Cloud was supposed to solve a lot of the IT management problems. However the move to hybrid cloud has succeeded in creating new complexities and workloads for IT. But with cloud automation, many of those management workloads can be moved to automated systems with rock solid service level agreements.
Virtualisation business VMware has made a long list of announcements on new products and cloud services at VMworld 2014 in Barcelona. The new solutions are designed to help businesses achieve hybrid cloud solutions faster and in a more managed way, as well as making inroads into a more open source friendly way of working.
