About CPBU

VMware is the leading player in on-premises infrastructure. VMware’s Cloud Strategy and the Cloud Platform Business Unit (CPBU) is focused on enabling a Multi-Cloud, Multi-Device World where seamless delivery of cloud services to end customers across a global network of homogeneous clouds and heterogeneous endpoints is a reality.

With VMC on AWS we have delivered, SDDC to the cloud, now we want to deliver innovative cloud service to on-premises infrastructure that leverages our on-premises footprint. With the integration and the focus of Kubernetes with vSphere, we can build an IaaS layer which developers and partners can use to deliver value-added services to the multi-cloud. As part of that effort, we will need to create a new distributed control plane, leveraging and extending open-source technologies that will be used to manage Multiple VCs.

VMware vCenter Hybrid Platform and Services

Hybrid Platform and Services has the mission to stitch VMware’s private cloud, service provider, edge environment, and public cloud together as one Hybrid Platform on top of which we deliver cloud-scale Hybrid Services and provide monitoring/analytics.

VMware is announcing Project Arctic subscription service, which is part of VMware Cloud Universal program, empowering customers to upgrade their existing vSphere infrastructure to the Arctic. The Arctic enables customers to run their virtual machines and containers on their hardware, with VMware Cloud experience.  With this VMware Cloud experience,  customer's  benefit with their vSphere infrastructure unlocked, to leverage all the VMware Cloud services. Arctic reduces customers operational costs, with VMware life cycling and updating the vCenter, and eliminating the time-consuming on-boarding experiences for VMware Cloud services. Arctic simplifies hybrid cloud by making customer's vSphere infrastructure to be hybrid cloud-ready - making it easy for customers to move workloads between their vSphere infrastructure and VMC on AWS or other VCPP Partners.

We are building next-generation platform for VMware to move to Subscription and SaaS where vSphere and SDDC will be managed from a single pane of glass from cloud. This provides customers with cloud-like management and operations of their vCenter and vSphere, taking away the burden of lifecycle management of vCenter, making it highly available with VMware delivered and managed vCenter. As part of the offering, customers benefit from the keyless license management and paying VMware or partners, based on usage. This enables customers to move their virtual machines between on-prem vSphere on Subscription and to Service Providers – in the process of increasing or decreasing their usage of on-prem vSphere and paying based on what they use..
