Cost Savings And Business Benefits Enabled By VMware Cloud On AWS

Published by: VMware

VMware Cloud on AWS is an integrated cloud offering jointly developed by AWS and VMware. VMware Cloud on AWS provides customers with a scalable solution to migrate and extend their on-premises vSphere-based
environments to the public cloud.
VMware commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential ROI enterprises may realize by deploying VMware Cloud on AWS. The purpose of this study is
to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of VMware Cloud on AWS on their organizations.
To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with this investment, Forrester interviewed several customers with at least six months of experience using VMware Cloud on AWS. These customers used VMware Cloud on AWS to migrate their on-premises vSphere workloads to the public cloud. Using VMware Cloud on AWS, customers consolidated their on premises data centers, extended their data center capacity with cloud resources, and enhanced their disaster recovery capabilities.
Prior to using VMware Cloud on AWS, the customers maintained their own (larger) on-premises vSphere environments. These data center environments required expensive systems maintenance, hardware refresh, and real estate and power/cooling costs. Organizations previously explored moving to the cloud prior to the availability of VMware Cloud on AWS, but they determined that doing so would have required: significant business disruptions, re-architecture of applications to run natively in the public cloud, and the investment in new cloud development and operations skills.
