Did you know that by adopting VMware into your cloud or virtualized environment you can accelerate the deployment of regulated workloads, automate required controls to meet operational requirements and meet PCI requirements?
Watch this informative webcast to find out how VMware can help revolutionize your virtual or cloud-based infrastructure, with additional discussions on:
- VMware compliance reference architectures
- Challenges cloud brings and the issue of trust
- Security and compliance influence design the software-defined data center
- Why “classic” security and compliance solutions fall short
Hear why you should upgrade to VMware vSphere with Operations Management, which includes our core virtualization product, vSphere, with the addition of performance monitoring and capacity management capabilities.
Adding a cloud platform to your existing IT environment can often “cloud” the management of your IT resources, requiring the use of multiple management tools, which can be both confusing and labor intensive. To alleviate this, VMware enables you to leverage existing investments, processes and expertise with a hybrid cloud model that lowers your cost of ownership, while increasing productivity levels.
During the webcast, you’ll learn how to:
- Manage your cloud resources with your choice of VMware management tools (including vCloud Automation Center, vCloud Application Director, VMware vCenter Hyperic, and vCloud Configuration Manager);
- Administer vCloud Hybrid Service resources using the VMware vSphere Web Client
- Streamline the administration and consumption of resources across vSphere and vCloud Hybrid Service
