VMware, Inc. provides virtualization and cloud infrastructure solutions utilized by organizations to help transform the way they build, deliver and consume information technology (IT) resources. The company develops and markets its product and service offerings within three main product groups, including Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC), Hybrid Cloud Computing, and End-User Computing (EUC). The company also allows organizations to leverage synergies and manage IT resources across complex multi-cloud, multi-device environments. Products and Technology SDDC The company’s SDDC architecture consists of four main product categories, such as Compute, Storage and Availability, Network and Security, and Management and Automation. Compute: VMware vSphere is the company’s primary data center platform and provides the fundamental compute layer for VMware environments. Users deploy the VMware vSphere hypervisor when they purchase VMware vSphere or suite versions that include vSphere, such as VMware vCloud Suites and vSphere with operations management (vSOM). Storage and Availability: The company provides various storage and availability products to offer holistic data storage and protection options to all applications running on the vSphere platform. Key hyper-converged infrastructure solutions in this area consist of Virtual SAN-clusters server disks to create radically simple shared storage designed for virtual machines; vSphere Replication that provides way to manage replication; and vCenter Site Recovery Manager, which utilizes vSphere and vSphere Replication to protect applications against site failures and to streamline planned migrations. Network and Security: Network virtualization abstracts physical networks and simplifies the provisioning and consumption of networking resources. The company’s network virtualization solution is VMware NSX. Management and Automation: The company’s management and automation products move beyond core infrastructure to manage and automate overarching IT processes involved in provisioning IT services and resources to users from initial infrastructure deployment to retirement. These IT processes manage virtualized and non-virtualized infrastructure resources and private and public cloud infrastructures, including hybrid cloud services. Products in the management and automation product portfolio include vRealize Operations, which provides performance, capacity and configuration management for virtual or physical infrastructure; vRealize Automation that enables customers to rapidly deploy and provision cloud services; and vRealize Business, which provides transparency and control over the costs and quality of IT services. SDDC Suites The company’s SDDC products are available separately or might be acquired as part of a suite. The VMware vCloud Suite, vSOM, and VMware vRealize suite are packaged solutions for building and managing a complete cloud infrastructure optimized for use with the vSphere platform. VMware vCloud Suite is designed to fulfill the promise of the software-defined data center by pooling industry-standard hardware and running compute and management functions in the data center as software-defined services. vSOM allows users to optimize capacity and monitor the workload performance of their vSphere environments. The VMware vRealize suite is a cloud management platform that extends vCloud Suite capabilities beyond a vSphere private cloud environment to both heterogeneous and hybrid cloud environments. Hybrid Cloud Computing The company enables its customers to utilize off-premise vSphere-based hybrid cloud computing capacity through two offerings, such as VMware vCloud Air Network Service Providers (vCAN) and VMware vCloud Air (vCloud Air). The company’s vCAN program is directed at hosting and cloud computing vendors, enabling organizations to choose between running applications in virtual machines on their own ‘private clouds’ inside their data center or on ‘public clouds’ hosted by a service provider. vCloud Air, built on the foundation of vSphere, is a public cloud operated by the company that includes infrastructure and disaster recove
