VMware vCenter Server on IBM Cloud offers vSphere as a service. Through automation built by IBM, a fully functioning VMware software-defined data center environment is deployed on top of a minimum of three IBM Cloud bare metal servers. You can provision in hours and scale as needed while gaining full, native access to the entire VMware stack.
If your workloads are in an older data center with limited network uplinks, migration to the IBM Cloud is available through VMware Hybrid Cloud Extension (HCX). If your workloads are in a newer data center with 10 Gbps dual network uplinks, you can use existing VLANs and VMware VMotion for a live migration of running machines.
