VMware Cloud on AWS

104 Launches
Solution Overview
VMware Cloud on AWS is an on-demand service that enables you to run applications across vSphere-based cloud environments with access to a broad range of AWS services. Powered by VMware Cloud Foundation, this service integrates vSphere, vSAN and NSX along with VMware vCenter management, and is optimized to run on dedicated, elastic, bare-metal AWS infrastructure.


Goals & Objectives

This lab is an on-demand sandbox environment designed to enable our customers, partners, and engineers on the value and capabilities of VMware Cloud on AWS.  Users are given the persona of a VMware administrator and allowed access to perform most actions including creating resources and migrating VMs (cold, vMotion, or via HCX).  Users are encouraged to test out workflows and use cases within the sandbox.
