VMware a AWS urychlují globální zavádění služby VMware Cloud na AWS

VMware Cloud na AWS přidává nová datová centra v Evropě a USA. Širší možnosti pro obnovu po havárii, migraci do cloudu, cloudové virtuální desktopy a produktovou podporu

PRAHA / BARCELONA, Španělsko – 8. listopadu 2018 – Společnost VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), na konferenci VMworld Europe 2018 oznámila další rozšiřování dostupnosti služby VMware Cloud on AWS v Evropě a Spojených státech. Ve 4. čtvrtletí 2018 budou zavedeny nové regiony AWS EU (Irsko), AWS West (severní Kalifornie) a AWS East (Ohio). Společnost VMware také představila nové funkcionality této hybridní cloudové služby, které zákazníkům pomohou lépe chránit a zabezpečovat aplikace a virtuální desktopy.

VMware Cloud na AWS přináší softwarově definované datové centrum VMware do cloudu AWS. Tato hybridní cloudová služba založená na platformě VMware Cloud Foundation poskytuje konzistentní infrastrukturu a zajišťuje konzistentnost provozu od datového centra po cloud. Umožňuje tak zákazníkům jednoduše přejít na cloud, škálovat zdroje podle aktuální potřeby a realizovat strategie aplikací příští generace. Aplikace nasazené v tomto prostředí, které společně vytvořily společnosti VMware a Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), mohou využít výhod robustní ochrany proti havárii a optimalizovaného přístupu ke službám AWS. Díky totožné architektuře a řízení provozu v lokálním a cloudovém prostředí mohou IT týmy nyní podniku pomoci rychle realizovat přínosy využití hybridního cloudu AWS a VMware. VMware Cloud na AWS dodává, prodává a podporuje společnost VMware a komunita jejích partnerů.

„VMware Cloud na AWS získává celosvětově na oblibě,“ říká Mark Lohmeyer, viceprezident společnosti VMware a generální ředitel obchodní jednotky cloudových platforem. „Nyní poprvé zavádíme několik regionů současně. Zároveň neustále inovujeme naše globální datová centra. VMware Cloud na AWS se stává preferovaným prostředím pro zákazníky, kteří migrují pracovní zátěže ze systémů VMware do cloudu. A partnerská podpora je rozsáhlejší než kdy dříve – za pouhých šest měsíců bylo pro toto řešení vyškoleno přes 200 partnerů. Dneškem dáváme zákazníkům k dispozici ještě lepší hybridní cloudové řešení, které mohou využít pro své nejnáročnější aplikace, s dokonalejším zabezpečením a v rozsahu, jaký potřebují.“

Dále tisková zpráva pokračuje v angličtině:

“Our VMware Cloud on AWS customers are able to uniquely migrate applications such as SAP, Oracle, and SQL Server between and across SDDCs and availability zones faster and more securely than ever before with the use of VMware HCX, VMware vMotion, and VMware NSX integration with AWS Direct Connect,” said Sandy Carter, vice president, EC2 Windows Enterprise Workloads, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “AWS is thrilled to be part of this high-performance and secure cloud solution that takes advantage of a Virtual Cloud Network to accelerate cloud and workload migration, as well as application hybridity, with no additional HW cost.”

Protecting Business Operations with Fast, Large-Scale Disaster Recovery as a Service

Advancements to disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) for VMware Cloud on AWS deliver robust protection for large-scale and storage intensive workloads, while significantly reducing the cost and complexity previously required to enable the business continuity of mission-critical applications.

With VMware Site Recovery, customers benefit from automated orchestration, failover and failback capabilities, reducing secondary DR site costs, accelerating time-to-protection, increasing business resilience and simplifying DR operations. VMware Site Recovery enables customers to take advantage of flexible protection topologies between VMware Cloud on AWS and on-premises and between VMware Cloud on AWS environments. And, with the latest release, VMware announced that VMware Site Recovery will double in scale to 1,000 VMs per SDDC, reducing the overall cost and operational overhead for protecting large scale environments.

To minimize operational costs, customers pay only for what they use, when they need it, with granular, on-demand cloud pricing. Elastic DRS enables customers to optimize resource management by automating SDDC cluster scaling after failover happens based on user requirements, and Elastic vSAN with Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) will help customers further reduce costs of protecting storage intensive workloads.

VMware has teamed with Dell EMC to combine Dell EMC VxRail with VMware Site Recovery for comprehensive push button failover to VMware Cloud on AWS. This enables customers to quickly setup, test and failover from VxRail to the cloud on-demand, while benefitting from the operational consistency of VMware vSAN hyperconverged infrastructure that powers both VxRail and VMware Cloud on AWS.

The Hybrid Cloud Destination for Virtual Desktops and Applications

VMware Horizon 7 for VMware Cloud on AWS delivers a seamlessly integrated hybrid cloud for virtual desktops and applications. It combines the enterprise capabilities of VMware Cloud on AWS, with the leading capabilities of VMware Horizon – for a simple, more secure and scalable solution. VMware Cloud on AWS now supports Horizon 7 Instant Clones for just-in-time provisioning of virtual desktops. Customers can now spin up virtual desktops at an average rate of 1-2 seconds per desktop, and Instant Clones reduce storage consumed by up to 80 percent. Rolling desktop patching as users log off further simplifies maintenance. VMware also announced integration of Horizon 7 with the Horizon Cloud Service. This integration will provide unified visibility, health monitoring and helpdesk services for Horizon 7 deployments across both VMware Cloud on AWS and on-premises infrastructure.

Supporting Large-Scale, More Secure Cloud Migrations and Application Portability Globally

With continued expansion of VMware Cloud on AWS to additional AWS regions, and with new migration and portability capabilities, customers can more rapidly and reliably migrate applications and extend data centers to the cloud. Previously, a customer’s live migration of a large volume of VMs would incur data synchronization overhead, jeopardizing the reliability of the migration. VMware Cloud Motion with vSphere Replication, a capability in VMware Hybrid Cloud Extension, is now available providing predictable, live migration of thousands of virtual machines with zero downtime. Customers can also uniquely live migrate individual applications between and across SDDCs and Availability Zones using VMware vMotion.

In addition, with integration between VMware NSX, a foundational component of VMware Cloud on AWS and AWS Direct Connect, customers have a high-performance and intrinsically more secure Virtual Cloud Network to accelerate workload migration to the cloud. Networking and security are essential to successful data center extension and cloud migration projects. NSX and AWS Direct Connect integration accelerates migration to the cloud and enables multi-tier hybrid applications. Further, NSX micro-segmentation capabilities that are now available also deliver application-centric security with policies that follow workloads wherever they move within the SDDC environment.

New In-Product Support Experience for VMware Cloud on AWS

Customers run their business-critical operations on VMware Cloud on AWS. This means high-value technical support is essential for delivering operational efficiency, risk reduction and business continuity. VMware’s new In-Product Support gives customers a truly unique and effortless support experience to meet the dynamic needs of their digital business. VMware In-Product Support provides access to support channels and resources, including Chat with Support, Manage Support Requests, Community Support and Intelligent Search, from directly within their VMware environment. This provides customers a streamlined support experience, enabling customers to resolve their issues more quickly and easily. At VMworld Europe 2018, introduced VMware’s new In-Product Support Experience for VMware Cloud customers within Cloud Services Console, VMware Cloud on AWS and VMware Skyline. Following this initial introduction, we expect additional VMware Cloud solutions will receive the In-Product Support Experience in the future.
