A number of recent surveys indicate that cloud costs are becoming a major
concern for businesses, many of whom have found cloud computing to be
more expensive than they thought. The surveys align with Gartner’s 2017
prediction that “through 2020, 80% of businesses will overshoot their cloud
infrastructure as a service (IaaS) budgets due to a lack of cost optimization
This could be due to a lack of understanding about cloud pricing, or a lack
of knowledge about the full range of measures that can be taken to reduce
cloud costs. The one area in which businesses are struggling to control
costs more than any other is the hybrid cloud. Analysts attribute hybrid
cloud overspend to the complexity of operating a private or public cloud in
conjunction with an on-premises infrastructure.
Businesses using VMware Cloud (VMC) on AWS don’t experience as much
operational complexity in their hybrid environments, but they can still be
guilty of overspending.

This guide will help you leverage opportunities in the public cloud in ways that make sense no matter where you are on the cloud adoption spectrum. If you are running a VMware vSphere®-powered Data Center, it may be time to modernize your infrastructure with VMware vCloud® Air™, the ready-to-run public cloud for protecting, extending, and replacing on-premises vSphere workloads. Read the eBook for tips and tricks, lessons learned from other organizations, and links to additional resources to help you get started.
This white paper will give you perspective on how cloud computing is addressing today’s most pressing IT and business challenges. Public cloud with hybrid cloud capabilities has become the preferred cloud model and it’s important to know the types of hybrid cloud capabilities enterprises should evaluate when considering cloud computing. Through three real-world case studies you’ll also see how VMware vCloud Air specifically delivers on the promise of public cloud with hybrid cloud capabilities.
Cloud computing adoption continues to expand as the overall benefits of cloud (cost efficiency, self-service, and IT standardization) are becoming more broadly recognized. While private cloud is the primary type of cloud infrastructure that is in use today, organizations are finding that cloud can no longer be a standalone IT sourcing and consumption model. Enterprises demand greater flexibility and scalability, leading them to invest in hybrid cloud models, which supply them with a seamless application, data, and management environment across all of their IT resources. IDC expects that the percentage of users who adopt private or public cloud models will diminish over the next several years, as enterprises increasingly choose to implement a hybrid cloud model.
Straight from our experts at VMware®, follow these technical tips to learn what you need to know to get started with VMware vCloud® Air™. From choosing the right service offering to migrating your workloads and administering resources, reference these tips as you extend your data center to the cloud.
Learn why VMware vSphere® users across multiple industries turned to VMware vCloud® Air™, the ready-to-run public cloud built on vSphere, to modernize their data centers.
While each organization’s story may be unique, VMware vSphere customers can quickly realize the cost-effectiveness and operational efficiencies that the public cloud delivers—without compromising the investments they’ve made in their on-premises data centers.
Higher education is in the midst of fundamental changes that are reshaping the future of both the mission and the business. As technology helps campuses better reach beyond their traditional physical borders, decision-makers expect IT to offer the solutions and leadership needed to deliver better services to students, staff, and researchers while simplifying IT costs and responsibilities. This solution brief addresses how vCloud Air built on the popular vSphere virtualization platform, is helping higher education IT respond to today’s performance, manageability, and security challenges.
As organizations begin to adopt public cloud, one element of consideration is what to do with existing applications. These applications were not built with cloud in mind, though most are virtualized today. These organizations must now determine a modernization strategy for these applications and incorporate how public cloud might fit into the picture. This paper examines the use of public cloud for data center extension and replacement, particularly in light of existing traditional enterprise applications. It also looks at the role of VMware's vCloud Air public cloud service in meeting the needs of these applications.
VMware vCloud® Government Service provided by Carpathia® is an enterprise-class hybrid cloud solution built on vSphere®, which empowers government customers to leverage existing investments in applications and infrastructure.

Many businesses are beginning to understand that hybrid cloud can provide the best of both worlds: on-demand access to much-needed IT resources, and the flexibility to move workloads onsite or offsite to meet specific needs. The most common question is not “Why hybrid cloud?” but “How do we get started?”
Depending on your specific IT strategy and requirements, consider evaluating the following five types of workloads for hybrid cloud.
Migrations to the cloud sometimes face difficulties in transitioning apps, operational inconsistencies, and incongruent networks. VMware Cloud on AWS is an on-demand hybrid cloud service designed to preserve existing investments and legacy applications, while reaping the rewards of cloud scalability and flexibility.
