VMware Skyline™ is radically transforming customer support

By: Dale Ferrario

Customers like you that run business-critical operations on VMware environments need an infrastructure that’s always-on and optimized for peak performance. You expect fast, environment-specific remediation recommendations, and proactive analytics that identify problems before they occur.

We’re addressing these needs with VMware Skyline™: an innovative support technology, developed entirely by VMware Engineering, that provides VMware technical support engineers with extreme visibility into your environment.

Imagine if we knew your environment as well as you do. We could tell you - in advance - of a problem you’d have in the future. And then we gave you proactive, prescriptive, and predictive recommendations to fix the issue. And if you do need to call us with a problem, we have the visibility into your environment that lets us quickly diagnose your situation without a lot of effort and hours on your part.

Here’s how it works. Customers with active support subscriptions install the VMware Skyline Collector, a standalone appliance that automatically and securely collects product usage data such as configuration, feature, and performance data.

It then listens for changes, events and patterns and analyzes the information using a robust rules and machine learning engine. The rules engine is where an ever-growing library of support intelligence, product knowledge, and logic is stored to analyze inbound streams of product information.

It will alert when a customer has deviated from a VMware Validated Design or needs to align to a best practice configurations or patch level. Issues identified are fed into the analytics library - consisting of hundreds of detection rules - to allow us to solve the issue for multiple customers.

And you can rest assured knowing that we take privacy and security seriously - VMware Skyline has a robust privacy program. Customer data is transferred to VMware over an encrypted channel and is stored in a secure VMware repository in the US, operated by VMware.

Then the VMware Technical Support Engineer takes the analyzed, environment-specific data to provide prescriptive recommendations back to you to improve your environment’s reliability and stability.

Aligned to Global Services offerings, VMware Skyline is initially available for Premier Support customers with Production Support customer availability coming next year. Today VMware Skyline provides increased visibility for VMware vSphere and VMware NSX environments.  Additional products will be added over time.

With minimal administration, a rigorous privacy and security policy, and transformational value, VMware Skyline is a game changer for your support experience with VMware.

Amadeus verwaltet das weltweite Reise-Ökosystem mit der Netzwerkvirtualisierung von VMware

Beitrag von Annette Maier, Vice President & General Manager Germany, VMware

Für viele Erholungsbedürftige ist es eine nervige Angelegenheit: Die Flug- und Hotelbuchung für den lang ersehnten Urlaub. Bis man die Daten aller Mitreisenden eingegeben hat und denkt, endlich am Ziel zu sein, vergehen gefühlt Stunden. Und dann hängt sich natürlich im letzten Moment die Webseite auf! Damit das ihren Kunden nicht passiert, hat die Amadeus IT Group aufgerüstet – zu Spitzenzeiten verarbeitet Amadeus bis zu 39.000 Enduser-Transaktionen pro Sekunde!

Die Amadeus IT Group ist ein führender Anbieter zukunftsweisender Technologien für die Reisebranche mit einem Umsatz von mehr als 3 Milliarden Euro. Von der Flugsuche bis hin zur Buchung, von der Preiskalkulation über die Ticketausstellung bis hin zum Reservierungsmanagement, vom Check-in bis zum Abflug, von der Hotel- bis zur Mietwagenbuchung: Die Technologie von Amadeus verhilft der Reisebranche zu stetigem Fortschritt.

Hohe Erwartungen der Kunden

Durch die vielen Stakeholder von Amadeus – darunter Fluglinien, Flughäfen, Hotels, Bahngesellschaften und Reiseveranstalter – bewegt sich das Unternehmen in einem dynamischen Branchenumfeld, das hohe Agilität, Effizienz, Skalierbarkeit und Verfügbarkeit erfordert und zugleich eine strikte Kostenkontrolle nötig macht. Die Kunden erwarten eine absolut hohe Verfügbarkeit für ihre Systeme, ohne Rücksicht darauf, dass das Transaktionsvolumen beständig exponentiell wächst. Zugleich erwarten die Kunden Innovationen, neue Business Services und hochentwickelte Anwendungen.

Um die Kundenwünsche besser zu bedienen, wollte Amadeus eine flexiblere und handfeste Cloud-basierte Anwendungsplattform aufbauen, die die verschiedenen Stakeholder miteinander verbindet, sich einfach Veränderungen anpasst und verschiedene Geschäftsmodelle bedienen kann; eine Plattform, die Anwendungen schneller bereitstellt als je zuvor: Amadeus Cloud Services. Im Mittelpunkt steht der Reisende, dessen Reiseerlebnis optimiert werden soll. Um das zu ermöglichen, benötigte Amadeus eine flexible Cloud Computing-Plattform, die eine agile Anwendungsentwicklung unterstützt.

