- Get first-class, consistent support from a single vendor
More cloud, less cost
Lower your total cost of ownership (TCO) by as much as 84 percent for certain scenarios when you move your on-premises VMware workloads to Azure—get cost advantages from economies of scale, use flexible compute options in Azure to right-size and optimise resource utilisation and save even more with offers like Azure Reserved VM Instances and Azure Hybrid Benefit.
Modernise VMware workloads on Azure
Experience completely new innovation possibilities once you migrate your apps to Azure. Run them on containers, refactor them into microservices, or rearchitect them to platform as a service (PaaS) or Serverless—the possibilities are endless. Plus, innovate your apps on-premises and extend your app modernisation efforts to on-premises environments with Azure Stack.
Integrate VMware workloads with Azure services
Enhance your on-premises workloads by integrating them with Azure services such as Azure Backup or Azure Site Recovery. Bring operational intelligence to your workloads using Azure Log Analytics. Manage Azure infrastructure as a service (IaaS) resources from your familiar VMware vRealize console.
Migrate your VMware virtualisation stack to Azure
For VMware workloads that are initially more challenging to migrate, use VMware virtualisation on Azure—a bare-metal solution which is now in limited preview. This approach lets you run the full VMware stack on Azure co-located with other Azure services. And while doing this will not deliver the cost savings and agility of cloud-native services, it will let you reuse your VMware operational skills and gain added flexibility. Contact your Microsoft sales representative to be considered for this preview.
