This solution is really exciting, as this is designed built and supported by Microsoft and endorsed by VMware. We’re in tough times, and it is great to see that large vendors such as Microsoft and VMware come to the party to provide combined solutions that will benefit the customers, and now can seamlessly extend or completely migrate their existing on premises VMware workloads to Azure without the requirements for re architecting their applications. This will allow clients to then benefit workloads and services provided by Azure and consume directly on a VMware platform.

The partnership between Microsoft and VMware allowing customers currently that have VMware on their private datacenters, to have the same experience in Azure. So how is this achieved, this allows VMware to utilize a solution known as VMware Cloud Foundation Which will run natively on Azure’s compute and storage. Azure VMware Solution is VMware Cloud Verified, basically it allows customers to have confidence to use VMware capabilities on that platform that has been vetted by VMware.

The technologies that will be used on Azure VMware Solutions are VMware vSphere, HCX, NSX-T & vSAN. These products are the foundation for a software defined datacenter for customers worldwide. For Azure VMware Solution it has limited availability to certain areas in the world. Availability in the US East and West Europe regions are live and hopefully we will get these services down in South Africa soon in the near future, as we do have the Azure datacenters locally.

How to run native VMware workloads in Azure 

VMware Education

As being part of the VMware Certified Instructor Community, I have a very committed to encourage individuals to attend VMware Training as this is a key part of gaining new skills and keep yourself relevant in todays ever changing IT landscape. The traditional training courses that was provide by VMware Education has always been informative.

The courses have been captivating for beginners as well as experienced individuals. VMware has acquired many organisations and thus meaning that the list of products in their stable has grown immensely, which mean VMware partners have let more to sell to the industry. Engineers will have to up-skill their selves as they will need to manage these new technologies.

With that said they way froward is get some good training and get your self familiar with these new and great products.

So VMware Education has a lot of ways to deliver training:

Classroom – Instructor-Led Training – This is my all time favourite as I get to meet the trainer in person and have a room of like-minded individuals. This allows for me to learn from others in the industry and get to network, as well as have an instructor at your finger tips to assist you.

Live Online – In this method, you will connect to a training session with an instructor and other delegates to have the course presented to you over the internet. No need to travel to the training venue, but rather jump online and continue with the training.

Self-Paced – These are pre-recorded training material that you watch at your own pace and get to cover the content and labs.

I guess that there are different ways to approach the training and there are several ways to consume the training. As always the benefit is that which ever way to get the training done, you are improving yourself as an individual.
