One of the whitepapers I have been working on has just been published. I have been working on this whitepaper with two of my fellow colleagues, Duncan Epping and Hany Michael. I am extremely excited by the publication of this whitepaper, as it is my first official whitepaper. It has been an interesting challenge and an exciting one to work with Duncan again (first time since the cloud practice days), and to also work with Hany.
This whitepaper talks about how to implement a hybrid cloud strategy, and the concepts needed to do this. It covers VMware vCloud Air, VMware NSX and VMware vRealize Automation, and how they fit together to provide you with a hybrid cloud. It also has a really cool diagram produced by Hany.
This was such a great project to work on, and was a joint collaboration between the Office of the CTO, the vCloud Air Business Unit, and the CTO ambassadors program.
This white paper demonstrates how to successfully implement a hybrid cloud strategy and aims to provide abetter understanding of its use case and its potential. The scenario described in this white paper is based on asuccessful real-world customer implementation by VMware employees who are part of CTO Ambassador group.
The VMware Office of the CTO runs the CTO Ambassador program. The CTO Ambassadors are members of asmall group of our most experienced and talented customer-facing, individual contributor technologists. They arepre-sales systems engineers (SEs), technical account managers (TAMs), professional services (PSO) consultants,architects and global support services engineers. The ambassadors help to ensure a tight collaboration betweenR&D and our customers so that we can address current customer issues and future needs as effectively as possible
