VMware unveiled a new set of products and services, including VMware Hybrid Cloud Extension Service for Private Cloud, a SaaS offering that provides application mobility and infrastructure hybridity across different vSphere versions, on-premises and in the cloud.

The company said the expanded VMware Cloud Provider Program and new VMware Cloud Services would enable organisations to manage, secure, monitor and automate cloud infrastructure and applications by providing a unified approach for end-to-end visibility into cloud usage, costs, and network traffic.

“As companies move towards a multi-cloud environment, they will need the capability to handle associated risks and complexities,” VMware said in a media release.

“In tandem with this shift, the nature of workplaces is evolving rapidly from traditional desktops to resources and applications across multiple clouds. This raises a new set of challenges that organisations will need to combat, including governance and control, workload provisioning and placement, capacity management, portability and the need to monitor performance, and cost transparency across clouds.”

Duncan Hewett, VMware senior vice president and general manager, Asia Pacific and Japan, said: 

“In this new digital paradigm where technology is all about driving business innovation and growth, we want to set the stage and foundation right for the next 20 years.

“To this end, with our enhanced portfolio of cloud and infrastructure solutions, we are ready to continue supporting our customers in Asia Pacific and Japan drive digital transformation and realize the region’s digital future.”
