VMware on AWS Solutions: Why Your Business can benefit from AsiaPac Hybrid Cloud Managed Platform
As digital transformation accelerates in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations in Singapore are adopting cloud solutions at an exponential rate, thanks to its flexibility and scalability.
For some, the cloud journey has been daunting. Not only was it difficult to integrate cloud services into their current systems, but IT teams also found that they could not use their existing skillsets or tools.
To mitigate these challenges, the AsiaPac Hybrid Cloud Managed Platform makes it easier for businesses to modernize their existing infrastructure. Offered as a service, the platform eliminates large upfront investments and is a cost-effective way to cloud adoption.
As the first partner in the region to adopt VMware vRealize Operations Cloud and VMware Cloud Director to be offered as a service, AsiaPac is well-positioned to help our customers with their cloud adoption requirements and modernization journey.
What is VMware on AWS?
AWS is VMware’s preferred public cloud partner for all vSphere-based workloads. The VMware and AWS partnership delivers a faster, easier, and cost-effective path to the hybrid cloud while allowing customers to modernize applications enabling faster time-to-market and increased innovation.
With over 4 years of joint engineering, VMware and AWS provide organizations with enhanced VMware functionalities integrated in the solution and a single point of contact for support and service integration. This is why VMware Cloud on AWS is our preferred service for all vSphere workloads.
VMware Cloud on AWS brings VMware’s enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center software to the AWS Cloud, and enables customers to run production applications across VMware vSphere®-based private, public, and hybrid cloud environments, with optimized access to AWS services.
VMware’s collaboration with AWS allows businesses to further optimise their vSphere environments by providing this highly efficient environment on the AWS cloud. Therefore, it will give businesses flexibility and speed on a cloud platform.
Why You Should Use the VMware Cloud on AWS
When you use VMware on AWS, you enjoy high bandwidth and low latency connectivity to over 200 AWS services. You will be able to handle large volumes of data with ease, further multiplying the capabilities of your vSphere environments. You can also migrate application data quickly with minimum downtime, resulting in business continuity.
AWS helps to facilitate your business’ growth both locally and globally. Without AWS, you would have to construct an on-premises data centre to handle the increased load your company will undertake. It can turn out to be expensive and time-consuming. However, if you have invested in this solution, you will be able to quickly set up a cloud data centre in one of AWS’ 17 global regions. A VMware cloud takes less than two hours to set up, and you can migrate data in a mere ten minutes. This makes VMware on AWS a must for businesses that wish to expand their operations.
Return on Investment (ROI)
The biggest reason you should consider the VMware on AWS is the amount of cost savings you can get. This solution is cloud-based and requires little to no infrastructure and manpower to maintain or set up. According to AWS themselves, businesses have saved 40% on infrastructure construction, 43% on operational costs, and a whopping 479% ROI over five years. Therefore, AWS is not only efficient for your virtual servers and data but also cost-efficient for your business in the long run.
