VMware Cloud on AWS: Hybrid cloud solution from the industry leaders
VMware Cloud on AWS is a hybrid cloud offering that combines the power of VMware's Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) with the broad range of Amazon Web Services (AWS) in the public cloud. This provides companies with a scalable self-service cloud option that complements T-Systems' existing systems and is geared to rapidly changing business requirements and increased interest in the public cloud and multi cloud. The solution is particularly interesting for companies that already work with VMware environments. Beginners can implement the system quickly and easily – they can also adapt it to their needs effortlessly.
Cloud migration made easy
One benefit of VMware Cloud on AWS is the seamless migration of existing workloads to the public cloud: the majority of all local data centers run on the same VMware SDDC technology as VMware Cloud on AWS. This simplifies hybrid IT operations for enterprises by eliminating the need to purchase new or custom hardware, rewrite applications or change existing operating models. Companies can thus seamlessly use the public cloud with the same platform they use in their own data center – a truly innovative feature in the field of public cloud migration.
Development of new applications in the cloud with transparent access to existing applications/services
Efficient migration of traditional workloads into the public cloud as well as optional connection of native AWS services for further development, e.g. legacy application with database service
Disaster Recovery as a Service offers integrated capabilities for automated orchestration, failover and failback - without investing in a secondary data center.
Data Center Erweiterung
Needs-oriented and scalable expansion of data centers into the AWS Public Cloud, especially for high requirements and large workloads.
Optimization of latency times through global availability and use of regional locations.
Seamless Migration of Private and Public Coud Solutions
Different suppliers, same technology
The bare metal infrastructure of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and VMware SDDC technology enable performance, compatibility and straightforward portability of workloads between local environments and the AWS cloud. The secure and highly scalable service allows the use of native AWS services for storage, databases, internet of things (IoT), security or mobile applications. The many innovations are integrated into enterprise applications running on the VMware virtualization platform for computing, storage and networking.
Private environment in the public cloud
VMware Cloud on AWS is already available worldwide (South America, USA, Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia); further locations are in the pipeline. The service is provided in a single-tenant (i.e., the customer's own) environment on physically separated AWS bare-metal systems, giving customers dedicated access to their VMware vCenter. These are services that have not yet been possible in a shared and public environment. By taking into account the availability, performance, compliance and security of each cloud environment, organizations can strategically decide where to run applications – according to their business needs – or where to store their data.
T-Systems as single point of contact
With VMware Cloud on AWS, T-Systems offers a suitable platform for both traditional workloads (Mode 1) and managed cloud services for AWS (Cloud-native or Mode 2). This allows T-Systems to support and assist its customers with the strategic planning and transformation of their IT into the hybrid and public cloud.
A whole range of use cases are recommended for the use of VMware Cloud on AWS. As a managed service provider for AWS and VMware, T-Systems provides consulting services to interested companies. Under the motto "Navigate & Implement", T-Systems offers customized consulting and onboarding packages that complement the infrastructure offering and support customers in the introduction and use of cloud services.
