Features

Seamlessly integrate your VMware environment with Azure
Easily move your VMware workloads to Azure and increase your productivity with elasticity, scale, and fast provisioning cycles. View and create vSphere VMs in the Azure portal via API calls or CLI, automate deployments, and enable single sign-on. Enhance your workloads with the full range of Azure compute, monitor, backup, database, IoT, and AI services.

Use your existing VMware investments with Azure
Get on-demand access to additional capacity when you consolidate, retire or expand existing datacentres. Move to Azure seamlessly using VMware’s HCX technology and continue to manage your environment using the same VMware tools you already know: vSphere Client, NSX-T, Power CLI or any popular DevOps toolchain. Ensure operational continuity when redeploying your vSphere-based applications to Azure and avoid the complexity of application refactoring.

Deploy on dedicated cloud infrastructure in Azure
Rely on the operating platform and backend infrastructure of Azure to run VMware vSphere, vSAN and NSX-T platforms natively and at scale. Eliminate the hassles of procuring, deploying, and managing hardware infrastructure by running your workloads on fully managed, single tenant, bare-metal Azure infrastructure. Choose from a variety of connectivity options, including Azure ExpressRoute and encrypt your data at rest and in transit with protected, high-speed, low-latency connectivity.

Microsoft workloads are best on Azure
Azure is the cloud of choice for Windows Server and SQL Server. Take advantage of intelligent security, seamless hybrid capabilities and unique cost savings options on Azure. Join customers of all sizes who trust Azure for their Windows Server and SQL Server workloads. A recent Microsoft study found that enterprise customers considering cloud migration for Windows Server were 30 percent more likely to choose Azure.
