Oracle and VMware help customers move to the cloud

Oracle and VMware have announced their collaboration to help VMware customers run their deployments on Oracle’s cloud without rearchitecting applications or operations. With Oracle, you’re in control.

Migrate VMware to the cloud in an environment you control

Migration of VMware deployments to other cloud environments requires rearchitecture and modification of tools and processes because other clouds manage a fixed VMware environment controlled by the provider. With Oracle Cloud VMware Solution, enterprise systems integrators and managed service providers can extend or migrate their VMware operations to bare metal server clusters while maintaining full control of the environment.

Benefits to our joint customers

What Are the Advantages?

This partnership presents the opportunity for enterprises to easily move applications to the cloud that were previously confined to on-premise environments. Now, enterprises can leverage the security, performance, and on-demand, pay-as-you-go model of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to extend existing on-premise VMware infrastructure and investments without rearchitecting applications or retooling operations.

Oracle is the only hyper-scale cloud offering that empowers enterprises to migrate VMware vSphere environments to the cloud while retaining total control over updates, patches, and validation for all VMware components. Our joint customers can leverage the following benefits:

  • Cloud flexibility: Extend your VMware deployment to a hybrid cloud environment spanning your datacenter and Oracle Cloud, or migrate VMs at your own pace to reduce your own infrastructure
  • Control over your environment: Run the versions of VMware software you want, with full administrative access to the entire stack of VMware components running on bare metal cloud compute instances that you fully control. Maintain your tested and proven on-premise deployment architectures and processes.
  • Control over your schedule: Update and patch on your own schedule. Fully test environment upgrades and deploy them at your own pace.
  • Global reach: Leverage Oracle’s rapidly expanding global footprint to scale worldwide without establishing your own data centers.

Capabilities that support our joint customers

New Product

To deliver these benefits, Oracle is making a new product available in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

  • A software-defined data center (SDDC) solution certified by VMware with vSAN, NSX, and vSphere functionality and the power of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
  • A small initial cluster of bare metal servers, with options to easily expand.
  • Easy integration with Oracle’s other cloud solutions, such as Oracle Autonomous Database, Oracle Exadata, RAC, database as a service (DaaS), VMs, and bare metal compute instances—all running in the same cloud data centers, on the same virtual cloud networks, accessible through the same portal and APIs.
  • A single view across your hybrid data center and cloud operations with VMware vCenter Server. It can run in your data center or in Oracle Cloud.

Because Oracle and VMware are partnering together, Oracle Cloud VMware Solution provides a fully supported, customizable cloud environment for VMware deployments and migrations. This solution enables you to continue using established tools, skills, and processes in a fully supported, high-performance environment with first-class customer service, making migrations quick and easy.

“We run multiple versions of VMware on premises. Oracle will give us the same ability in the cloud, allowing us to meet our corporate IT policies. This is the level of control necessary to move our mission-critical workloads to the cloud. The Oracle solution will enable us to deploy my VMware application fleet in the Oracle Cloud without rearchitecting our applications and rebuilding our well-established processes. Our legacy applications can now run side by side with our managed Oracle databases and Exadata”
