Article | April 17, 2020

Your organization’s ever-growing software needs may feel like a bottomless pit. To continually feed those needs, you can end up taking steps that lead to software bloat: overbuying an inventory of applications that are spread out all over the place, distributed via loosely managed deployment formats. The provisioning nightmares, training, and license compliance issues that follow are like an indigestion keeping you up at night. All this bloat causes confusion, and unnecessary IT workload. Just think about the sunken costs and lack of ability to generate business intelligence! So, what can you do? One cannot simply toss out years of effort and unplug existing software without giving some thought to the matter.

VMware pushed its operations management tool to the cloud with a new software-as-a-service (SaaS) form factor and newly added hybrid cloud support for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and vSphere Kubernetes deployments in addition to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.vRealize Operations is VMware’s on-premises software product that provides operations management across applications, infrastructure, and clouds. The new vRealize Operations Cloud, which is generally available today, has the same user interface and features as the on-premises version. “It offers everything you can do with vRealize operations on prem,” said Taruna Gandhi, VP of product marketing for cloud management at VMware. This includes “performance optimization, which includes fully automated workload balancing and placement” based on business and operational intent, she added.The product also helps enterprises better manage costs and improve efficiency by making recommendations about procurement and rightsizing workloads.

Now, we at DSA are amazed by VMware’s new releases. At the same time, while we feel the concept is great, we don’t understand if you run VMware on public cloud, is the cost higher than simply running on the public cloud like AWS’ native virtual machines?According to VMware’s Sanjay K. Deshmukh, Vice President and Managing Director for Southeast Asia and Korea, “If you look at a total cost of ownership for a customer to run or to migrate an existing application to cloud and you compare that in situations where they run it on native cloud and VMware cloud (VMware cloud running on AWS or any provider), when you compare this two, we have seen our customers able to reduce their total cost of ownership to the upwards of about 25 to 30%.To be specific, Sanjay said the savings are, they don’t have to re-platform any of their applications in order to run in the cloud. Customers on their journey of application modernisation or moving applications to cloud will find that the amount of effort cost and energy they are saving in re-platforming and rearchitecting their applications to the cloud is massive. The costs are upward of a million-dollar per applications or more depending on the complexity of the application.
