Revolutionizing Enterprises with Google Cloud’s VMware Engine: Spotlight on New Features and Global Expansion
The recent tech expos of VMware Explore in Las Vegas, and Google Cloud Next in San Francisco were abuzz as Google Cloud VMware Engine was unveiled as a transformative solution to port VMware platforms into the Cloud. This revolutionary move for enterprise technology has shaken up the marketplace.
Google Cloud VMware Engine emerges as a panacea to the perennial issues of IT infrastructure with a promise of 99.99% uptime SLA in a single zone. It brings to the table 100 Gbps of dedicated, east-west networking and native Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) integration. The central theme of this Engine revolves around the flexibility and control it provides organizations, by letting them run their VMware workloads natively on Google Cloud.
Delving into its capabilities, VMware Engine has witnessed remarkable upgrades including the introduction of the ve2 node platform. This new platform offers a variety of flexible CPU and storage permutations, providing businesses the agility to scale operations as needed. It supports broad cluster sizes and private clouds allowing larger resources at your disposal while maintaining the uptime SLA. The upcoming preview of this node is expected to add more capabilities and versatility.
Passionate about reaching every corner of the globe, Google Cloud VMware Engine now spans 19 global regions, enabling businesses to leverage its services irrespective of their geographic location. Newly added regions now include cities like Tel Aviv, Turin, Santiago, and Delhi, providing local companies there with access to world-class cloud services.
Disrupting the cost structure of traditional IT, Google Cloud VMware Engine introduces Storage Only Nodes. These nodes enable businesses to add storage without necessarily adding to the compute. Optimal infrastructure utilization and better workload management result in a dramatically lowered Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Additionally, Google Cloud’s Filestore and NetApp Cloud Volumes are supported as datastores. Their integration particularly Filestore High Scale and NetApp Cloud Volumes results in a seamless and flexible enterprise storage solution.
Navigating the digital landscape today requires a distinct emphasis on innovation, cost-effectiveness, and security. Google Cloud VMware Engine reinvents the wheel by encapsulating these core principles. The introduction of new capabilities further propels enterprises towards a revolution in their architecture and business processes.
Entities seeking to migrate their VMware workloads to the Cloud should consider Google Cloud VMware Engine. Its robust and cost-effective solution armed with features like Storage Only Nodes, ve2 node platform, Filestore High Scale, NetApp Cloud Volumes, and more, extends an incredible opportunity for businesses aiming at digital transformation and reducing TCO.
By bringing VMware workloads natively to the Cloud, Google is helping tomorrow’s enterprises today, providing them with the tools to transform, scale and succeed in an ever-evolving digital landscape.
