Emergent Software can help you migrate and modernize your infrastructure by seamlessly moving your VMware-based workloads to the Azure cloud with Azure VMware Solution (AVS).

What are the benefits of Azure VMware solution?

Azure VMware solution lets you take full advantage of your existing VMware investments while modernizing your infrastructure with a seamless and efficient migration to Azure. By leveraging AVS, you can continue to use familiar VMware products and tools, including vCenter and vSphere, without additional hardware expenditures or the need to learn new technologies.

Let’s take a deeper look at a few of the advantages of AVS.

Maximize your VMware investments

If you have existing VMware investments, skills, and tools — like VMware vSphere, vCenter, and NSX-T — you can continue to use them while also reaping the benefits of cloud migration.

Improve operational efficiency

AVS lets you modernize your VMware infrastructure with centralized management of VMware workloads in Azure.

Comprehensive security and compliance

You can take advantage of Microsoft’s best-in-class cloud security and utilize Azure tools like Defender for Cloud and Azure Sentinel.

Increased agility and scalability

Easily scale your VMware clusters and hosts in a private cloud as required for your application workload.

Move from CapEx to OpEx

Migrating to AVS lets you shift from capital expenditures to operational expenditures, leading to significant savings and nearly infinite agility.

Quickly extend your data center

You can extend your existing VMware infrastructure in your data center to Azure in days.

Achieve disaster recovery (DR) goals

Leverage AVS as your VMware disaster recovery solution.

Single pane of glass for hybrid cloud

You’ll achieve centralized security when you use AVS and Azure Arc-enabled VMware on-premises.
