  • Blueprint-based delivery of infrastructure and application services streamlines and simplifies delivery of multi-tier applications and other custom service topologies across private and public cloud environments.
  • Policy-based governance controls which service users are allowed to request, then amount or types of resources they can consume, and as well what actions can be taken across service or workload lifecycle.
  • Intelligent resource management assures that resources are allocated based on their business and service-level requirements and can right size resources to optimize capacity utilization.

Introducing VMware vRealize Suite

VMware vRealize™ Suite is a cloud management platform purpose-built for the hybrid cloud. It enables IT to deliver infrastructure and applications at the speed of business with the control IT requires.

Introducing VMware vRealize Suite

As Software Defined Data Center becomes reality, it is increasingly clear the SDDC will be hybrid. Workloads will include both traditional and cloud-native architectures. And they will be provisioned across a mix of hypervisor platforms and cloud service providers.

At the same time, management roles are consolidating. Day one provisioning and automation are blending with day two operations as more tasks are executed from service lifecycle perspective. A new level of cost transparency and accountability is required to effectively deliver or broker IT services. As a result, a cloud management platform that is purpose built for the hybrid cloud can deliver levels of agility, control and efficiency that are not otherwise possible.

By bringing all management products under the vRealize product family and delivering unified management across the hybrid SDDC, VMware enables our customers to achieve levels of business speed and agility, while maintaining control and efficiency. – See more at: vRealize Suite
