More than 20 years ago VMware provided us with a revolutionary solution, known as virtualisation. This has helped us reduce costs with the datacenter, by reducing power, the hardware footprint as we as the need to purchase more hardware. A few years ago we have seen the era of the Hyper-Scalers, such as AWS.
Clients worldwide want to use/consume these offerings/services, but at the same time have their own trusted solutions from VMware. We have seen that this need has created the partnership with VMware & AWS. This has been a huge impact of the world of IT. We are now truly embracing the Hybrid Cloud.
One of the biggest challenges out there is, legacy applications that are running on the private cloud. In order to move these applications to the cloud there will be a need to refactor the application which can be costly and lengthy. By leveraging VMware Cloud Foundation, all the trusted products such as vSphere, vSAN & NSX are used to create a connection to the AWS cloud, giving you the same look and feel, while consuming AWS native services.
