Don&#rsquo;t you love it when a good thing just gets even better? Like when your smartphone can double as your SLR camera or your thermostat can also water the plants. We at VMware definitely do and recently worked our magic on our VMware Horizon® Cloud Service™.

Earlier this year, we announced the Horizon Cloud service. Horizon Cloud is a software service from VMware that allows customers to easily and cost-effectively deploy cloud-hosted or on-premises virtual desktops and apps to any device, anywhere. Now, as more and more organizations adopt a multi-cloud strategy to leverage &#rsquo;best-fit&#rdquo; cloud capabilities, avoid cloud vulnerability and optimize cost, they face new challenges of moving between clouds and inefficiencies of operating multiple solutions. Wouldn&#rsquo;t it be nice to have a desktop virtualization service that could also easily span clouds and enable a mix and match of public and private clouds based on business needs?

The Horizon Cloud team has been working hard on this, and we are delighted to offer a solution with Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure! Each is great separately, but together they are amazing. Horizon Cloud comes from the leader in desktop and app virtualization. Microsoft Azure is the fastest growing public cloud provider today, available in 38 regions across the globe, not to mention the natural choice for organizations relying on Windows-based applications and enterprise applications like Microsoft Office 365.

Tailored to industry: A sector-based approach

 Allgemein, Cloud, Knowledge Base, Updates, VMware, VMware Partner, VMware Virtual Infrastructure, vSphere  Kommentare deaktiviert für Tailored to industry: A sector-based approach
Aug 102017
 

Guest blog by Laurent Allard, Vice-Chairman at OVH. He talks about the company&#rsquo;s partnership with VMware and how being one of our key cloud providers is helping it build dedicated solutions tailored to meet industry compliance and regulations, such as OVH Healthcare.

Customers are living in a multi-cloud world; they&#rsquo;re relying on different types of cloud technologies, as well as their own dedicated servers to ensure they adapt to the growing demands of their business.

Our agenda is very much client driven. We adapt our solution development to the reactions we get from customers. Each customer has a different profile and they all have different starting points on their journeys to the cloud, or what they want to achieve in their business.

How to set us apart from rivals in the cloud space? Well, we have a clear strategic view that &#lsquo;one size fits all&#rsquo; for cloud just doesn&#rsquo;t work. We need hosted, private and public clouds. After all, you can&#rsquo;t paint a painting with a single colour. Our view is to be a cloud service provider for all companies, across industries and of all sizes. We don&#rsquo;t need to be a specialist in a vertical market – we are industry agnostic – but we are fully aligned, knowledgeable and skilled in industry trends and compliance. We adapt to make our services right for a customer. That&#rsquo;s what our expertise is – and it&#rsquo;s leveraged with our partnership with VMware.

We have a joint alignment with VMware, sharing common interests and goals through an outstanding relationship. VMware has been a key driver in us becoming a successful global provider of private cloud solutions since 2010 – and we continue to work with them as a trusted cloud service provider partner.

It&#rsquo;s such a close partnership that, the same day VMware announces a new solution, we&#rsquo;re ready to support it. And it works both ways. We listen to our customers&#rsquo; needs; they want to benefit from VMware&#rsquo;s stack without needing the expertise in-house to exploit it. They&#rsquo;re looking for a very dynamic type of provisioning with almost the same attributes as the public cloud – but from a dedicated, private-hosted VMware environment. They want the security, scalability and agility of a VMware solution but don&#rsquo;t want to focus on the technology – they want to focus on growing their business.

It&#rsquo;s in industrialising our innovative solutions that our partnership with VMware continues to prosper, so we&#rsquo;ve started to find ways in which we can help customers with sector-specific solutions. When you grow by 30% year on year, you can&#rsquo;t stay with the same long-term vision to stay up to date. You need to innovate, to be agile, and be able to react swiftly and stay ahead. And that is possible through VMware.

One of our biggest success stories in that field has been with OVH Healthcare. With OVH Healthcare, we host the information systems of healthcare organisations in an environment that meets even the most demanding industry regulations and compliance laws. We then provide an expert team of data hosting and medical specialists to help the organisation choose the private cloud environment best befitting of their needs. As ever, OVH has worked alongside VMware to create the different environments, but all are based on vCenter, vSphere, NSX and vRealize Operations. Customers can create their VMs from the vSphere interface and can configure access rules to their networks through NSX while using vRealize Operations to control and manage their infrastructure.

