Technology leaders in state and local governments are moving to deploy solutions across physical assets and virtual infrastructures that will allow them to better manage IT enterprise workloads. A number of factors are driving demand for greater efficiency, including a shortage of IT workers, fragmented and outdated legacy systems that drain IT resources, and multiple disconnected clouds. For some organizations, the solution is a cloud platform that streamlines migration to the cloud, reduces workloads associated with operating in a multi-cloud environment and lessens the labor requirements of security management. A cloud foundation allows for integrated cloud infrastructure – compute, storage, networking and security – and cloud management services to run enterprise applications in private and public environments.

  • The Business Value of Hybrid Cloud with VMware

    IT organizations must attain the ability to constantly balance three workload priorities: low latency, rapid resource delivery, and data control. For many workloads, this means keeping applications in existing datacenters, near existing users or devices whenever possible, but only if the IT organization ensures that on-premise infrastructure is modernized so it can grow and evolve quickly with changing requirements. In other cases, workloads need to move to new shared public cloud platforms that enable organizations to reach into new geographies and locations. IDC spoke with organizations that have deployed enterprise applications in a VMware Hybrid Cloud environment to understand the impact on their IT and business operations. Download Now
