Azure VMware Solution

Seamlessly move VMware-based workloads to the Cloud

Not all on-premise workloads are a good fit for the core Azure infrastructure. You may have applications and workloads that rely on your VMware infrastructure or that run on purpose-built hardware. Now, with the new evolution of Microsoft’s Azure VMware Solution (AVS) you can run your VMware workloads natively on Azure.

Integrate your VMware environment with Azure

  • Extend or completely migrate your existing on-premises VMware applications to Azure without the cost, effort or risk of re-architecting applications or retooling operations
  • Modernise your applications with Azure native services
  • Get speed, scale and high availability of the Azure global infrastructure
  • Leverage your existing investments in VMware skills and tools
  • Accelerate your move to the cloud with familiar VMware technology
  • Ensure business continuity and minimise risk with access to Azure’s high availability, disaster recovery and backup services
  • Consolidate your datacenter and get on-demand access to additional capacity
  • Innovate at your own pace with Azure services across security, data, AI and unified management capabilities
  • Take advantage of Azure as the best cloud for your Microsoft Windows and SQL Server workloads, and reduce IT costs
  • Azure VMware Solution is VMware Cloud Verified
