Exploring Your Options After the VMware Landscape Shift



Are you sensing a Shift in VMware toward the Cloud?

The Cloud landscape is constantly evolving, and recent industry developments (including the Broadcom acquisition of VMware) have prompted many businesses to re-evaluate their Cloud strategies. Are you wondering if it’s time to explore new options beyond VMware? This blog post is here to guide you through that process and enable you to make informed decisions.


Exploring New Cloud Options: Considerations for Your VMware Journey

Whether you’ve been happily nestled in a VMware environment for years, or you’re starting to feel a bit of a squeeze, here are some key factors to consider:

  • Future-Proofing Your Strategy: The Cloud landscape is constantly innovating. Is your current platform keeping pace with the latest advancements in scalability, security, and functionality? To ensure long-term scalability and access to the latest features, exploring new options beyond VMware is a sound strategy. This can encompass both on-premises consolidation and Cloud migration approaches.

  • On-Premises Consolidation Strategies: In some cases, consolidating your existing on-premises VMware environment might be a suitable solution. Here are two potential scenarios:

  • Geographic Consolidation: If you have VMs dispersed across multiple locations, consolidating them into a single on-premises data center can improve manageability and potentially streamline operations.

  • VMware Management Consolidation: If you manage VMs across several local warehouses, consolidating management with a single large provider within your on-premises infrastructure can simplify administration and potentially reduce costs.

  • Cloud Migration: Migrating your on-premises VMware environment to a public cloud platform like AWS, Azure, or GCP offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Agility and Scalability: Public cloud platforms provide on-demand resources, allowing you to easily scale your infrastructure up or down based on your needs.

  • Reduced Cost: You only pay for the resources you use, potentially leading to cost savings compared to managing on-premises infrastructure.

  • Access to Advanced Services: Public clouds offer a wide range of services like machine learning, analytics, and databases that can enhance your applications.




The Right Choice for You: The best approach for your specific situation depends on your budget, security requirements, desired level of control, and future growth plans. Corent can help you assess your options and develop a customized migration or consolidation strategy that aligns with your business goals.

Migrating Beyond VMware: A World of Cloud Options

The good news is you have a wealth of options beyond VMware. Here’s a breakdown of some popular Cloud migration paths:

  • Private Cloud Migration: Maintain control and security by migrating to your own on-premises private Cloud infrastructure. This is a good option for businesses with sensitive data or strict compliance requirements. One option for private cloud migration is Microsoft Azure Stack, which allows you to extend Azure services to your on-premises environment, offering a hybrid cloud approach.

  • Public Cloud Migration: Embrace the agility and scalability of public Cloud providers like AWS, Azure, or GCP. This might be ideal if you crave cost-efficiency and on-demand resources.

  • Hybrid Cloud Migration: Why choose just one? A hybrid Cloud strategy leverages both public and private Cloud environments, offering a flexible and customizable solution.
