New challenges (and opportunities) with VMware

We know VMware . . .


VMware is a virtual machine software firm founded in Palto Alto, California in 1999.

Its programs are deployed ubiquitously in business for:

  • Desktop virtualization
  • Server virtualization
  • Network virtualization (NSX-V)
  • Cloud management
  • Security

How VMware Virtual Machines Work

  • VMware is the leading virtualization software in the web hosting field making it possible for more than one instance of operating systems to run on the same server.
  • VMware supports all kinds of OS’s including Windows, Linux and Unix
  • VMware Virtual Machines Allows You to Maximize Server Resources

BUT, does VMware NSX-V end of life* put your business at risk?

Option #1 Migration

  • Clearly the easiest option as you will replace one VMware technology with another – less training
  • But be aware that there are some functionality changes and a partner with NSX technology expertise can help you navigate the complex upgrade path(s).
  • These are the options:
    1. Co-existence: (add an NSX cluster to an existing NSX-V deployment.
    2. Create a whole new NSX environment via ‘lift-and-shift’
    3. In place migration
  • We can help with all 3.

BUT, does VMware NSX-V end of life* put your business at risk?

Option 2 – Digital Transformation*

  • Everything in an organization is now interconnected.
  • Platforms, capabilities, and initiatives often involve multiple digital and physical technologies securely working together.
  • Evolve into the future. Today’s breakthrough technology is tomorrow’s legacy tech.
  • Achieve a greater strategic business value via capacity to change and ability to win.
  • Better align and execute against your business strategy to achieve your desired results of advantage and adaptability – of the organization, humans, and technology.

We can help with this too.

Option #1 NSX-V to NSX-T migration

This may not be a straight-forward migration depending on the complexity of your current NSX-V deployment!

What we think

Migrating from NSX-V allows you to gain access to the improved features and use cases supported by NSX-T, including:

  • Multi-cloud networking and security for VM
  • Bare metal and containerized workloads and cloud-native apps
  • Streamlined operations
  • Increased automation opportunities, and
  • Integrations with other products.

Competitive Value-priced Services

NSX V2T migration requires careful planning and preparation and for most customers, migrating from NSX-V to NSX-T will be a one-time occurrence.

  • This makes it a high effort migration with significant risk, given there may be no previous migration experience among your team.
  • Our partner has been migrating VMware customers for over a decade and are seeing real success with their NSX-V to NSX-T #managedmigration service.
  • Leverage their teams extensive experience on the virtualized network to supplement your existing team, thus ensuring your migration is a success.

Option 2 – Digital Transformation Opportunity

Hybrid cloud helps you work the way you want, only better

  • The actual term ‘hybrid cloud’ usually refers to a single pane of management glass that lets a user administer both on prem and public clouds.
  • The Global Hybrid Cloud market size is projected to reach US$159.6bn by 2028, from US$6.2bn in 2021, at a CAGR of 14.3% during 2022-2028 © Digital Journal
  • The Infrastructure as a Service segment is expected to register the highest CAGR owing to the increasing demand to reduce IT complexities, hire a skilled workforce to manage the IT infrastructures, and reduce deployment costs for data centers to drive the adoption of IaaS

Hybrid cloud services can meet any customer’s needs

  • Cloud computing is no magical fix. But it is a very powerful tool that can solve a range of transformation issues.
  • An experienced partner with many transformations under their belt can help you avoid many of the pitfalls.
  • For customers with key and important uptime requirements hybrid environments can help with disaster avoidance.
  • If you are looking to develop apps at greater velocity having dev and test environments in secure, but flexible (no term) clouds is hugely beneficial.
