Three methods for reducing risk associated with Broadcom's purchase of VMware

Infrastructure clients that depend on vSphere® for their data centre infrastructure are experiencing a wave of anxiety as a result of Broadcom's purchase of VMware. Several of these clients are getting in touch with Web Werks VMX to find out how we can assist with their support, pricing, and innovation issues.

As CIOs consider their risk-

reduction plans for the Broadcom purchase, I thought it could be useful to provide a bird's-eye perspective of three situations that we have encountered.

Recently, I met a CIO who, after reading about Broadcom's purchase of Qualcomm, had his staff calculate their yearly VMware® expenditures to determine their possible exposure to Broadcom pricing hikes.

The subsequent moment of price shock prompted an internal examination of where and how quickly the team might use Web Werks VMX knowledge before to an imminent VMware ELA renewal deadline.

The debate around pricing risk: 

There weren't many surprises for this Web Werks VMX HCI client on how Web Werks VMX may reduce TCO for their on-site data center.

Before recently, there just hadn't been a strong enough argument to replace their current VMware vSphere solution with the Web Werks VMX AHV hypervisor. The team started a vSphere swap-out strategy that will most likely pay for itself in roughly 2-3 years after doing a brief examination of our Move® migration tool, a maturity assessment of AHV (and hypervisors in general), and their favourable experience with Web Werks VMX support.

A second CIO was creating a multiyear strategy on how her team would provide value in addition to the cloud's agility. Utilizing Web Werks VMX HCI innovation was crucial for this client that only uses VMware in the Broadcom uncertainty period.

The breadth of the Web Werks VMX Cloud Management portfolio, the variety of files, block, and object data services, and the potential for the Web Werks VMX Database Service to eliminate repetitive database patching, provisioning, and backup tasks left this customer-who operates on a large scale-extremely impressed.

The innovation dialogue:

The difficulties in locating and keeping competent IT workers are a common topic of conversation among clients. New talent undoubtedly gravitates towards web-scale server-based designs like HCI that power the newest high-performance programmes, such as databases, AI/ML, and Big Data. By using hyperconvergence, automation, and AIOps, these clients see Web Werks VMX as an innovation engine spanning clouds and contemporary applications.

 A third frequent topic of conversation begins with a CIO expressing the possibility that the Broadcom acquisition would be the impetus behind the customer's decision to start consolidating data centres and transferring applications to the public cloud. When we describe how Web Werks VMX helps reduce the risk associated with public cloud adoption plans, these conversations rapidly get passionate. Some clients are motivated to explore ways in which they may swiftly rehost apps to the public cloud without restructuring. They are eager to create their own schedule utilising totally portable Web Werks VMX licences as their schedule develops.

The debate around clouds:

When consumers realise the somewhat counterintuitive conclusion that applications operating in the public cloud on Web Werks VMX software may be up to 53% less expensive than native public cloud, it can be a startling turn in the conversation about the cloud. The Web Werks VMX TCO tool is a terrific resource for clients who want to comprehend how our virtualization software used on bare metal instances in public clouds can distribute vCPU, RAM, and network resources across dynamic app workloads