We actually developed the solution in line with French start-up Betterise Health Tech. The company was looking for a solution to support its mobile applications for diabetic patients, but when it wanted to extend its product range, offering mobile apps for diabetic patients, for example, it was faced with a legal constraint – it needed a licensed HDS host. It wanted to make use of our private cloud with VMware, so we designed OVH Healthcare and obtained HDS accreditation in November 2016. As French regulations are among the most protective of personal data, they often serve as a model in Europe. This shows just how secure our solution with VMware must be.

This is just one example. We&#rsquo;re looking forward to continuing on our journey with VMware to help support other organisations achieve the flexibility of the cloud with solutions dedicated to meeting the specific requirements of their sectors.

For us, that includes, but isn&#rsquo;t limited to: helping clients to invest in cloud services without worrying about being locked-in, managing sovereignty needs, scaling within private cloud, and managing the mix between legacy and new cloud services. If we can do all that for them, they can focus on innovating and driving the business forward; safe in the knowledge we&#rsquo;re providing the foundation to make it happen.

En VMware siempre intentamos ofrecer a nuestros usuarios tantas opciones y flexibilidad como sea posible en su entorno de TI.

Nuestro último compromiso con la causa es VMware Horizon Cloud en Microsoft Azure, que ayuda a nuestros usuarios a crear aplicaciones y escritorios virtuales VMware que incrementan la presencia mundial de Microsoft Azure en la empresa, presente ya en 38 regiones.

Al sumarle a uno de los proveedores de Infraestructura como Servicio (IaaS) que crece más rápido la aplicación líder del sector y la oferta de servicios cloud de escritorio, a nuestros usuarios se les ofrece varias opciones de infraestructura con la flexibilidad necesaria para moverse por diferentes plataformas, lo que supone la base de nuestra estrategia cross-cloud.

Pero, ¿qué significa?

Ahora los usuarios pueden conectar Azure IaaS a Horizon Cloud con el objetivo de generar y gestionar las aplicaciones y los escritorios virtuales Horizon. Es perfecto para empresas suscritas a Azure, pero también para clientes que buscan la flexibilidad que permite poder cambiar las opciones de desarrollo de otros servicios en la nube pública en caso de que cambie su uso, haya cambios en el personal o el entorno económico sea diferente, gracias al plano de control de nube única que permite utilizar Horizon Cloud. La integración de VMware y Microsoft también ayuda a nuestros usuarios a que su adaptación a Windows 10 sea más rápida.

Como siempre, nuestras soluciones ofrecen un abanico de posibilidades a los usuarios. De hecho, sólo Horizon Cloud ofrece esta flexibilidad para aplicaciones y escritorios virtuales. Por ejemplo, puede proporcionar una infraestructura de nube pública gestionada a aquellas empresas que quieren externalizar la gestión de la infraestructura a la nube para una experiencia de desktop as a service, o puede permitir la gestión de su propia infraestructura interna con aplicaciones de infraestructura hiperconvergente a aquellas empresas que quieren un mayor control sobre su infraestructura de escritorio virtual, particularmente para las que requieren una gran seguridad o resultados.

VMware sigue innovando y dando respuesta a las necesidades de nuestros clientes.

Esperamos que VMware Horizon Cloud para Microsoft Azure está en el mercado a partir del segundo semestre de 2017.

Aug 072017
 

At VMware, we&#rsquo;ve always been intent on giving our customers as many options and as much flexibility as possible when it comes to their IT environment.

Our latest commitment to that cause, is delivering VMware Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure, helping our customers to bring VMware virtual desktops and applications to the increasing global presence of Microsoft Azure in the enterprise, which is now available in 38 regions globally.

Bringing together one of the fastest growing Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) providers with the industry&#rsquo;s leading app and desktop cloud services offering gives our customers several infrastructure options with the flexibility to move between different platforms – all part of our cross-cloud strategy.

But what does this all mean?
Well, customers can now connect Azure IaaS to Horizon Cloud to deliver and manage Horizon virtual desktops and applications. This is ideal for organisations with an Azure subscription, but also for customers that want the flexibility to switch their deployment options from other public cloud services if use cases change, employees move or economics shift – thanks to Horizon Cloud&#rsquo;s ability to use a single cloud control plane. The VMware and Microsoft integration can also help our customers accelerate their move to Windows 10.

