If your organization runs VMware vSphere-based cloud infrastructure in your on-premises data center, but you have been reluctant to migrate applications to the cloud for fear of losing some VMware vSphere-based cloud capabilities, VMware Cloud on AWS solves this problem by seamlessly integrating your familiar VMware virtualization and cloud management tools with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Many organizations believe that moving their applications to the cloud makes it necessary to introduce new tools, skills, and processes. This can present a new set of challenges because learning to use new tools, applying new skills, and adapting to new processes can be costly and time-consuming.
In this eBook, we dive deeper into how these challenges can hinder hybrid cloud adoption and cover how VMware Cloud on AWS can help your organization overcome these challenges.

Zendesk is a customer service software company that serves over 125,000 organizations around the world. Wanting to create better experiences for its end users and their customers, Zendesk realized that operating on-premises made it difficult for their developers to provision the resources needed to innovate. To simplify the developer experience, Zendesk migrated to AWS and used containers to bolster portability between on-premises and the cloud. Now operating a massive, distributed container-based environment, Zendesk needed an all-in-one monitoring solution that matched their environment's scale and agility.
In an innovation-powered economy, ideas need to travel at the speed of thought. Yet even as our ability to communicate across companies and time zones grows rapidly, people remain frustrated by downtime and unanticipated delays across the increasingly complex grid of cloud-based infrastructure, data networks, storage systems, and servers that power our work.
It’s easy to assume that running IT apps on-premises is not cost competitive with cloud-based services. Evaluator Group tests the validity of that assumption with a TCO model analyzing a hyperconverged solution from HPE and a comparable AWS solution.
Thanks to numerous, headline-making incidents in recent years,
cybercrime has risen toward the top of the concern list for many
organizations—and the customers with whom they do business.
You’ve heard many of the stories. Major health insurers, such as
Anthem, Premera BlueCross and CareFirst had personal information
for millions of their customers stolen. Sony Pictures experienced
a breach that not only embarrassed employees and adversely
impacted the release of the high-profile film, “The Interview,” but
also damaged systems and applications—making it extremely
difficult for the company to conduct business. The list goes on.
Some you maybe haven’t heard, like the one about CodeSpaces, a
provider of version management services to developers. When
attackers were able to gain access to its cloud-based management
consoles, they deleted the company’s entire infrastructure and
backups—ultimately forcing CodeSpaces out of business.
The bad news for organizations like yours is, thanks to the
Virtualization is helping organizations like yours utilize data center hardware infrastructure more effectively, leading to a reduction in costs and improvements in operational efficiencies. In many cases, virtualization initiatives begin internally, with your own hardware and networking infrastructure augmented by tools like VMware® or Linux® KVM and OpenStack® to help manage your virtualized environment. Often referred to as private cloud, these projects are fueling significant expansion into what can be referred to as the public cloud.

Digital transformation initiatives and the need for innovation are causing enterprises to rethink their IT landscapes including business-to-business (B2B) integration. Modern B2B integration is critical for enabling enterprises to achieve goals like increasing revenue, speeding up time to market, and improving efficiencies because these outcomes are dependent on having a successful business network. B2B practitioners have two goals — enable critical business initiatives and control costs — and cloud-based B2B services have been successful in helping enterprises achieve both goals.

Most organizations have a dirty little secret: they are relying on user and password-based authentication to protect sensitive internal applications. With 81% of data breaches involving weak or stolen credentials1, applications that use single-factor authentication are an easy target for attack. Unfortunately, updating internal cloud applications—as well as legacy and custom applications—to support multi-factor authentication can be an IT headache for many organizations.
Okta and Palo Alto Networks have collaborated to make rolling out multi-factor authentication a snap. Join Daniel Lu, Product Marketing Manager at Okta and Kasey Cross, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Palo Alto Networks, to learn:

How to accelerate
For increasing numbers of organizations, the new reality for development, deployment and delivery of applications and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud, but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide variety of requirements.
To accelerate innovation, improve the IT delivery economic model and reduce risk, organizations need to combine data and experience in a cognitive model that yields deeper and more meaningful insights for smarter decisionmaking. Whether the user needs a data set maintained in house for customer analytics or access to a cloud-based data store for assessing marketing program results — or any other business need — a high-performance, highly available, mixed-load database platform is required.
