Cloud migration: why use the Google Cloud VMware Engine?

Data and information are fundamental for companies. Managing them in the right way will make a difference in the efficiency and productivity of organizations. 

For this reason, the right tools and procedures must be chosen to handle this information. Read on to learn more about innovative cloud migration solutions.

Virtualization and modernization in organizations

As a result of server limitations, many organizations today must deploy their information on different servers. Each of these servers operates at a fraction of its capacity in order to keep up with today’s high storage and processing demands. This results in process inefficiencies and excessive operating costs. 

In these cases, virtualization, which is software that simulates the functionality of the hardware and creates a virtual computer system, must be used. This allows organizations to run more than one virtual system and multiple operating or application systems on a single server.

Modernization and virtualization bring with them multiple benefits, among which the following stand out: 

  • Reduced operating and capital costs.
  • Reduction or elimination of downtime. 
  • Increased IT productivity, efficiency, agility and responsiveness.
  • Faster provisioning of applications and resources. 
  • Improved business continuity and DR.
  • Simplified data center management.
  • Economies of scale and greater efficiency.

Virtualization vs. Cloud Migration

Although virtualization and cloud services are equally interesting technologies, they have several differences that make them not interchangeable.

On the one hand, virtualization is software that makes computing environments independent of the physical infrastructure. On the other hand, cloud migration is a service that offers shared computing resources (software and/or data) on demand over the Internet.

As complementary solutions they are very valid, and organizations can start with the virtualization of their servers and then migrate to the cloud for agile results, as well as much better self-service.

Google Cloud VMware Engine: the ultimate cloud migration solution

Google Cloud VMware Engine is a native VMware Cloud Foundation solution sold and supported by Google. With this new tool, you can migrate or extend an on-premises environment to Google Cloud in a matter of minutes. How? By connecting to a native VMware environment directly from the Google Cloud console. 

Using Google Cloud’s VMware Engine you will be able to migrate or extend your on-premise workloads from VMware to Google Cloud in a matter of minutes and without refactoring your applications. In addition, they will be able to run the workloads in exactly the same way as on-premises.

Google Cloud VMware Engine offers the most complete and advanced VMware Cloud technologies with a high degree of consistency and compatibility between on-premises and cloud environments. In addition, using virtualization software such as VMware it is possible to run one or more operating systems simultaneously in an isolated environment. This makes it possible to create complete virtual computers that run inside a physical computer, running on a completely independent operating system. 

Why Google Cloud VMware Engine?

You can migrate or extend on-premises workloads to the Google Cloud in minutes. Likewise, you can simplify the migration, scaling, creation and deployment of applications in the cloud.

Tools and processes

You will be able to work with VMware solutions without the need to develop new skills or training. Among other things, the solution consists of VMware vSphere, vCenter, vSAN, NSX-T and HCX for cloud migration in a specific environment in Google Cloud.

Also, a great reduction of complexity in processes is observed, since workloads can be executed and managed as they would be done in the local environment. In addition, the cost and complexity of application refactoring is eliminated.

Simplified operations

Operations are simplified by deploying VMware vSphere workloads natively in a dedicated software-defined data center in the Google Cloud. This maintains consistency between virtual machines and public cloud computing services, significantly simplifying operations.

Another great benefit of this tool is that you can leverage the best of both the private cloud and the public cloud for greater agility. In addition, it allows you to reduce overall operating expenses related to physical infrastructure management. 

Likewise, you get services to market quickly and get them up and running quickly, smoothly and completely securely. 

Intelligent information

Thanks to Google services such as bigQuery or AI ML you will be able to process your data much faster. You will also be able to analyze customer behavior and act on the information generated from these tools.

All this will allow you to respond quickly to changes and address business criticalities on demand, improving performance and adjusting to the environment. At the end of the day, this tool will allow you to grow your business at all levels.