As ever, our solutions provide customers with options. In fact, only Horizon Cloud offers this flexible scale-out of virtual desktops and applications. For example, it can offer fully managed public cloud infrastructure for those companies looking to outsource management of infrastructure to the cloud for a desktop-as-a-service experience, or it can offer bring your own on-premises infrastructure with Hyper-converged Infrastructure appliances for those organisations that want greater control over their virtual desktop infrastructure – particularly those with tight security or performance requirements.

VMware continues to innovate and cater for all of our customers&#rsquo; needs.

We expect VMware Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure to be available in the second half of 2017.

A medida para la industria: un enfoque centrado en el sector

Laurent Allard, Vicepresidente de OVH, habla sobre su colaboración con VMware y de cómo ser uno de nuestros proveedores cloud clave le ayuda a crear soluciones específicas a medida para cumplir con regulaciones del sector tales como OVH Healthcare.

Los usuarios están inmersos en un mundo multi-cloud; partiendo de diferentes tipos de tecnologí­as cloud, además de sus propios servicios especí­ficos, se aseguran la adaptación a las crecientes demandas de su actividad empresarial.

Nuestra agenda depende mucho de los clientes, ya que adaptamos nuestro desarrollo de soluciones a las reacciones que obtenemos de nuestros usuarios. Cada usuario tiene un perfil diferente y su punto de partida en este viaje por la nube, así como su meta empresarial, es distinto.

¿Cómo nos diferenciamos de nuestros competidores en la nube? Bueno, tenemos un punto de vista claramente estratégico que básicamente consiste en desterrar, en el caso de la nube, la validez de la idea de “talla única”. Necesitamos nubes alojadas, privadas y públicas. Al fin y al cabo no se puede pintar un cuadro con un solo color. Nuestro enfoque consiste en proveer servicios en la nube a todas las empresas, de todos los sectores y de todos los tamaños. No necesitamos estar especializados en mercado vertical, no estamos especializados en un sector único, pero estamos totalmente alineados, tenemos el conocimiento y las aptitudes necesarias para dar respuesta a las tendencias y necesidades del mismo. Nos adaptamos con el objetivo de prestar los servicios adecuados para cada usuario. Ese es nuestro punto fuerte, que además cuenta con el respaldo que le proporciona nuestra colaboración con VMware.

Estamos alineados con VMware, compartimos metas e intereses comunes canalizados mediante una relación excelente. VMware ha sido clave a la hora de convertirnos en proveedor mundial de éxito de soluciones de nube privada desde 2010, y seguimos trabajando con ellos como socio de confianza proveedor de servicios cloud.

Es una relación tan estrecha que, el mismo dí­a que VMware anuncia una nueva solución, nosotros ya estamos preparados para ponerla en marcha. Es una ví­a de doble sentido. Escuchamos las necesidades de nuestros usuarios; ellos quieren obtener el máximo beneficio de la oferta de VMware sin necesitar experiencia interna para explotarla. Buscan un tipo muy dinámico de suministro con casi las mismas características que la nube pública, pero desde un entorno VMware privado y a medida. Quieren la seguridad, escalabilidad y flexibilidad de una solución VMware pero sin tener que preocuparse por la tecnologí­a, quieren centrarse en el crecimiento de su actividad empresarial.

Nuestra colaboración con VMware sigue siendo próspera en la industrialización de nuestras soluciones innovadoras, así­ que hemos empezado a buscar ví­as para ayudar a nuestros usuarios con las soluciones especí­ficas del sector. Cuando se crece a un ritmo anual del 30%, no se puede mantener la misma visión a largo plazo si se quiere estar actualizado. Hay que innovar, ser flexible, capaz de reaccionar con rapidez y mantenerse a la cabeza. VMware lo hace posible.

