At VMworld 2019 conference Monday in San Francisco, VMware unveiled new and expanded hybrid cloud services to enable customers to simplify their cloud planning and operations process while easily migrating and modernizing their workloads across clouds, data centers, and edge locations.
VMware emphasized that it visions to enable a consistent hybrid cloud platform support across all major public clouds.
The company said that the adoption of multicloud approach in organizations has increased over the years. With VMware Cloud, IT teams and customers will be able to perform all these tasks at less cost and effort while avoiding the risks involved with refactoring the applications.

- Lower cloud cost and compliance: New CloudHealth service is added to control the cost spending on cloud. Users will be able to view the reports of their actual cloud spending, performance and data report.
- Enterprise observability: A new enterprise-wide dashboard UX is integrated, which will make the observations across the infrastructure simple. It will help IT teams to get to the root cause faster and troubleshoot the workloads over any cloud.
- Disaster Recovery and Data Protection: VMware has partnered with Dell EMC to provide customers a greater choice in Disaster Recovery as-a-Service and Data Protection solutions.
- VMware Tanzu: It will help customers to develop modern apps and run Kubernetes consistently. Furthermore, customers will also be able to manage Kubernetes clusters from a new single place.
