Your world is hybrid.
Don’t let VMware uncertainty hold you back

Now that Broadcom has acquired VMware, change is here and you need to be ready. Higher prices, fewer options, and less flexibility likely have your IT team wondering how to reduce risk and plot the right path forward.

“Why am I being forced to buy software I don’t need?”

Concern #1

Broadcom has limited VMware’s solutions into two offerings, VMware vSphere Foundation (VVF), and VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF). VCF forces you into using VMware for networking, storage, and automation so you are fully locked in.


Investigating VMware Alternatives?
“Can I drop Aria Automation (vRA) and still keep vSphere?”

Concern #2

Aria Automation (aka vRealize Automation) is VMware-specific which limits choice. Look at orchestration solutions that automate VMware but also work with alternatives like Nutanix, Microsoft, or other KVM-based options.


Aria in trouble with cloud management?
“Should we just build our orchestration stack from open-source options?”

Concern #3

It’s tempting to build provisioning pipelines and centralized platforms from tools like Ansible and Terraform. But do you and your team have the skills, experience, and ongoing investment to build, extend, and maintain a DIY science project?


Examining ‘build vs. buy’ for platform operations

It’s time to reassess VMware and accelerate what’s next.

VMware is a great hypervisor with a robust ecosystem, but how much control do you want to give Broadcom? Evaluating options is not simple and you shouldn’t do it alone.  Morpheus has helped others in this same situation:

After review, you might maintain footprint, reduce your ELA, and eliminate Aria/vRA so you can re-platform later.

You need to orchestrate VMware but you’re investigating alternate hypervisors and accelerating cloud-native adoption.

You're running away from VMware ASAP and need help from hypervisors, to K8s clusters, to hybrid-cloud orchestration.

Solutions Brief: VMware Risk Mitigation Services

You’re not the first to (v)realize that Morpheus is better.

We’ve helped dozens of enterprises move off of Aria and vRealize Automation to take back control of their workloads, and embrace hybrid-cloud platform operations.

“Our agility and performance with Morpheus surpassed all expectations. Service delivery used to take 80 hours per server end-to-end, but now we can provision 30 servers at a time in minutes, from start to finish ...”

Challenge Icon

12 months wasted on vRA; still took 80 hrs to provision apps due to integration complexity. Needed VMware alternative.

Solution Icon

Morpheus PoC was ready in hours and prod roll-out went quickly across eight data centers with 1000's of apps.

Results Icon

Boosted agility to compete more effectively.  Over $6 million in total savings with 10,000+ instances provisioned.

Wherever you are on your VMware journey we can help.

Let’s grab time to talk about your situation and show you what Morpheus has to offer.  If you think there’s a fit, we can start a PoC or consultative pilot to prove value without software commitment.
