VMware HCX update suits enterprise customers

By

A new version of the application mobility product VMware HCX has three features that the company believes will be particularly valuable for enterprise users.

VMware HCX's purpose is to enable data centre and cloud transformations by simplifying the process of connecting, populating and continually optimising application placement in modern cloud infrastructures, the company said.

The latest version includes three new features.

VMware HCX Enterprise supports workload migrations from non-vSphere systems (initially KVM and Hyper-V), making it easier to re-platform applications.

VMware HCX vMotion allows hundreds of live workloads to be migrated in bulk, with the ability to schedule the completion of specific VM migrations for a time that allows cutover with the minimum business risk.

VMware HCX Enterprise works with VMware Site Recovery Manager for secure and efficient backup and recovery of critical workloads, optimising bandwidth, simplifying IP address management, and eliminating incompatibility issues across networks and storage.

"In its first two years of availability, VMware HCX has become an integral part of VMware Cloud on AWS and VMware NSX offerings for customers migrating VMware workloads," said VMware senior vice president and hybrid cloud services business unit Allwyn Sequeira.

"By building on that success and extending the VMware HCX platform to enable customers to fully operationalise hybrid and multi-clouds with faster migrations of VMware and non-VMware applications and enable airtight disaster recovery strategies, we’ve broadened both the use cases and the value of VMware HCX for new and existing customers."

The new version of VMware HCX Enterprise is available now.
