VMware leans on hybrid cloud for 'any app, any device' strategy

1/09/2015 by Sharon Shahzad


"We all know an app is meaningless without a device to get access to it anytime, anywhere," said VMware's president and COO.

Hybrid clouds are the way of the future in IT, and they must be run through software-defined architectures, as opined byVMware executives on Monday morning.

Kicking off the virtualization giant's annual VMworld expo, VMware president and chief operating officer Carl Eschenbach outlined the company's vision for any app, running at all times on any device through this infrastructure model.

"We all know an app is meaningless without a device to get access to it anytime, anywhere," said Eschenbach.

Eschenbach suggested to the more than 23,000 attendees at this year's conference -- a record for VMworld -- that IT departments have a few different options of achieving this kind of success rate, from building hybrid cloud environments on their own or running everything on top of hyper-converged infrastructures, among a few other options.

But those infrastructures, he argued, need to be scalable and reliable to support both legacy and cloud-native applications.

"We need to make sure everything is secure, from the data center to the application," Eschenbach asserted.

Deploying a mobile app in the public cloud needs to link back to data typically residing in private cloud environments, added Bill Fathers, general manager of VMware's hybrid cloud services unit, presenting this as one of the most complex (and expensive) challenges for enterprises deploying new cloud models.

With a vast number of companies moving some, if not all, of their operations to the cloud, security continues to be of major concern.
