Bare Metal Cloud Infrastructure

vmware_Portability_08172017

VMware Cloud on AWS provides the VMware SDDC software stack to the highly scalable AWS Cloud, including vSphere, vSAN, NSX, and vCenter. Each SDDC consists of 4 to 16 hosts, each with 36 cores, 512 GiB of memory, and 15.2TB raw (roughly 21TB usable capacity in an initial 4 host cluster) of NVMe storage. You can deploy a fully configured VMware SDDC Cluster in under a few hours, and scale host capacity up and down in minutes.

All-Flash Storage

Each SDDC cluster utilizes an “all flash” vSAN storage solution built on NVMe instance storage. Each ESXi host has NVMe storage. An initial 4 host cluster running vSAN provides 15.2TB raw storage (roughly 21TB usable capacity). You can manage your storage SLAs on a per-application basis through your existing Storage Policy-Based Management provided by vSphere. You can also take advantage of advanced data services, including Quality of Service, snapshots, erasure coding, and APIs for third-party data protection (vADP).

Dedicated High Performance Networking

VMware Cloud on AWS provides separate, dedicated high performance networks for management and application traffic, connected through the VMware NSX networking platform, and provides support for networking multicasting. ESXi hosts are connected to an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) through Elastic Networking Adapter (ENA), which supports throughput up to 25 Gbps.

Secure Infrastructure

VMware Cloud on AWS lets you benefit from AWS security-first approach, including IPSec VPN connectivity between your on-premises environment and VMware Cloud on AWS. You can utilize Network Address Translation (NAT) to establish connectivity for workloads running in your private subnet with VMware Cloud on AWS, and leverage network ACLs to control traffic to and from the subnet.
