VMware’s Jeremiah Sanders: Agencies Moving to Multicloud Should Make Cloud-Smart Workload Decisions

Jeremiah Sanders, senior transformation strategist at VMware (NYSE: VMW), said government agencies looking to capitalize on the benefits of a multicloud environment should implement a cloud-smart strategy that allows them to adopt a “migrate then modernize” approach when it comes to applications and other workloads.

Sanders noted that such an approach could help agencies mitigate training challenges and reduce costs and the need for staff for migration efforts.

“Once applications are in the cloud, they are easier to modernize,” he wrote.

“Meanwhile, agencies have a secure infrastructure and runtime environment in which virtualized workloads, containers, software as a service and cloud-native apps can be managed seamlessly via a single pane of glass,” he added.

According to Sanders, a multicloud operating model could help agencies balance four goals with regard to apps. These goals are performance, cost, delivery for improved user experience and configuration for security.

He also discussed how VMware’s Cross-Cloud Services portfolio could help agencies build and operate software and an infrastructure with platforms for multicloud, networking, device and security management.
