VMware enhances hybrid cloud experience with new vSphere and vSAN
New offerings comprise building blocks of digital foundation on-premise and public cloud
Virtualisation solutions vendor VMware Inc, has unveiled new releases of its vSphere and vSAN, which power the industry's hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solutions to help enterprises securely run their business-critical and modern applications in the data centre, at the edge, in the public cloud or hybrid cloud environments.
According to the virtualisation solutions vendor, VMware vSphere 6.7 and VMware vSAN 6.7 will both enhance user experience, security, application support and hybrid cloud management features.
"The continued innovation in our award-winning compute and HCI portfolio makes the hybrid cloud a reality for our customers," said Rajiv Ramaswami, chief operating officer, Products and Cloud Services, VMware. "The rapid adoption of vSAN, coupled with longstanding vSphere leadership is a testament to the importance of a digital foundation that extends from on-premises to the public cloud."
VMware said enterprises are faced with increasingly complex technology environments made up of a growing landscape of public cloud services as well as data center and edge resources.
The company said as part of the launch, VMware is also introducing vSAN ReadyCare to improve the support experience for HCI environments. In addition, VMware will help customers maintain performance by avoiding or quickly resolving issues and minimise downtime through a combination of proactive telemetry capabilities from vSAN Support Insight advanced analytics, and a broad investment in VMware support staff.
