Las Vegas / Praha – 30. srpna 2017 – Společnosti VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW) a Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), kterou vlastní Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN), na konferenci VMworld® 2017 oznámily dostupnost služby VMware Cloud™ na platformě AWS. Řešení je výsledkem strategické spolupráce zahájené v říjnu 2016. Služba VMware Cloud na platformě AWS nabízí softwarově definované datové centrum VMware (SDDC) v cloudu AWS a umožňuje zákazníkům provozovat aplikace konzistentně v privátním, veřejném a hybridním cloudovém prostředí založeném na VMware vSphere® s optimalizovaným přístupem ke službám AWS. VMware Cloud na platformě AWS poskytuje, prodává a podporuje společnost VMware jako elasticky škálovatelnou službu na vyžádání, která odstraňuje bariéry migrace do cloudu a přenositelnosti cloudu, zvyšuje efektivitu IT a otevírá zákazníkům nové možnosti využití hybridního cloudového prostředí. Zájemci o službu VMware Cloud na platformě AWS mohou navštívit http://cloud.vmware.com/vmc-aws.

 

Zákazníci z různých odvětví zrychlují zavádění cloudu AWS a infrastruktury VMware a řada z nich požaduje možnost plně propojit svá lokální datacentrová prostředí s AWS pomocí stávajících nástrojů a se stávajícími zdroji v rámci jednotného provozního prostředí založeného na známém softwaru VMware. Služba VMware Cloud na platformě AWS jim toto umožňuje. Poskytuje plně integrovaný hybridní cloud, který rozšiřuje lokální prostředí vSphere do VMware SDDC běžícího na elastické fyzické infrastruktuře AWS.

 

„Přínos spolupráce VMware a AWS spočívá v tom, že umožňuje spojit možnosti řešení VMware na podnikové úrovni s možnostmi a rozsahem cloudu AWS a poskytnout platformu pro libovolnou aplikaci,“ říká Pat Gelsinger, generální ředitel společnosti VMware. „Služba VMware Cloud na platformě AWS zákazníkům nabízí plně integrovaný hybridní cloud, který poskytuje shodnou architekturu, schopnosti a ovládání v lokální prostředí vSphere i v cloudu AWS.“

 

„S pomocí služby VMware Cloud na platformě AWS mohou zákazníci poprvé provozovat konzistentní plně integrované hybridní IT prostředí, které spojuje oblíbený software VMware s bezkonkurenčními funkcemi, bezpečností a provozními možnostmi cloudu AWS,“ říká Andy Jassy, generální ředitel společnosti AWS. „Většina podniků na světě virtualizuje svá datová centra pomocí řešení VMware a nyní tito zákazníci mohou snadno přenášet aplikace mezi lokálními prostředími a AWS, aniž by museli pořizovat nový hardware, aplikace přepisovat nebo upravovat provozní procesy.“

 

Služba VMware Cloud na platformě AWS je založená na SDDC platformě VMware Cloud Foundation™, kde jsou virtualizační technologie vSphere, VMware VSAN™ a VMware NSX® spravovány pomocí VMware vCenter®. To znamená, že zákazníci mohou své aplikace spravovat pomocí známých nástrojů VMware, aniž by potřebovali nový nebo na míru upravený hardware, museli aplikace přepisovat nebo měnit provozní model. Se službou VMware Cloud na platformě AWS mohou využívat celou šíři služeb AWS, včetně výpočetních zdrojů, databází, analýzy dat, internetu věcí (IoT), zabezpečení, mobility, implementace, aplikačních služeb a dalších.

 

Služba VMware Cloud na platformě AWS nabízí:

  • Možnosti podnikového softwarově definovaného centra VMware ve spojení s pružností, bezkonkurenční funkcionalitou a zavedeností veřejného cloudu AWS
  • Identické dovednosti, nástroje a procesy pro správu privátních a veřejných cloudových prostředí, což zákazníkům zajišťuje konzistentnost provozu, vyšší produktivitu a nižší náklady
  • Rychlou bezproblémovou obousměrnou přenositelnost pracovních zátěží mezi privátním a veřejným cloudem
  • Možnost volby, kde budou podle potřeb podniku aplikace provozovány při dostupnosti širokého spektra služeb a elasticitě infrastruktury AWS pro prostředí SDDC VMware
  • Rychlou realizaci užitku s možností navyšování i snižování kapacity serverů v řádu minut a zprovoznění celého softwarově definovaného centra VMware za několik málo hodin
  • Možnost provozovat, spravovat a zabezpečovat aplikace v hybridním IT prostředí bez nutnosti pořídit specializovaný hardware, přepisovat aplikace nebo upravovat provozní modely.