Una de nuestras historias de éxito más relevante en ese campo es OVH Healthcare. Con OVH Healthcare, alojamos los sistemas de información de las organizaciones sanitarias en un entorno que cumpl­ía las regulaciones y leyes más exigentes del sector. Proporcionamos un equipo experto de alojamiento de datos y especialistas médicos para ayudar a la organización a elegir el entorno de nube privado que mejor se ajustase a sus necesidades. Como siempre, OVH trabajó con VMware para crear los diferentes entornos, todos ellos basados en vCenter, vSphere, NSX y vRealize Operations. Los usuarios pueden crear sus VM desde la interfaz vSphere y pueden configurar normas de acceso a sus redes a través de NSX mientras utilizan vRealize Operations para controlar y gestionar su infraestructura.

De hecho desarrollamos la solución en lí­nea con la start-up francesa Betterise Health Tech. La empresa estaba buscando una solución que respaldase sus aplicaciones móviles para pacientes con diabetes, pero cuando quiso ampliar su gama de productos, ofreciendo aplicaciones móviles para pacientes con diabetes, por ejemplo, se encontró con una restricción jurídica: necesitaba un sistema con acreditación HDS. Quería utilizar nuestra nube privada con VMware, así­ que diseñamos OVH Healthcare y obtuvo la acreditación HDS en noviembre de 2016. Las regulaciones francesas son de las más protectoras con los datos personales, por lo que suelen servir de modelo para Europa. Este caso refleja lo segura que es nuestra solución VMware.

Y esto es solo un ejemplo. Esperamos seguir nuestro viaje con VMware para ayudar a otras empresas a lograr la flexibilidad de la nube con soluciones a medida que cumplan los requisitos específicos de sus sectores.

Para nosotros esto significa, sin que constituya limitación: ayudar a los clientes a invertir en servicios en la nube evitando que tengan que preocuparse por quedarse bloqueados, gestionar las necesidades de autonomía y escalada de la nube privada, y gestionar la mezcla entre los recursos existentes y los nuevos servicios en la nube. Si logramos hacer todo eso por ellos, ellos pueden centrarse en la innovación y en el desarrollo de su actividad empresarial. Nuestro conocimiento nos permite hacerlo posible.

Tailored to industry: A sector-based approach

Jul 272017
 

Laurent Allard, Vice-Chairman at OVH, talks about the company&#rsquo;s partnership with VMware and how being one of our key cloud providers is helping it build dedicated solutions tailored to meet industry compliance and regulations, such as OVH Healthcare.

Customers are living in a multi-cloud world; they&#rsquo;re relying on different types of cloud technologies, as well as their own dedicated servers to ensure they adapt to the growing demands of their business.

Our agenda is very much client driven. We adapt our solution development to the reactions we get from customers. Each customer has a different profile and they all have different starting points on their journeys to the cloud, or what they want to achieve in their business.

How to set us apart from rivals in the cloud space? Well, we have a clear strategic view that &#lsquo;one size fits all&#rsquo; for cloud just doesn&#rsquo;t work. We need hosted, private and public clouds. After all, you can&#rsquo;t paint a painting with a single colour. Our view is to be a cloud service provider for all companies, across industries and of all sizes. We don&#rsquo;t need to be a specialist in a vertical market – we are industry agnostic – but we are fully aligned, knowledgeable and skilled in industry trends and compliance. We adapt to make our services right for a customer. That&#rsquo;s what our expertise is – and it&#rsquo;s leveraged with our partnership with VMware.

We have a joint alignment with VMware, sharing common interests and goals through an outstanding relationship. VMware has been a key driver in us becoming a successful global provider of private cloud solutions since 2010 – and we continue to work with them as a trusted cloud service provider partner.

It&#rsquo;s such a close partnership that, the same day VMware announces a new solution, we&#rsquo;re ready to support it. And it works both ways. We listen to our customers&#rsquo; needs; they want to benefit from VMware&#rsquo;s stack without needing the expertise in-house to exploit it. They&#rsquo;re looking for a very dynamic type of provisioning with almost the same attributes as the public cloud – but from a dedicated, private-hosted VMware environment. They want the security, scalability and agility of a VMware solution but don&#rsquo;t want to focus on the technology – they want to focus on growing their business.

It&#rsquo;s in industrialising our innovative solutions that our partnership with VMware continues to prosper, so we&#rsquo;ve started to find ways in which we can help customers with sector-specific solutions. When you grow by 30% year on year, you can&#rsquo;t stay with the same long-term vision to stay up to date. You need to innovate, to be agile, and be able to react swiftly and stay ahead. And that is possible through VMware.

