Hybrid Cloud Extension#

VMware Hybrid Cloud Extension (HCX) is an all-in-one workload mobility tool. It enables migrations and cloud onboarding without the need to retrofit the source infrastructure by building an abstraction layer between on-premises data centers and the cloud. HCX supports migration from vSphere 5.0 and later without introducing application risk and complex migration assessments. With VMware HCX, the on-premises vSphere environment and cloud environments no longer need tightly coupled.
