VMware HCX Platform Embraces VMware Cloud Partners

VMware HCX delivers application migration and mobility for Azure VMware Solutions and leading cloud providers around the world

On the heels of announcing HCX Enterprise and key new features that are driving new workloads and large-scale live migrations at VMworld 2019 U.S., HCX is continuing to drive workload migration and mobility deeper into the VMware partner ecosystem. The vision for HCX was always to build a migration and mobility platform that delivers value across the VMware portfolio and we’ve come a long way with deep integrations into vSphere and vCenter as well as support for VMware Cloud on AWS, VMware Cloud Foundation, VMware NSX and the recent addition of support for Site Recovery Manager, but we’re far from done. Our newest product innovations are driving HCX even deeper into the portfolio, adding HCX support for new metal-as-a-service offerings from key cloud partners, delivering new packaging, automation, and visibility for VMware Cloud Provider Program (VCPP) partners and enabling migrations across those partner clouds.

 

VMware HCX Enables New Cloud Migration Capabilities for Azure VMware Solutions
As companies look to modernize datacenters and refresh hardware and software, they are embracing hybrid and public cloud offerings for automation and efficiency. Azure VMware Solutions provides a great foundation for that modernization. To support this partnership, we’re announcing that VMware HCX is now available for Azure VMware Solutions. The addition of HCX will enable customers to more easily move workloads to Azure, accelerating migrations and time-to-value for their new cloud investment. HCX automates the migration of applications and rebalancing of workloads to  Azure VMware Solutions by making workload mobility and protection a simple customer workflow.

Simplifying Workload Mobility for VMware Cloud Providers: HCX for Cloud Providers
HCX was initially announced by Pat Gelsinger with VCPP partner IBM at VMworld 2017 Europe. Since then, HCX has been adopted by hundreds of providers around the world to simplify customer migrations to the cloud. While the HCX feature set and product family has adapted to customer needs, the VCPP business model has also undergone some recent changes to meet the needs of our cloud provider partners with the introduction of the Flex Pricing Model. The Flex Pricing Model delivers a more flexible licensing model for partners based on one core bundle of products for all providers that can be expanded as needed by selecting from various add-ons. The new flexibility allows providers to build custom solutions to align to their particular offering and ultimately their customer’s needs.

We’re excited to announce the availability of a new VCPP add-on, HCX for Cloud Providers, that delivers the full suite of HCX Advanced and HCX Enterprise functionality to all of our cloud provider partners via a simple consumption model. With this new HCX offering, cloud providers can help customers quickly evacuate on-premises datacenters or colocation facilities, readily move from other cloud offerings, and deliver their customers the fastest time-to-value for their new cloud investment.