One of our biggest success stories in that field has been with OVH Healthcare. With OVH Healthcare, we host the information systems of healthcare organisations in an environment that meets even the most demanding industry regulations and compliance laws. We then provide an expert team of data hosting and medical specialists to help the organisation choose the private cloud environment best befitting of their needs. As ever, OVH has worked alongside VMware to create the different environments, but all are based on vCenter, vSphere, NSX and vRealize Operations. Customers can create their VMs from the vSphere interface and can configure access rules to their networks through NSX while using vRealize Operations to control and manage their infrastructure.

We actually developed the solution in line with French start-up Betterise Health Tech. The company was looking for a solution to support its mobile applications for diabetic patients, but when it wanted to extend its product range, offering mobile apps for diabetic patients, for example, it was faced with a legal constraint – it needed a licensed HDS host. It wanted to make use of our private cloud with VMware, so we designed OVH Healthcare and obtained HDS accreditation in November 2016. As French regulations are among the most protective of personal data, they often serve as a model in Europe. This shows just how secure our solution with VMware must be.

This is just one example. We&#rsquo;re looking forward to continuing on our journey with VMware to help support other organisations achieve the flexibility of the cloud with solutions dedicated to meeting the specific requirements of their sectors.

For us, that includes, but isn&#rsquo;t limited to: helping clients to invest in cloud services without worrying about being locked-in, managing sovereignty needs, scaling within private cloud, and managing the mix between legacy and new cloud services. If we can do all that for them, they can focus on innovating and driving the business forward; safe in the knowledge we&#rsquo;re providing the foundation to make it happen.

This blog is part of a broader series we&#rsquo;re running over the next couple of weeks, with our vCAN partners discussing their work supporting European businesses as they benefit from a cloud environment best suited to their needs.

VMware Horizon Cloud comes to Microsoft Azure

Jul 242017
 

At VMware, we&#rsquo;ve always been intent on giving our customers as many options and as much flexibility as possible when it comes to their IT environment.

Our latest commitment to that cause, is delivering VMware Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure, helping our customers to bring VMware virtual desktops and applications to the increasing global presence of Microsoft Azure in the enterprise, which is now available in 38 regions globally.

Bringing together one of the fastest growing Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) providers with the industry&#rsquo;s leading app and desktop cloud services offering gives our customers several infrastructure options with the flexibility to move between different platforms – all part of our cross-cloud strategy.

But what does this all mean?

Well, customers can now connect Azure IaaS to Horizon Cloud to deliver and manage Horizon virtual desktops and applications. This is ideal for organisations with an Azure subscription, but also for customers that want the flexibility to switch their deployment options from other public cloud services if use cases change, employees move or economics shift – thanks to Horizon Cloud&#rsquo;s ability to use a single cloud control plane. The VMware and Microsoft integration can also help our customers accelerate their move to Windows 10.

As ever, our solutions provide customers with options. In fact, only Horizon Cloud offers this flexible scale-out of virtual desktops and applications. For example, it can offer fully managed public cloud infrastructure for those companies looking to outsource management of infrastructure to the cloud for a desktop-as-a-service experience, or it can offer bring your own on-premises infrastructure with Hyper-converged Infrastructure appliances for those organisations that want greater control over their virtual desktop infrastructure – particularly those with tight security or performance requirements.

VMware continues to innovate and cater for all of our customers&#rsquo; needs.

We expect VMware Horizon Cloud on Microsoft Azure to be available in the second half of 2017.

Il devient de plus en plus nécessaire de faire évoluer ses compétences orientées Administration Systéme & Gestion d&#rsquo;infrastructure vers des compétences DevOps, notamment orienté «infrastructure as a code». La transition commence par la motivation!

Et pour accompagner cette motivation, rien de tel qu&#rsquo;analyser un projet concret. Vincent Méoc, Ingénieur Avant-vente VMware, vous fait partager son projet de développement de l&#rsquo;application Tito (Time Traffic Overview), un exemple simple qu&#rsquo;il portera ensuite sur différentes technologies de Cloud et de Containers.

Comment démarrer un projet de développement, comment trouver des ressources pour se former, combien de temps cela prend-il? Pourquoi ce n&#rsquo;est pas si compliqué? Et quel est le lien (important) avec l&#rsquo;infrastructure?
