Run a bare metal VMware private cloud in Azure without using nested virtualization or re-platforming your virtual machines. Markus Hain from the Azure engineering team walks through the experience coming from an on-premises VMware vSphere environment, provisioning an Azure VMware Solution private cloud, getting both environments to communicate, and what you can do once the service is up and running. We show you how new VMs in can be created in the Azure portal and managed in either vSphere or Azure and how you can leverage the broad set of Azure cloud services with your hybrid environment once you're up and running. To get started, just search for "vmware" in the Azure portal.
