Azure VMware Solution is an easy way to extend and migrate existing VMware Private Clouds to run them natively on Azure. Azure VMware Solution offers symmetry with on-premises environments, enabling datacenter migrations to be accelerated, and the benefits of the cloud to be realized sooner. This symmetry also extends to the ability for IT teams to leverage the same VMware skills, processes, and investments made in on-premises VMware environments. Coupled with unique Azure hybrid benefits and Extended Security Updates for Windows Server and SQL Server, Azure VMware Solution is one of the fastest and most cost-effective ways to seamlessly migrate and run VMware in the cloud.
