BARCELONA, SPAIN - October 18, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ – Today at VMworld® 2016 Europe, VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW) unveiled new releases of its industry-leading compute, storage and cloud management solutions to help IT operations teams more efficiently run, manage and secure their traditional and modern applications on- or off-premises. The new releases of VMware vSphere®, VMware Virtual SAN™ and VMware vRealize® Automation™ all introduce support for containers, enabling developers to become more productive and IT to easily run containerized applications in production.
These new releases advance VMware Cross-Cloud Architecture™, which enables customers to run, manage, connect, and secure their applications across clouds and devices in a common operating environment. As the world’s most complete hybrid cloud architecture, the Cross-Cloud Architecture delivers consistent deployment models, security policies, visibility and governance for all applications, running on- and off-premises, regardless of the underlying cloud, hardware platform or hypervisor. VMware Cross-Cloud Architecture builds on its leading private and hybrid cloud capabilities by offering customers the freedom to innovate in multiple clouds, and is delivered through VMware Cloud Foundation™ as well as a new set of Cross-Cloud Services™. VMware Cloud Foundation delivers the next-generation hyper-converged infrastructure for building hybrid clouds. VMware Cloud Foundation integrates VMware’s highly scalable hyper-converged software (VMware vSphere and VMware Virtual SAN) with the world’s leading network virtualization platform, VMware NSX®, into a unified SDDC platform that is simple to deploy and operate thanks to the built-in lifecycle automation capabilities of VMware SDDC Manager.
“Enterprises count on their hybrid cloud environments to boost business agility and accelerate application deployment on the path to digital transformation,” said Raghu Raghuram, executive vice president and general manager, Software-Defined Data Center Division, VMware. “These new releases will deliver significant new customer benefits including support for containerized applications in production and simplifying operations at scale with these new releases. They represent important building blocks of our Cross-Cloud Architecture to help customers scale out their hybrid clouds.”
VMware vSphere 6.5: Next Gen Infrastructure for Modern Applications
VMware Virtual SAN 6.5: Further Lowering TCO for Hyper-Converged Infrastructures
In Q4 2016, VMware will update the packaging for Virtual SAN Standard Edition to introduce support for basic all-flash configurations enabling customers to further lower TCO for their storage system.
VMware today is announcing a new VMware Ready for vSAN certification program to provide customers with the confidence that file services and data protection partner solutions will seamlessly deploy, run and interoperate with Virtual SAN. The program will accelerate customer time-to-value by helping them to quickly find a qualified solution partner. Dell EMC, NetApp and Nexenta are the initial file services partners. Commvault, Dell EMC, Veeam and Veritas are the initial data protection partners participating in this program. Over time, VMware expects to work with additional partners to further enhance the ecosystem.
In addition, VMware is also announcing vSphere Virtual Volumes™ 2.0, which will feature enhanced enterprise-readiness through capabilities like native support for array replication, as well as support for business-critical applications such as Oracle Database with Real Application Clusters.
VMware vRealize: Enhances Ease of Use with Out-of-the-Box Support for Azure and Containers
VMware vRealize Automation 7.2 support for containers will enable developers and application teams to accelerate application delivery. The latest release will feature Admiral™, a highly scalable and lightweight container management portal to deploy and manage containers to Docker hosts supporting operating systems that Docker supports. Currently VMware is testing Admiral to deploy containers to virtual container hosts on VMware vSphere Integrated Containers in a private beta. Beyond Admiral support, developers will be able to provision container hosts from the vRealize Automation 7.2 service catalog. They will have the choice of modeling containerized applications using unified service blueprints or Docker Compose. Application teams will have the ability to build hybrid deployments consisting of VMs and containers. Cloud administrators will be able to manage container hosts and apply governance to their usage including capacity quotas or approval workflows. vRealize Automation 7.2 is well suited to organizations required to support existing apps while modernizing them via the adoption of microservices and a cloud-native architecture. VMware’s multi-technology approach across private and public clouds with support for containers and OpenStack affords customers the flexibility to manage their talent pools and technology stacks as needed today and over time.
VMware is also introducing vRealize Log Insight 4.0 and vRealize Operations 6.4. The latest release of VMware’s log management and analysis solution will feature enhanced alert management functionality and a redesigned, easy to use interface. VMware vRealize Operations 6.4 will deliver improved alert management and metric grouping for faster troubleshooting and new dashboards customized to specific user personas that span infrastructure, application and cloud teams. Both vRealize Log Insight 4.0 and vRealize Operations 6.4 will also include integrations with the newly announced vSphere 6.5.
