VMware Cloud on AWS – SDDCs Across Different AWS Regions

VMware Cloud on AWS
In my prior blog post, I discussed how with VMware Cloud on AWS (VMC on AWS) customers get the best of both worlds for their move to a Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) – the leading compute, storage, and network virtualization stack for enterprises deployed on dedicated, elastic, bare-metal, and highly available AWS infrastructure. Another benefit of VMC on AWS, and the focus of this post, is that you can easily have a global footprint by deploying multiple VMC SDDCs in different regions. (more…)

VMware SDDC with NSX Expands to AWS

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

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. I’ve also discussed prior how partners leverage VMware vSphere products and NSX to offer cloud environments/services to customers. In the VMworld Session NET1188BU: Disaster Recovery Solutions with NSX, I discussed how VMware Cloud Providers like iLand and IBM use NSX to provide cloud services like DRaaS. 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.

VMware NSX and Zerto - Testing DR Plan

VMware NSX and Zerto - Testing DR Plan


In a few prior blogs I posted on this site and on the VMware Network Virtualization blog site, I described and demoed how VMware NSX and SRM with vSphere Replication combined provide for an enhanced disaster recovery (DR) solution. SRM also provides additional integration with NSX when Storage Policy Protection Groups (SPPGs) are used by providing the ability to automate network mappings. One of the great things about the NSX-V platform, is it can be used with any DR orchestration tool that supports the VMware vSphere ESXi hypervisor. Some of the tools customers are using with NSX include VMware SRM, Dell EMC RP4VM, Zerto, and Veeam. As SRM was discussed and demonstrated in a prior blog, Zerto and NSX together is explained in more detail below. (more…)

VMworld 2016: Multi-site Networking and Security with Cross-VC NSX

Throughout 2016, I’ve presented multiple sessions on Multi-site with NSX, Cross-VC NSX, and Disaster Recovery. If interested, you can view some of the public presentations I gave this year at EMC World and VMworld below. I’ve also listed the repeat session if the session was presented more than once and if both sessions were recorded. (more…)

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…)
