When moving from on-premises VMware to the cloud, one of the first things that many clients worry about is incompatibilities between the compute, storage, and networking technologies in the cloud platform versus on-prem. For example:
The good news is that these challenges can addressed with a couple of powerful tools. We start with Google Cloud’s VMware Engine that helps you migrate to the cloud without incurring the cost or complexity of refactoring applications. In other words, you can run and manage workloads on the cloud in the same way you currently run them in your on-premise environment. Your VMware workloads will run in Google Cloud’s reliable and high-performance environment in harmony with your existing on-prem tools, policies, and processes.
VMware Engine makes migration easy because it gives you a full stack of compute, storage, and networking technology that is compatible with your on-prem VMware environment. And because it is based on VMware, you can continue with your current automation strategies and tools. No need to retrain your IT staff—they already have all the skills they need, and the opportunity to learn new ones!
Google Compute migrate tool is very effective in migrating VMware environment to Google cloud with ease of management and automated way. You can migrate your workload by using waves in Compute migrate.
