Last year, we announced Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP integration with VMware Cloud on AWS, and introduced support for single-Availability Zone deployments. Previously, AWS Transit Gateway has been a requirement of the solution, providing customers with flexibility with connecting their file systems to their VMware Cloud on AWS SDDCs. Now, we are excited to announce the removal of AWS Transit Gateway as a requirement from the solution. Instead, we are adding support for virtual private cloud (VPC) peering.
Organizations running Oracle Database on vSphere environments are looking for migration paths for the database and the best path for them. In this post, explore database migration paths to AWS from on-premises vSphere environments and the benefit of integrating VMware Cloud on AWS with AWS Cloud Databases. We’ll also discuss how each migration path helps customers streamline operations, reduce costs, and improve overall business agility.
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.
In on-premises data centers, VMware virtualization and NetApp ONTAP storage are widely adopted solutions. The release of Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP and support for VMware Cloud on AWS give customers a new option for disaster recovery. Learn how these solutions allow for virtual machine data to be copied from an on-premises environment to AWS using NetApp SnapMirror. Once in AWS, the VMs can be imported into vCenter in a VMware Cloud on AWS environment used as a DR destination.
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.
