Find out how you can run your VMware workloads natively in Azure with the new Azure VMware Solution. Matt McSpirit, Microsoft Azure Senior Product Manager, joins Jeremy Chapman to show you how to create a VMware private cloud in Azure, and move your on-premises VMware easily to Azure, while continuing to use your existing investments and skill sets in VMware in the cloud.

For anyone new to this concept, Azure VMware Solution, or AVS, is a fully-managed Azure PaaS service that lets you run your VMWare environment natively in Azure. It is essentially VMware in the cloud with your existing VMware tools and processes.
