VMware’s Cross-Cloud architecture is designed to provide a common operating environment across private and public clouds.

The outcome that it hopes to achieve is reduced complexity and increased control over cloud deployments.

The company first revealed the solution towards the end of August, but it has been working on beefing it up with the latest releases of vSphere, Virtual SAN and vRealise.