Amadeus setzt auf Cloud Computing & Open Source

Um die Lebenszyklen der Anwendungsentwicklung zu beschleunigen und neue Geschäftschancen schnell erschließen und wahrnehmen zu können, setzt Amadeus auf Cloud Computing. Amadeus Cloud Services basiert zu großen Teilen auf Open Source-Technologie, da sie mehr Flexibilität bietet. Die Cloud ermöglicht schnellere Deployments und gibt Entwicklern den Zugang zu OpenStack Services und APIs, womit sie neue Apps und Services bauen können, die zu Wettbewerbsvorteilen verhelfen. Mit NSX hat Amadeus zusätzlich die Möglichkeit, auf diesen Plattformen flexibel Netzwerke zu erschaffen und die Grenzen zu beseitigen, auf die das Unternehmen bei früheren Networking-Lösungen immer wieder gestoßen ist.

Kundenbeispiele wie Amadeus zeigen, welche neuen Innovationen durch technologischen Fortschritt realisiert werden können. Unternehmen müssen heutzutage beständig über den eigenen Tellerrand schauen und sich überlegen, wie sie den Kunden einen echten Mehrwert bieten können. Sie grenzen sich so von der Konkurrenz ab und bleiben auch langfristig wettbewerbsfähig. In der modernen schnelllebigen Welt ist IT von entscheidender Bedeutung und kann ganz neue Tore öffnen.

Netzwerk-Virtualisierung als ein Schlüsselfaktor für eine agile Multi-Cloud-Strategie

Jedes Unternehmen, egal in welcher Branche, ist bestrebt, flexibel auf Marktanforderungen reagieren zu können und so wettbewerbsfähiger zu werden. Dass dies am besten mit einer agilen IT-Infrastruktur im Rahmen einer Cloud Computing-Strategie zu erreichen ist, haben die meisten verinnerlicht. Dass sie sich andererseits nicht tagtäglich mit der Cloud und deren Betriebsmodellen beschäftigen wollen oder können, ist ebenso verständlich wie nachvollziehbar. Die IT soll einfach funktionieren – und Hand in Hand mit den Geschäftszielen arbeiten. Um dies zu erreichen, muss die Cloud-Umgebung entsprechend der Business-Anforderungen gestaltet werden und idealerweise erfahrene IT-Berater mit ins Boot geholt werden, die einen Business Cloud Alignment Ansatz verfolgen.

Das Hauptproblem, das wir nach wie vor bei unseren Kunden feststellen, ist, dass die Geschwindigkeit, in der sich das Business entwickelt, nicht mit der der IT im Einklang ist. Das Business ist meist um einiges voraus, was in der heutigen Zeit nicht der Fall sein dürfte. Im Gegenteil: Die IT sollte nicht nur gleichauf mit dem Business, sie sollte idealerweise sogar eine Nasenlänge voraus sein.

Große, europäische Bank als prägnantes Beispiel

Einer unserer Partner aus dem VMware Cloud Partner Netzwerk, ein führender Datacenter und Service Provider in Europa, war in dieses Projekt involviert. Dabei ging es darum, die Bank, deren IT-Abläufe über einen Wirrwarr von Cloud-Umgebungen abgewickelt wurden, agiler zu machen. Durch eine Vielzahl von Standardisierungsmaßnahmen, bei denen einzelne Dokumenten-basierte Arbeitsabläufe manuell vorgenommen werden mussten, liefen die Prozesse in der Bank recht langsam ab. Das IT-Team musste sage und schreibe 63 einzelne Schritte vollziehen und dabei außerdem die Security und Compliance Policies überprüfen. Das war alles sehr langwierig und unbefriedigend für alle Beteiligten.

Unser Partner half schließlich, diesem Wirrwarr zu entkommen und brachte mit der VMware CrossCloud-Architektur Licht ins Dunkel: Der VMware Multi-Cloud-Ansatz bedeutet, dass unsere Kunden zahlreiche Anwendungen und Umgebungen entweder im eigenen Rechenzentrum, bei Partnern oder in einer gemischten Umgebung einheitlich betreiben, zentral verwalten und managen können. Der oft genannte „Pferdefuß”Security lässt sich dadurch umgehen, indem sich Netzwerk- und Security-Services standardisieren und automatisieren lassen. Und das geht – über alle Clouds hinweg – mittels VMware NSX.

