VMware have announced the general availability of VMware Cloud on AWS in the APAC (Asia Pacific) market. With this expansion, VMware seeks to allow customers to make the most out of consistent AWS infrastructure while moving from SDDCs (Software-Defined Data Centers) to AWS cloud.
VMWare claim that APAC as a region thrives on software applications which are stored over on-premise environments. They say that these applications take a lot of time while migrating to cloud environments from legacy setups.
By expanding into the APAC market, VMware believe that their VMware Cloud on AWS service will allow customers to fast-track migration time for applications by leveraging AWS’ infrastructure. They say that customers will be able to run applications on hybrid-cloud environments with optimized access to AWS’ robust disaster protection.
Mark Lohmeyer, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Cloud Platform Business Unit at VMware, commented:
VMware Cloud on AWS provides a fast and cost-effective way to migrate mission-critical applications, or even entire data centers, to the cloud.
And once in the cloud, we provide the industry-leading Software-Defined Data Center capabilities of VMware, coupled with the elasticity, breadth, and depth of AWS infrastructure and services, making it the ideal platform for modern applications.
