Quickly Migrate to the Cloud With VMC on AWS

VMware Cloud on Amazon Web Services provides a familiar operational model while streamlining the process of moving critical business applications closer to the people and services they rely on.

The sudden and unanticipated need for a remote workforce and disruptions in global supply chains are two of the most significant challenges created by the recent pandemic crisis.

These add to the ongoing challenges of owning and operating a private cloud. 

There is now a critical need to maintain productivity by putting applications closer to the users who need them while ensuring those applications are securely accessible from anywhere. Additionally, organizations require a scalable, on-demand infrastructure without the long-term risk of over- or under-provisioning.

The challenge

For these reasons and more, public cloud adoption is more prevalent than ever. Successfully moving to a public cloud is a long-term investment in time, planning, effort and adoption and requires new paradigms and tools. Organizations that embark on this public cloud journey must also be prepared to meet the technical and business challenges presented by regulatory requirements, legacy applications, latency and data sovereignty, among others.

For many organizations, the answer to these challenges is to pursue a hybrid cloud model that merges the best facets of traditional and cloud solutions. WWT has the experience and processes to help organizations accelerate their hybrid cloud journey. We can provide support at every stage as a trusted advisor by leveraging our decades of IT infrastructure expertise and modern practices covering cloud, DevOps and agile software development.

The WWT solution

WWT partners with Amazon Web Services and VMware to deliver VMware Cloud on Amazon Web Services (VMC on AWS). This hybrid cloud solution allows organizations to rapidly deploy VMware's already familiar best-of-breed solutions atop Amazon Web Services' leading-class global data centers. Organizations benefit from these existing processes, skillsets and tools as well as from logical and physical infrastructure that is architected, built, managed and maintained by AWS and VMware.

This solution can be scaled up and out in minutes to accommodate many different kinds of mission-critical workloads with the flexibility to meet rapidly changing demands. Additionally, on-premises applications can be migrated to the public cloud more easily by using tools and processes that are already familiar to IT personnel. The hybrid cloud solution also provides a secure, reliable and highly available environment that delivers better application performance experiences for remote workforces.

To help customers rapidly on-ramp their hybrid cloud journey, WWT offers several quick start service offerings. The quick starts have been developed specifically to address the following use cases: (1) custom proof of concept/proof of value deployments for testing, (2) a pilot program and other types of initial deployments and (3) rapid deployment with secure, best practices-driven and tested baselines, with built-in mechanisms for future expansion and customization
