Long release cycles and maintenance windows for on-premises applications are still typical in many companies. Yet the outstanding importance of digitalization has long been recognized, and the will to modernize is strong.
But where to start to migrate VMware legacy workloads to the public cloud as smoothly and future-proof as possible and with minimal risk?
VMware Cloud on AWS is available in two variants. The basic Foundation version addresses customers with the need for a complete SDDC (Software Defined Data Center). This approach is suitable when extensive resources are to be relocated. For example, when a complete data center (DC) is dissolved – or an additional data center is needed (temporarily) at short notice.
However, many users do not want to go “all in” right away and dissolve a complete data center. They want to start with individual workloads and gain experience with cloud operation.
