Why It Matters: As cloud platform and infrastructure costs continue to grow over 40% per year and become increasingly complicated with private cloud, containerization, and cloud data growth trends, VMware Aria has created the first holistic hybrid cloud platform designed to manage the cost, operations, and ongoing management of complex enterprise cloud environments.
Top Takeaway: VMware Aria is a transformational management platform allowing cloud managers to bring together asset management, service management, cost management, integration visibility, and workflow automation visibility. VMware Aria’s capability to conduct unit-based economics across the entire umbrella of cloud services along with the relationship analysis and API access that VMware Aria Graph provides is a novel IT management capability that should be immediately considered by any cloud-using enterprise with over $5 million in annual cloud spend, as they will be able to both gain operational productivity advantages and strategic analytic capabilities through this holistic approach to cloud management.
