Only Oracle Cloud VMware Solution provides you with exactly the same experience as running VMware on-premises. And when they say “the same”, they really mean literally the same – so much so that if customers have on-premises VMware and Oracle Cloud VMware, they can manage it through the same VMware vCenter interface – VMware sees it as the same thing.
This also makes lifting-and-shifting VMware workloads from on-premises to cloud easy because the cloud environment is exactly the same. There’s no refactoring of applications or reconfiguration of the environment necessary to get the workload into the cloud.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure – on which Oracle VMware Cloud Solution is built – has layer 2 networking support built in throughout, which is what VMware requires to run natively.
