VMware Cloud on AWS Communicating to Native AWS Resources
I’ve also posted this blog on the VMware Network Virtualization Blog site. If you haven’t already, please read my prior two blogs on VMware Cloud on AWS: VMware SDDC with NSX Expands to AWS and VMware Cloud on AWS – SDDCs Across Different AWS Regions; I’ve also posted these on the VMware Network Virtualization Blog. The prior blogs provide a good intro and information of some of the functionality and advantages of the service. In this blog post I expand the discussion to the advantages of VMware Cloud on AWS being able to communicate with native AWS resources. This is something that would be desired if you have native AWS EC2 instances you want VMware Cloud on AWS workloads to communicate with or if you want to leverage other native AWS services like AWS S3 VPC Endpoint or RDS.

VMC on AWS VMware Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) technologies like vSphere ESXi, vCenter, vSAN, and NSX have been leveraged by thousands of customers globally to build reliable, flexible, agile, and highly available data center environments running thousands of workloads.

In 2016, VMware and AWS announced a strategic partnership, and, at VMworld this year, general availability of VMware Cloud on AWS (VMC on AWS) was announced; this new service is the focus of this post.

Let me repeat that: “$2.5 BILLION”; you heard right. Markus Persson, the 35 year-old original and main developer with 71% stake in Mojang became an instant billionaire and a member of the Forbes World’s Billionaire list overnight.

The Rise of the Hybrid Cloud

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

Hybrid CloudAs many organizations move their corporate services to private clouds to cut costs, enable rapid provisioning of resources, enable advanced monitoring, and increase up-time, I believe we will see a continuous uptake of solutions which tie private cloud services and public cloud services together into something called the “hybrid cloud”. The key will be to use a secure connection such as a VPN tunnel to connect the private and public clouds together. This can be a great cost-effective solution as a company, especially a start-up, doesn’t have to carry the burden of building the entire infrastructure from scratch. (more…)
