Enterprises and MSPs are facing traditional IT challenges supporting cloud-native application development—such as provisioning bottlenecks, performing complex, time-consuming maintenance upgrades, technology fiefdoms, controlling shadow IT, precarious protection and inefficient scaling.
A multitenant multi-cloud platform with containerized environments and a future-ready architecture is ideal, but how do you get there? VMware offers a large set of products such as vCloud and vRealize to give you more control–although the cost and resources needed to make them work are enormous. Public cloud creates an easy-to-use environment that provides high velocity with initially low costs, yet IT does not have control, and users may not be looking at overall costs.
How do you get the best of both worlds? The idea of an on-premises private cloud that is easy to use and maintain is only achieved through web management. This is the foundation for the public cloud experience that Azure offers.
ZeroStack and Microsoft have come together to offer just that. ZeroStack’s intelligent cloud platform is web-managed–delivering the public cloud experience and is also integrated with not only VMware Azure Cloud but with AWS.
Web management helps automate tasks IT hates to do–like upgrades and patches, capacity planning and resource sizing. This helps reduce operational tasks and costs by 90 percent. ZeroStack delivers a fully-integrated stack, from bare metal up to the application blueprints, reducing software costs by 10x.
Lastly, this combination of web management with automated operations and full stack integration drives a key benefit of 10x faster application deployment. IT has control, and can assure governance and help optimize for the best performance and latency; and developers have the easy-to-use agile platform they need.

This integration ensures that developers can start workloads in a public cloud, and then move them on premises to control costs as they go into production. IT Admin and Developers leverage the web browser of their choice to drive the cloud experience. The on-premises, self-healing control software on HCI hardware ensures that they achieve the always-on cloud uptime everyone expects.
