KeyInfo offers a diverse portfolio of technologies to help you deploy and manage whichever cloud best suits your business needs
VMware offers a number of different toolsets that allows you to write your own code to perform various operations. When deploying an operation that involves a variety of rules, VMware provides a platform in which to perform and operate each step. VMware is perfect for customers looking to modernize their workload and legacy applications aka those operating Brownfield Deployments.
OpenStack technology offers similar toolsets as VMware that allow customers to write their own code, while performing and operating the steps needed to manage the cloud. In contrast to VMware, OpenStack is more suited for Greenfield Deployments or those where applications are new and part of a brand new cloud environment.
