VMware’s announces new Automation Cloud Services
At this VMworld 2018 which is taking place this week in Las Vegas, VMware upped their game in the IT Automation and DevOps space by announcing three new Cloud Automation Services.
When looking at a cloud management platform, a few questions always pop up:
- Which public clouds can I connect to?
- Can I deploy one service to multiple clouds?
- Can I use the native cloud services?
- How long does it take to install and configure?
- Is this offered as Software-as-a-Service?
- Are changes in a blueprint propagated to the deployed instances?
- Do you support Infrastructure-as-Code?
Very important to mention is that Cloud Automation Services is not here to replace vRealize on-premises products. It is merely here to offer VMware customers a choice. Do I want to install a cloud management solution on-premises or do I want to use it in a SaaS form-factor. Eventually the Cloud Automation Services will become the next vRealize Automation and users will really have a choice, buy or build!
In the following series we will give you an insight into these new Cloud Automation Services, what they do and how to use them.
In the coming weeks we will publish several articles on how to use these new Cloud Automation Services. So please come back soon.
