VMware Hybrid Cloud Extension (HCX) abstracts on-premises versus cloud notions and presents capabilities to Virtual Machines as a continuous hybrid cloud.
VMware HCX enables
- Modernization of Mission-Critical Application Infrastructure with a minimal operational overhead without requiring a retrofit of legacy infrastructure
- New hybrid data center architectures, where premises/private cloud network topologies are efficiently replicated, accelerating application migration, mobility and business continuity, and at scale
- Coherent migration of hundreds of VMs, bi-directionally, in parallel, on a secure high-performance overlay, over an existing WAN, VPN, or Private lines
