VMware Cloud on AWS brings VMware’s Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) to the AWS Cloud, which lets you run applications across operationally consistent VMware vSphere®-based private, public, and hybrid cloud environments, with optimized access to AWS services. VMware Cloud on AWS is delivered, sold, and supported by VMware as an on-demand, elastically-scalable cloud service that removes barriers to cloud migration and cloud portability, increases IT efficiency, and opens up new opportunities for you to leverage a hybrid cloud environment.

With VMware Cloud on AWS, you use the same VMware tools including vSphere, vSAN, NSX, and vCenter on-premises or in the AWS Cloud without having to purchase any new or custom hardware, rewrite applications, or modify your operating model. The service automatically provisions infrastructure and provides full VM compatibility and workload portability between your on-premises environments and the AWS Cloud. With VMware Cloud on AWS, you can leverage AWS’s breadth of services, including compute, databases, analytics, Internet of Things (IoT), security, mobile, deployment, application services, and more.

VMware Cloud on AWS is delivered, sold, and supported by VMware as an on-demand, elastically-scalable cloud service with initial availability in the AWS US West (Oregon) Region.

Innovation

With VMware Cloud on AWS, you use the same VMware Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) technology including vSphere, vSAN, NSX and vCenter, across your on-premises environment and the AWS Cloud. You can use the same tools and management capabilities you are using today. You can keep the same VMware provisioning, storage, and lifecycle policies you use today. This means you can easily move applications between their on-premises environments and AWS without having to purchase any new hardware, rewrite applications, or modify your operations.

Security & Performance

VMware Cloud on AWS brings VMware’s Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) to the elastically scalable AWS Cloud. The service runs directly on elastic, bare metal AWS infrastructure provisioned in a single-tenant, isolated VPC. This approach lets you take advantage of the scalability, elasticity, security, and proven experience of the AWS Cloud.

Operational Simplicity

VMware virtual machines running on AWS have access to a broad set of AWS services including compute, database, analytics, IoT, AI, security, mobile, resource deployment, application services, and more. Latency-sensitive applications hosted in VMware can now directly access databases on Aurora, Dynamo or Redshift for petabyte-scale data analysis, as well as direct and secure access to low-cost S3 buckets, objects, and API functions.

100x100_benefit_hybrid-cloud

VMware Cloud on AWS lets you operate a consistent and seamless hybrid IT environment that combines the VMware software they love with the unmatched functionality, security, and operational expertise of the AWS Cloud. There is no new or custom hardware to deploy in your on-premises environment, and no need to rewrite or modify applications to shift to a hybrid cloud model. You can use VMware’s management and policy tools across both on-premises and the VMware Cloud on AWS, so you have a unified and operationally consistent experience. You can leverage the same VMware tools to help automate workload provisioning and capacity optimization in the VMware Cloud on AWS. These capabilities let you leverage all your existing investments to help save money and remove much of the complexity, risk and costs associated with moving to hybrid cloud.

Devlopment & Test

VMware Cloud on AWS lets you extend your on-premises data centers to the cloud while retaining all the tools, policies, and management you use today from VMware. By extending your existing investment in management, security, and operations, you can minimize the complexity, risk, and cost associated with hybrid cloud environments. Once in the VMware Cloud on AWS, you can take advantage of the broad set of AWS services including compute, database, analytics, IoT, AI, security, mobile, resource deployment, application services, and more. With this approach, you can set up an entire SDDC-based cluster in a few hours rather than days or weeks, or scale host capacity up and down in minutes.

Application Migration

VMmware Cloud on AWS helps you ease the migration of application workloads from on-premises to the VMware Cloud on AWS. With VMware Cloud on AWS, you can leverage bi-directional workload portability that does not require complex conversion or re-architecting, and you can maintain a consistent set of policies between your existing on-premises. This helps to further reduce the risk and cost associated with moving applications to the hybrid cloud.

Devlopment & Test

VMware Cloud on AWS provides a consistent environment for developing new applications that leverages your existing VMware vSphere-based development tools at the core. You can leverage vSphere’s RESTful API integration to the broad set of AWS services for new application development, deployment, and configuration management. Finally, VMware Cloud on AWS is an on-demand service, which allows you to pay only for what you use, and freeing you from the cost and complexity associated with planning purchasing and maintain hardware for spiky development and test needs.
