VMware Advances Hybrid Cloud Ambitions

The CloudHealth platform also is now integrated with the Wavefront by VMware cloud analytics and monitoring platform, enabling users of CloudHealth to employ Wavefront metrics to rightsize and optimize applications running on multiple cloud applications as part of their DevOps practices. A future update to the CloudHealth platform will add enhanced amortization as well as support for convertible Reserved Instance (RI) exchanger automation, container cluster visibility and cross-family rightsizing for Amazon EC2, according to the company.


VMware today advanced its hybrid cloud strategy by making a series of updates to existing offerings, including the CloudHealth by VMware software-as-a-service (SaaS) application for managing and optimizing cloud applications, which VMware acquired last summer.
