VMware HCX on IBM Cloud

HCX ™ on IBM Cloud unlocks the cloud for on-premise vSphere environments, where customers can build an abstraction layer between their on-premise data center and the IBM Cloud. Once tethered together, networks can be stretched securely across the HCX hybrid interconnect enabling seamless mobility of VMs. HCX enables hybrid capabilities in vCenter so that workloads can be migrated and protected to and from the cloud.

HCX leverages vSphere Replication to provide robust replication capabilities at the hypervisor layer. When this is coupled with HCX’s ability to stretch layer-2 networks, no intrusion at the OS or application layers are required. This allows virtual machines to be easily migrated to and from the cloud without any change.