Wie das funktioniert? Indem NSX Sicherheitsfunktionen direkt in den Hypervisor integriert. NSX ermöglicht Mikrosegmentierung und detaillierte Sicherheit für einzelne Workloads und schafft so ein wesentlich höheres Maß an Sicherheit im Rechenzentrum. Sicherheitsrichtlinien bleiben an die Workloads gebunden, egal wo sich die Workloads in der Netzwerktopologie befinden.

Das wird dadurch möglich, indem NSX Netzwerkfunktionen von der zugrunde liegenden Hardware abstrahiert und Netzwerkfunktionen und Sicherheitsrichtlinien mit ihren jeweiligen Workloads verknüpft. So können sich Anwendungen und Daten überall befinden und überall zugänglich sein – in der eigenen „privaten” Cloud, in einer Cloud eines Service Providers oder in einer hybriden Umgebung. Die Workloads lassen sich jederzeit problemlos von einem Rechenzentrum in ein anderes verschieben.

Was das für die europäische Bank bedeutet?

Nachdem unser Service Partner die Netzwerk-Virtualisierung erfolgreich eingeführt, Arbeitsschritte standardisiert und automatisiert hat, konnten deren Anwendungen in einer gemeinsamen Betriebsumgebung Cloud- und Geräte-übergreifend vernetzt, abgesichert, ausgeführt und verwaltet werden. Einzelne „Cloud-Silos” gibt es nicht mehr. Stattdessen freut sich die IT-Organisation nun über eine gemeinsame Betriebsumgebung, die die nötige Transparenz und die erforderlichen Tools zur Cloud-übergreifenden Visualisierung und Verwaltung von Ressourcen, Workloads und Betriebsabläufen beinhaltet.

Schlussendlich können dadurch neu benötigte Ressourcen innerhalb einer halben Stunde – statt wie früher innerhalb von Tagen – bereitgestellt und umgehend auf die Belange der Kunden eingegangen werden. NSX ist der beste Weg, Agilität zu garantieren, ohne Abstriche bei der Sicherheit in Kauf nehmen zu müssen.

Driving Security Transformation: the Virtual Network Assessment

&#rsquo;A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step&#rdquo; – Lao Tzu

As a trusted partner, helping our customers to modernize their IT security infrastructure can feel like the proverbial journey of a thousand miles. Most traditional IT security architectures are ill equipped to handle the persistent and creative nature of today&#rsquo;s cyber security threats. The dynamic and very public nature of these threats have created a booming industry of new entrants into the security market. The result has been an expansion of opportunity for security-minded partners, but also a challenge in determining how to lead customers down a trusted path for security solutions. Some estimates have customers using an average of 70 or more security solutions in their current IT environments. At the same time, there is a growing need for a transformation in how we build, manage, and secure IT infrastructure. Traditional perimeter-based security models are ineffective, as proven by a steady stream of newsworthy hacks and data breaches.

In this expanding and complex cybersecurity landscape, where do we start? It can be overwhelming to keep up with the rapid pace of change in cybersecurity threats, and even more so in staying educated about the innovative solutions available to protect our customers. As Lao Tzu noted its starts with a single step. At VMware, we believe the first step is gaining visibility to the current state of traffic moving across our customers&#rsquo; virtual and physical infrastructure. Today, an average of 80% of security budgets are spent on data center perimeter security and monitoring tools such as firewalls. At the same time, 80% of network traffic actually takes place within the four walls of our customers&#rsquo; data centers. Fundamentally, this means our customers have visibility to 20% of what is taking place in their network at a given time. Before suggesting point products to patch against the latest threat, let us take time to gain visibility into our customers&#rsquo; networks, and make informed architectural recommendations.

Enter the Virtual Network Assessment (VNA) with VMware. A VNA utilizing a VMware tool called vRealize Network Insight helps our partners to provide their customers a holistic view of the traffic in their data center across the virtual and physical domains. Help your customers define how much traffic exists between VM&#rsquo;s, applications, VLANs, and VXLANs. Identify threat planes across physical networks, virtual domains, cloud, and mobile environments. Ultimately, a VNA will provide the intelligence and visibility necessary to map an executable journey to a more secure IT infrastructure. A VNA takes about one week, and installs remotely in under an hour.

