VMware has expanded its ongoing partnership with Oracle to help customers modernize their VMware workloads on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).
As part of the expanded partnership, customers will be able to subscribe to Oracle Cloud VMware Solution within the framework of VMware Cloud Universal, a flexible purchasing and consumption program that helps businesses simplify purchasing and accelerate adoption of eligible VMware Cloud services. The VMware Cloud Universal program is well suited to customers with hybrid cloud architecture, customers with extended or variable cloud migration timelines, or cloud bursting requirements.
With VMware Cloud Universal, customers purchase credits that they can use to deploy workloads on Oracle Cloud VMware Solution. By applying their credits to Oracle Cloud VMware Solution subscriptions, customers will benefit from a simplified mechanism for managing their cloud expenses. Furthermore, the Benefits of VMware Cloud Acceleration offers VMware Cloud Universal customers a flexible way to leverage the value of their VMware Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) perpetual licenses when migrating their on-premises workloads to the Oracle Cloud VMware solution.
The Oracle Cloud VMware solution is designed for businesses requiring the highest levels of scalability, performance, security and administrative control. Customers can directly manage cloud infrastructure and VMware consoles for complete administrative control of their entire VMware stack. This allows businesses to quickly migrate their on-premises VMware fleets to the cloud with existing skills, best practices and tools. VMware environments operate in more securely isolated customer tenancies with the highest levels of security, including FedRAMP High, to meet compliance requirements. Additionally, the Oracle Cloud VMware solution delivers enterprise-grade performance with predictable costs, including the industry’s lowest data egress prices and consistent low pricing across 45 global Oracle Cloud regions. With the Oracle Cloud VMware solution, customers benefit from OCI’s flexible cloud infrastructure and zero-trust security, while retaining the full VMware administrator experience and control.
Zia Yusuf, senior vice president, strategic ecosystem and industry solutions at VMware, said: “Enabling an intelligent cloud approach is about accelerating innovation by providing customers with access to the best cloud environments for any application.
“VMware and Oracle are helping our customers become cloud smart by providing faster, simpler ways to purchase and deploy the Oracle VMware Cloud solution and our cross-cloud services. The combination of VMware and Oracle enables greater business agility, improves resiliency, and allows customers to benefit from the economics and scalability of the cloud.
Oracle and VMware share a commitment to making it easier for customers to run VMware enterprise workloads in OCI. Since the launch of the Oracle Cloud VMware solution, customers such as Cybereason, Atos, Telefonica, TIM Brasil, Aya Bank, San Jose Water, Maxim’s, Prophecy International and many other companies in the financial, telecommunications, Retail, manufacturing and government agencies have adopted Oracle Cloud VMware Solution to accelerate their cloud journey and simplify application modernization and multi-cloud operations.
Doug Smith, senior vice president of Global Strategic Partnerships at Oracle, said: “Oracle continues to evolve its partnership with VMware, and with this new integration into the VMware Cloud Universal program, customers can benefit from a more seamless way to purchase subscriptions to the Oracle Cloud VMware solution. .
“Enterprise customers should have choice in how they purchase their infrastructure and applications. With VMware Cloud Universal, VMware and Oracle customers have additional flexibility to build and operate their applications, databases and workloads in OCI.
