What is Azure VMware Solution (AVS)?
Azure VMware Solution empowers businesses to harness their existing VMware skills and tools. It speeds up the process of digital transformation and migrating to the cloud while preserving operational consistency.
With Azure VMware Solution, you gain access to private clouds featuring vSphere clusters. These clusters are constructed from dedicated bare-metal Azure infrastructure. Each provisioned private cloud includes trusted VMware technologies such as vCenter Server, vSAN, vSphere, and NSX-T, ensuring a familiar and reliable environment.
AVS (Azure VMware Solution) has been designed to seamlessly integrate workloads virtualised on VMware technology into the Azure cloud platform. This integration brings together two distinct environments to assist swift cloud migration.
As a verified Microsoft service running on Azure infrastructure, AVS plays an important role in your journey to the cloud, aligning with your business’s digital transformation objectives.
By using VMware’s Cloud Foundation as its foundation, AVS provides access to familiar features like vMotion, ensuring uninterrupted service continuity.
If you are looking to reduce your data centre footprint, AVS can help by decommissioning secondary sites, and modernising business continuity and disaster recovery strategies.
With AVS, you can achieve the following:
Scalability, Automation, and Swift Provisioning: Benefit from rapid scalability, automation, and efficient provisioning for your VMware workloads on Azure’s global infrastructure.
Preserve VMware Investments: Retain your investments in VMware skills, tools, and product sets, including VMware vSphere, vSAN, and vCentre.
Optimal Choice for Microsoft Workloads: Utilise Azure as your preferred cloud platform for Microsoft Windows and SQL Server workloads.
By employing AVS, your business can access additional capacity on-demand, whether consolidating, retiring, or expanding your existing data centres. You can smoothly transition to Azure using VMware’s HCX technology, maintaining familiarity with VMware tools, and eliminating the need for extensive reskilling or hiring of new expertise.
AVS ensures operational continuity when relocating vSphere-based applications to Azure, all without the complexity of application refactoring. Furthermore, AVS offers the advantage of seamless integration with Azure native services such as Azure Backup, Azure Security, and Sentinel, among others, enhancing your overall cloud environment.
