VMware Cloud on AWS is the only hybrid cloud solution that allows VMware vSphere customers to modernize, protect, and scale mission-critical applications leveraging AWS, the world’s leading public cloud. With the inclusion of VMware Hybrid Cloud Extension in the base offering, we’ve made it extremely easy to migrate applications at scale to VMware Cloud on AWS. Once you are there, VMware’s enterprise-class SDDC capabilities coupled with the elasticity, breadth, and depth of AWS infrastructure and services make VMware Cloud on AWS the ideal platform for your enterprise applications.
VMware Cloud on AWS provides the performance, availability, and scale required to support the most resource intensive applications, including Oracle databases, middleware, and applications, and Microsoft SQL Server. VMware vSphere, vSAN, and NSX running on Amazon EC2 dedicated, elastic, bare-metal infrastructure delivers the predictable, high-performance infrastructure required for these workloads. Application uptime and availability are enabled through capabilities built directly in the service such as vSphere HA, DRS, auto host remediation, and Stretched Clusters for zero-RPO infrastructure availability. Elastic DRS will allow customers to optimize their Oracle or Microsoft environments for either cost or performance through automatic scaling and load balancing of workloads.
