VMware Cloud on AWS for Education

VMware, a global leader in cloud infrastructure and business mobility, accelerates our customers’ digital transformation journey by enabling enterprises to master a software-defined approach to business and IT.

With VMware solutions, organizations are creating exceptional experiences by mobilizing everything, responding faster to opportunities with modern data and apps hosted on a hybrid infrastructure, and safeguarding customer trust with a defense-in-depth approach to cybersecurity.

Education users take advantage of VMware-based cloud services for the rapid delivery of cloud benefits to traditional applications and VMware-based environments. A VMware hybrid-cloud solution offers a compatible, interoperable environment with full workload portability so that you can rapidly move to a public cloud service without making any changes to your applications. This is ideal for disaster recovery, dev/test environments, data center consolidation, rapid project delivery, or simply getting out of the data center business.

VMware on the AWS Cloud helps education customers expedite their transition to the AWS Cloud, and enables:

  • Increased velocity of migrations to the AWS Cloud
  • Leverage of existing investments in VMware
  • Increased availability and security of running data in AWS
  • Use of the VMware platform as a single pane of glass for managing servers
  • Minimal training to equip existing VMware staff to support the new solution
  • Integrated AWS services including compute, storage, databases and security
