Now Streaming: April Multi-Cloud Briefing

Join VMware CEO Raghu Raghuram and business leaders as they discuss navigating economic headwinds with a cloud-smart approach.

Cloud Chaos Slows Innovation and Adds Risk

Multi-cloud is the most common IT architecture today – with 87% of enterprises using 2 or more clouds1. Yet most IT organizations are in a state of cloud chaos, with isolated processes for building, operating, securing, and accessing applications. For operators applying policies or developers building applications, it is slow, inconsistent, and introduces security gaps.

Get to Cloud Smart with Cross-Cloud Services

VMware Cross-Cloud services give you standardized ways to build, operate, access, and secure your applications on any cloud. This is what we call cloud smart – where you can choose the best cloud for every application, accelerating the innovation of your organization.

Conquer Cloud Chaos

Cloud chaos is slowing innovation, driving up cost, and weakening enterprise security postures.


  • 57% find cloud operations to be more complex than on-prem.
  • 89% are looking for a better way to manage unpredictable cloud costs3.
  • This demands a new approach – one where you can use the best of breed services from each cloud without adding extra complexity.


Standardize Isolated Cloud Operations

VMware Cross-Cloud services introduces standardization at multiple layers of abstraction, so you have a single way to build, operate, access, and secure apps on any cloud. Goodbye cloud chaos - and hello faster operations, developer velocity, and the agility of a cloud smart approach.   


  • Every cloud has its own unique set of operational workstreams – observability, security, cost control, deployment automation, developer self-service, end-user access, and more.   
  • This creates a state of cloud chaos, where IT teams are slowed down by the operational overhead of their multi-cloud environment.   
  • Realize a quicker time to market, lower cost, and more consistent security with VMware Cross-Cloud Services.