The thousand-mile journey of transforming IT security architectures to combat the ever-expanding nature of cyber security threats can be daunting. Whether considering a mobile security strategy, securing next-generation cloud applications, or a micro-segmentation project, let VMware help you and your customers with a simple first step. Check out the Partner Virtual Network Assessment today and do not miss exciting sessions at Partner Exchange in Las Vegas including:

  • NSX Assessment-Led Selling

Graham Crich spiega il vCAN partner network e i cloud service in un mondo multi-cloud

in un mondo multi-cloud

Il mese scorso, i cloud service provider di tutta l&#rsquo;area EMEA si sono incontrati all&#rsquo;evento VMware vCAN LIVE per discutere come stanno aiutando le organizzazioni di tutta la Region a trasformare le proprie attività con servizi multi-cloud. In questo testo, Graham Crich, EMEA Director, Cloud and Service Provider Partner, parla del ruolo e del valore del network e di come stiamo lavorando con i partner per aiutare le organizzazioni in tutta l’area EMEA a trasformare le loro attività.

Cominciando dall&#rsquo;inizio: cos&#rsquo;è vCAN?

vCAN – vCloud Air Network– è un ecosistema globale di cloud provider che fornisce servizi cloud basati su tecnologia VMware alle organizzazioni di tutte le dimensioni e in tutti i settori. La rete è costituita da un ampio numero di società partner che hanno una caratteristica comune: sono in gran parte provider che vengono dai managed service e che forniscono cloud esterni ai clienti dai propri data center.

Abbiamo lavorato con i partner cloud negli ultimi 10 anni, inizialmente distribuendo vSphere e vCenter per fornire infrastrutture dedicate ai propri clienti. Ci hanno seguito in questo percorso, motivo per cui il loro approccio ora è più cloud-based. Molti hanno adottato vCloud Director quando è stato lanciato, per dare accesso alle persone ai propri cloud e successivamente abbiamo dato loro gli strumenti per accedere al mega cloud di terze parti rendendo l&#rsquo;approccio ibrido. Da quel momento, abbiamo visto aumentare l&#rsquo;adozione di reti e storage virtualizzati in NSX e vSAN, in quanto entrambi offrono la possibilità di integrare più clienti, offrendo grande agilità senza compromettere la sicurezza.

Il network stesso è considerevole. Abbiamo più di 4500 partner nella rete globale, di cui 2500 solo in EMEA.

Qual è il problema principale che vCAN aiuta a superare?

La grande sfida per le organizzazioni è trovare il modo per essere più veloci per continuare a essere competitive. E la spinta per l&#rsquo;agilità generalmente porta alla digital transformation, che è essa stessa una sfida per i team IT.

Per molti, quella trasformazione arriva sotto forma di creazione di un ambiente cloud flessibile – dall&#rsquo; infrastruttura attraverso la gestione di ciascun dispositivo endpoint – dando la libertà di innovare e accrescere la recettività alle condizioni di mercato, con una maggiore velocità nel lanciare prodotti e servizi. E per rendere quel cloud pienamente flessibile? Deve essere basato su un&#rsquo;infrastruttura ibrida multi-cloud, e deve aiutare a supportare le specifiche sfide di ogni organizzazione dello specifico settore.

Come fanno le diverse aziende a fare tutto questo? Bene, molti non hanno il tempo o le risorse dedicate a farlo internamente – sia da una prospettiva CapEx, OpEx e di management. Questo è dove i partner vCAN intervengono.

Quindi come aiutano i partner vCAN?

Il range di servizi offerti dai partner del vCAN – e i diversi modi in cui loro possono aiutare i clienti – è vasto. In base alla necessità, il vCAN offre infrastruttura hosted, desktop-as-a-service, disaster recovery e managed service.

Certamente l&#rsquo;approccio per il raggiungimento del set-up ideale del cloud differirà sulla base del cliente, delle dimensioni e della sua industria.

I nostri partner forniscono le risposte a diversi tipi di organizzazioni – da quelle che richiedono una serie di risorse aggiuntive per gestire i periodi di picco a quelle che necessitano di un&#rsquo;infrastruttura ibrida di grandi dimensioni, completamente flessibile, multi-cloud, tutto l&#rsquo;anno.

