March 7, 2018
Campbell, CA (March 7, 2018) – Groupware Technology, a leading IT solutions provider, today announced it has achieved the VMware Cloud on AWS Solution Competency, and will offer VMware Cloud on AWS. VMware Cloud on AWS brings together VMware’s enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software and elastic, bare-metal infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to give organizations consistent operating model and application mobility for private and public cloud.
Organizations across a diverse number of industries are accelerating adoption of AWS Cloud and VMware infrastructure. Many of these organizations want the ability to seamlessly integrate their on-premises data center environments with AWS using their existing tools and skillsets within a common operating environment based on familiar VMware software.
VMware Cloud on AWS delivers on this promise, with a seamlessly integrated hybrid cloud that extends on-premises vSphere environments to a VMware SDDC running on AWS elastic, bare-metal infrastructure. Customers can run applications across operationally consistent VMware vSphere-based private, public and hybrid cloud environments, with optimized access to AWS services.
The benefits of VMware Cloud on AWS include:
- Enterprise capabilities of VMware SDDC with the agility, unmatched functionality and operational expertise of AWS’s leading public cloud
- Identical skills, tools and processes for managing private and public cloud environments so customers have consistent operations, improved productivity and reduced cost
- Seamless, fast and bi-directional workload portability between private and public clouds
- Flexibility to choose where to run applications based on business needs
- Rapid time to value with the ability to scale host capacity up or down in a few minutes and spin up an entire VMware SDDC in less than a few hours
- Ability to run, manage and secure applications in a hybrid IT environment without having to procure custom hardware, revise applications or change operating models
“We’re pleased to see Groupware Technology offer VMware Cloud on AWS and achieve the new VMware Cloud on AWS Solution Competency. With this achievement, Groupware Technology can help customers accelerate cloud adoption and migration, modernize their data center environments and increase IT efficiency,” said Rich Figer, Vice President, North America Solution Partners, VMware. “VMware Cloud on AWS provides a full VMware-based SDDC experience that extends from customers’ on-premises environment to the world’s largest public cloud, AWS, and enables customers to eliminate operational complexity by managing a hybrid cloud environment with familiar VMware tools.”
“The enhanced VMware Cloud on AWS solution is great news for our customers as it removes barriers to cloud migration and portability, as well as increases IT efficiency and opens up new opportunities for them to leverage a hybrid cloud environment,” stated Ed Horley, VP of Engineering for Groupware Techology.
