 3.7, VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF) will be available as a preassembled component of a hybrid cloud infrastructure appliance running on Dell EMC’s VxRail HCI platform – this move could be a game changer in the hybrid market.

Updates to CloudHealth, a multi-cloud management platform, CHinclude now new cost management and reporting features and integration with Wavefront, a cloud analytics and monitoring solution, previously adopted by VMware.
VMware on AWS opened to new regions, expanding so its addressable market for hybrid cloud solutions also thanks to more cloud service partners.

These 3 announcements, VCF on DellEMC, CloudHealth and VMC on AWS, are potentially the right drivers to expand its addressable market for hybrid cloud solutions thanks to additional cloud service partners.

Maybe the most expected announcement: VMware vCloud Director 9.7 release, will allow cloud providers to further differentiate their hybrid cloud offerings and deliver new


services through an enhanced extensibility framework. Let’s think at all the products in a Service Provider’s portfolio, today littered with several GUIs to propose to its clients.
Almost all that products are API-ready, so it should be pretty easy to integrate them in a single control panel.
All these news make VMware’s vision of hybrid cloud and multi-cloud very wide now, requiring a strong addressing policy for new and existing customers.
Security could be another point of concern for enterprises about multi-cloud scenario.
Although competitors continue to invest in their own hybrid and multi-cloud solutions, VMware’s answer to invest in the breadth and deployment reach of its hybrid and multi-cloud capabilities seems the right direction to compete with them in an equal confrontation.