Stiamo vedendo sempre più quest&#rsquo;ultimo caso, con organizzazioni che vogliono il meglio di entrambi i mondi. Questo può voler dire un approccio ibrido con risorse on-premise per la sicurezza e cloud pubblico e off-premise per la scalabilità – e in modo orizzontale diversi mega cloud, in modo che il personale possa costruire e spostare le applicazioni nel modo più adatto alle proprie esigenze.

I nostri partner lavorano a stretto contatto con i clienti per creare soluzioni di multi-cloud complete, specificatamente su misura per le loro necessità, costruendo e gestendo servizi basati sulle esperienze per mercati verticali e per vicinanza con il cliente e con le sue sfide di business. Per esempio, un&#rsquo;organizzazione di servizi finanziari potrebbe necessitare di un&#rsquo;infrastruttura agile per aiutarla a muoversi rapidamente sulla base dei cambiamenti di mercato, ma per questo occorre lavorare con partner che possano garantire che il suo ambiente soddisfi le severe norme di conformità PCI DSS e le leggi del settore senza fallire.

E dove entra in gioco VMware?

I nostri partner vCAN offrono soluzioni ai loro clienti. Queste soluzioni attivano la delivery rapida e conveniente di servizi di cloud ibrido che le organizzazioni necessitano per far fronte alle sfide di cui sopra. Che si tratti di infrastructure-as-a-service, disaster recovery o desktop-as-a-service, è tutto basato sulla tecnologia VMware. I service provider possono beneficiare dalla diminuzione del time to market, degli investimenti di capitale ridotti e dei più bassi costi di sviluppo, pur continuando a offrire servizi competitivi nel mercato del cloud computing.

Abbiamo lanciato la nostra architettura di Cross–Cloud alla fine dello scorso anno per aiutare i nostri partner cloud a supportare il multi-cloud. L&#rsquo;architettura fornisce un&#rsquo;integrazione senza interruzioni tra cloud, con un modo semplice di eseguire, gestire, connettere e proteggere applicazioni su diversi dispositivi ma in un ambiente operativo comune. Il Cross-Cloud nasce attraverso la VMware Cloud Foundation, uno stack integrato che fornisce infrastrutture di cloud ibrido enterprise-ready alle organizzazioni di ogni dimensione.

vCAN in azione

Prendete Rackspace, uno dei nostri principali partner globali e uno dei più grossi managed cloud provider dell&#rsquo;area EMEA. Rackspace è in grado di comprendere che le organizzazioni vogliono solo un&#rsquo;infrastruttura sottostante che li aiuterà a essere il più agili possibile, rimanendo però al sicuro – e che non si interessano particolarmente di quale approccio cloud li porti a quel risultato. Per questa ragione, l&#rsquo;azienda offre competenze relative ai principali cloud del mondo – VMware, AWS, Microsoft (Azure and Hyper-V), OpenStack e Google.

Mentre offre accesso a questa vastità di mega cloud, è attraverso le tecnologie della VMware Cloud Foundation quali NSX, vSAN e vRealize Suite che Rackspace gestirà l&#rsquo;utilizzo di queste da parte dei suoi clienti. Questo può avvenire attraverso un cloud pubblico, un cloud privato o tramite un approccio ibrido. Rackspace provvederà a trovare la migliore soluzione alle richieste dei propri business, dando loro completa agilità ma senza che affrontino la spesa e la complessità del dover fare tutto per conto proprio.

In che modo VMware aiuta i suoi partner vCAN?

Vogliamo far integrare le nostre tecnologie negli stack dei nostri partner il più facilmente possibile per loro. Così, oltre al fatto che i nostri partner possono contattarci in qualsiasi momento, abbiamo anche creato un vCloud Architecture Toolkit dedicato ai Service Provider. Il toolkit include un numero di documenti self-service, tutti creati per soluzioni, per facilitare l&#rsquo;integrazione con gli stack esistenti. Sono disponibili in più lingue e contengono molte informazioni per aiutare i partner durante il loro percorso con noi.

Che cosa significa l&#rsquo;acquisizione di OVH per vCAN?

Si tratta di &#rsquo;business as usual&#rdquo;. OVH è uno dei più grandi partner globali di vCAN e continuerà a esserlo. Sappiamo che sapranno offrire una grande customer experience a tutte le aziende che ancora utilizzeranno vCloud Air. Tutte le organizzazioni su vCloud Air continueranno ad accedere agli stessi servizi, in modo invariato.

Com&#rsquo;è il futuro di vCAN?

