Moving VMware workloads from on-premises environments to the public cloud, often requires replatforming or rearchitecting applications, while introducing cost and IT operational efficiency challenges.

BlueXP lets you centrally provision and manage a hybrid multicloud storage infrastructure that reduces the total cost of ownership for VMware environments by decoupling storage from compute and enabling seamless migration and data protection across the data estate.
