VMware vRealize Suite is a software product suite designed to enable IT professionals to create and manage hybrid clouds.

The vRealize Suite bundles existing management software, including IT Business Management Suite, vCloud Automation Center (vCAC), vCenter Operations Management Suite and vCenter LogInsight. It also extends VMware’s existing vCloud Suite to manage KVM and Hyper-V virtual machines as well as workloads hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and OpenStack.

VMware vRealize Suite allows customers to deploy and manage virtual machines on multiple hypervisors and cloud platforms from a single management console. However, it does not allow customers the same flexibility for migrating virtual machines from one platform to another.

VMware's vRealize Suite is licensed either per-OS instance or per-CPU. The Advanced Edition will cost $575 per OS instance or $5,750 per CPU. Enterprise Edition will cost $995 per operating system instance and $9,950 per CPU. Both editions require at least one year of support at an additional cost based on the level of support and number of licenses.
