VMWorld now changed to VMExplore this year with multiple speakers in the keynote there is new announcement in the Multi-Cloud area “VMware Aria & VMware Aria Graph”. VMware Aria is multi-cloud management portfolio that provides a set of end-to-end solutions for managing the cost, performance, configuration, and delivery of infrastructure and cloud-native applications across any cloud. Powering VMware Aria is VMware Aria Graph, a cloud-scale data store technology that captures the complexity of our customers’ multi-cloud environments, including applications, users, configurations, and associated dependencies. The powerful technology underpinning VMware Aria Graph, anchors all core management solutions, namely, VMware Aria Cost powered by CloudHealth, VMware Aria Operations, and VMware Aria Automation. In addition, it powers a set of end-to-end multi-cloud management solutions for cloud governance (VMware Aria Guardrails), cloud migration (VMware Aria Migration), and business insights (VMware Aria Business Insights) at scale, all available via the unified experience and workflows of VMware Aria Hub, (formerly known as Project Ensemble). This new multi-cloud management platform integrates across the entire VMware Aria portfolio.The VMware products and services within the VMware Aria portfolio are:
VMware Aria Cost
VMware Aria Operations
VMware Aria Automation
VMware Aria Graph leverages a distinct architecture to capture many-to-many relationships, scale to hundreds of millions of objects, and update them in near real-time, meeting the requirements of the largest and most stringent enterprise multi-cloud management. VMware Aria’s graph data storage and API services enable seamless integration with third-party solutions such as observability and application performance management tools. Data collected and normalized in VMware Aria Graph from native public cloud, on-premises cloud, VMware tools and third-party tools enriches the operations, automation and cost of customers’ existing VMware vRealize, CloudHealth by VMware and VMware Tanzu Observability products Metrics brings application-aware management to private/hybrid cloud in addition to native public cloud.
