We are excited to share new enhancements to VMware Tanzu Transformer (formerly VMware Aria Migration). The new migration capabilities will be useful for VMware vSphere customers who want to migrate to AWS or VMware Cloud on AWS while using AI and Machine Learning. We are expanding our multi-cloud capabilities, including adding additional support for AWS and introducing simplified workflows for AWS and VMware Cloud on AWS that will revolutionize the way you discover, classify, and plan migrating applications to the cloud. These enhancements will increase app delivery velocity by making migration planning less fragmented and help you more easily present actual data to get approvals from the various lines of businesses required for successful application migration.
The new VMware Tanzu Transformer name in mentioned in this press release:
“VMware Tanzu Transformer increases (the) success of app migration and modernization initiatives with support for migration assessment and planning to VMware Clouds and public clouds with planning workflows. APIs for 3rd-party integrations are being released in beta.”
Highlights of the new capabilities are listed on the What’s New at VMware Explore 2023 (Enterprise Cloud tab) webpage.
VMware Tanzu Transformer
“Initial availability of AWS cost assessments now available for vSphere VMs for lift and shift migrations
Announcing Tech Preview of AWS Cloud transformation cost assessments for re-platformed or re-architected workloads as PaaS services
Beta of Migration Wave Exports to accelerate migration from on-premises to Cloud Packs or VMware Clouds now available.”
Users of Tanzu Transformer will use the VMware Tanzu Hub GUI for the migration screens. Our new features include AWS support, providing a comprehensive network cost assessment for planning AWS and VMware Cloud on AWS. We’ve also simplified workflows for assessment, making it easier than ever to evaluate your infrastructure and plan your migration strategy using current Cloud Economics calculations. This capability can also look at bandwidth and egress cost analysis for that application migration strategy.
These new features result in faster business velocity, cost savings, better security, and improved performance when moving from the previous workload location to the future cloud location. With these enhancements, Tanzu Transformer is ready to support your journey to the cloud. All this extra information will help users collect the needed information to use with other VMWare tools, such as VMWare HCX, to execute the application migrations to VMware Cloud.