È certamente un futuro luminoso. il mercato è davvero orientato al cloud e al mega cloud, ma i managed service sono molto importanti per realizzare un multi-cloud, e in quanto tali stanno crescendo rapidamente - quasi come le tecnologie cloud. Per questo i nostri partner vCAN sono così importanti. È un mercato imponente, che è cresciuto più del 40% lo scorso anno.

Firma invitada: ¿Por qué dar 63 pasos cuando puede dar solo uno?

En esta entrada de nuestra serie de firmas invitadas, Ole Væhrens, director de ventas y servicios profesionales en Proact, habla sobre la virtualización de la red como factor clave en la estrategia multi-cloud flexible

Las empresas intersectoriales solo quieren trabajar de forma más inteligente, ser flexibles y más competitivas, o saber más sobre la nube que se adapta mejor a sus necesidades. Por eso en Proact hemos adoptado un enfoque propio de aproximación a la nube empresarial. Las TI necesitan fundirse con las empresas y sus metas, ese es el punto de partida para iniciar nuestras conversaciones con los usuarios. Después extraemos sus objetivos empresariales y mapeamos el entorno de nube adecuado.

Pero, ¿cuáles son los problemas comunes más importantes que venimos observado? Bueno, vemos que las TI y las empresas trabajan a ritmos diferentes y ese es el verdadero motivo por el que necesitan la nube, a la hora de ayudar a las TI a mantenerse. Tomemos como ejemplo a uno de nuestros usuarios. Un gran banco danés quería ser más flexible y utilizar una mezcla de entornos cloud mediante nuestros centros de datos, pero se ralentizaban por la necesidad constante de estandarización del flujo de trabajo del material. Su equipo de TI tenía que realizar 63 pasos manuales (comprobaciones de seguridad y de política de cumplimiento) antes de poder configurar cada carga de trabajo. ¿Te haces una idea del tiempo que se necesita para realizar esos pasos? ¿Y lo que podría conseguir la empresa en ese tiempo en vez de estar esperando a que algo les ayude con su trabajo? Por último, los procesos manuales no aseguran la misma eficacia que un proceso automatizado, aunque solo sea por el factor humano.

Aquí es donde aparecemos nosotros. Como parte de la red de socios cloud de VMware, ayudamos a las empresas a saltarse esos pasos y a ser todo lo ágiles posible utilizando la arquitectura Cross-Cloud de VMware. El enfoque multi-cloud significa que nuestros clientes pueden realizar muchas operaciones en entornos locales, externos o en una mezcla de ambos (nube híbrida), y en diferentes nubes, incluidas AWS y Azure, la que mejor se ajuste a las necesidades de su empresa.

No obstante, el factor que va a determinar que el enfoque multi-cloud sea posible o no es la seguridad. En el caso del banco en Dinamarca, y como descubrieron varios de nuestros socios, la verdadera flexibilidad puede no ser tal si no se cuenta con el apoyo de cierta forma de estandarización. En este punto es donde creo que la solución de virtualización de la red de VMware, NSX, es una de las armas más potentes que componen el arsenal de VMware. Permite la automatización y la estandarización de los servicios de red y seguridad en la nube.

¿Y eso qué significa? Que los equipos de TI pueden reordenar rápidamente la nueva infraestructura mientras sigue siendo segura sabiendo que se cumplen todos los estándares de seguridad y ejecución. En el caso de las demás empresas, los recursos adicionales se pueden reorganizar en el entorno cloud en el momento que más les conviene, de forma que pueden desarrollar nuevos servicios incluso más rápido. Para los usuarios, significa que pueden crear otros departamentos en sus empresas y llevar a cabo nuevos proyectos y productos más rápido, lo que significa, seamos claros, introducir en el mercado nuevas propuestas en menos tiempo. En el caso de banco danés esto se traduce en una reorganización de los nuevos recursos en media hora, en vez de en días, lo que le asegura ser el primero en el mercado a la hora de ofrecer nuevas propuestas a los usuarios.

Trabajamos codo con codo con VMware para integrar Cross-Cloud en los servicios que ofrecemos a nuestros usuarios. Al fin y al cabo, es la mejor forma de garantizar la flexibilidad sin comprometer la seguridad.

¿Quieres más información sobre nuestros socios cloud y trabajar con VMware para disfrutar de la verdadera flexibilidad multi-cloud? Consulta este blog para leer más entradas de nuestros socios y equipo.
