VMware Cloud on AWS customers have requirements to interconnect their SDDCs across different AWS regions, but existing network design patterns require you to build a full-mesh topology with static routing to provide multi-region connectivity for SDDCs. Learn how AWS Cloud WAN helps address VMware Cloud on AWS multi-region connectivity challenges and requirements, and review a reference architecture with a real example for integrating VMware Cloud on AWS with AWS Cloud WAN.
Reduce Storage Costs with Single-Availability Zone Deployments for Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP Datastores
Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP is a storage service that allows customers to launch and run fully managed ONTAP file systems in the cloud. Explore the benefits of single-Availability Zone deployments for FSx for NetApp datastores and review which workloads they are best suited for. Single-AZ file systems provide a lower-cost storage option for use cases that do not require the data resiliency model of a multi-AZ file system, while offering all of the same data management capabilities and features.
As you consider migrating to VMware Cloud on AWS or have already done so, you could have the requirement to protect web servers residing in a vSphere environment on the AWS global infrastructure. To provide one aspect of security for these workloads, you can leverage the AWS WAF, a web application firewall that helps protect your apps or APIs against common web exploits and bots. AWS WAF provides scanning of designated HTTP/HTTPS traffic to protect against various attacks.
From exciting announcements to insightful sessions, this post recaps what you may have missed at VMware Explore US 2022. This year, we marked the fifth year of the jointly-engineered VMware Cloud on AWS solution. Since announcing our strategic partnership in 2016, followed by the general availability of this unique managed offering at VMworld 2017, the VMware Cloud on AWS solution has evolved and continues to help customers globally migrate and modernize their VMware workloads to the cloud.
As customers adopt VMware Cloud on AWS, it’s important to provide scalable and reliable hybrid connectivity to help integrate SDDCs with on-premises and cloud-native services. VMware Cloud on AWS customers have additional network security requirements including network encryption, firewall integration, and traffic segmentation. Learn about hybrid network design patterns and considerations, and go through various network architecture design options and use cases addressing customer requirements.
Customers running virtual machines on VMware Cloud on AWS have unique storage requirements and require a solution that provides a scalable, high performance, and feature-rich file storage. Learn how you can use Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP as one of your options for providing storage to virtual machines running on VMware Cloud on AWS. We’ll then discuss different connectivity options available for VMs to access these storage volumes.
Networking is the fundamental pillar required for connectivity to VMware Cloud on AWS and beyond. It’s imperative to ensure the network architecture implemented with VMware Cloud on AWS has the ability to scale in response to customer requirements. Learn how customers can scale connectivity globally to support their business requirements using AWS Direct Connect, VMware Transit Connect, AWS Direct Connect Gateway, and the NSX Multi-Edge feature.
Learn how to support a multi-region, business-critical legacy monolithic application with customer-owned static public IPv4 addresses running on VMware Cloud on AWS. You can do this whilst using the AWS Cloud to deliver the Bring Your Own Public IPv4 Address (BYOIP) function with Amazon VPC, Network Load Balancer, Elastic IP address, Amazon Route 53, and VMware Transit Connect. VMware Cloud on AWS is an integrated hybrid cloud offering jointly developed by AWS and VMware.
As customers continually move towards hybrid cloud architectures, it has become increasingly important to address network security requirements for having a centralized security inspection solution between VMware Cloud on AWS and the native AWS environment, on-premises data centers, and the internet. Through this post, learn how to integrate preferred third-party firewall solutions with VMware Cloud on AWS, by leveraging the VMware Transit Connect feature.
With hybrid implementations, we see a design pattern where customers configure connectivity to allow communication between on-premises and VMware Cloud on AWS networks. Customers use various methods such us a VPN and/or AWS Direct Connect to implement hybrid cloud connectivity. Learn how to leverage Direct Connect to establish hybrid connectivity between on-premises VMware infrastructure and VMware Cloud on AWS.
