While cloud migration is still a popular topic during customer discussions, I have noticed that more and more customers are considering an exit plan from one cloud (vendor lock-in) to another cloud meaning there is an increase in multi-cloud migration demand. VMware, Oracle, and SAP are the major workloads in on-premises data centers today. Based on my research both VMware and Oracle are very vocal about the importance of having a multi-cloud strategy. Let me share my half-year research on this topic in this short article.
VMware Aria and multi-cloud is clearly the hottest topic on VMware Explore 2022
VMware Aria is the evaluation of vRealize product portfolio and clearly the answer for the multi-cloud challenges. Aria was obviously the hottest topic at the recent VMware Explore event.
When it comes to the Broadcom to Acquire VMware for Approximately $61 Billion in Cash and Stock, it is clear that VMware (soon together with Broadcom) is heavily investing in a multi-cloud direction. Last year I was actively researching differences in VMware landing zones across the public clouds, however, relocating VMs to the cloud is just the beginning, multi-cloud management is an even hotter topic these days. I am glad that I am working with a great manager/team in the perfect role at a stunning company these days.
Most recently, I wanted to take “legacy” VMware vRealize Operations training and certification, but I decided to wait and see what certifications around Aria will be available in 2023+
Oracle and Multi-Cloud: public cloud interconnect, Oracle Database Service for Azure, AWS offerings
I am preparing for a customer event this year to demonstrate the fruits of the Oracle and Microsoft partnership for enterprise customers. I need to admit while preparing my demo I was impressed with the performance/latency and overall easiness of deployment of Oracle Database Service for Azure. It works way better than I expected.
I have deployed similar demos recently, in my next article I will share details of my learnings.
