FROM THE EDITORS VIRTUAL DESK
Hi everyone, one of the major announcements that we made at VMworld and garnered a lot of attention was VMware Cloud on AWS. We provided many sessions on this and over the past weeks since VMworld there have been numerous articles and other information pieces related to this. I find this to be particularly interesting and looking forward to seeing much of this in action. Well now you can test this using the VMware Hand On Labs (HOL) with a newly released lab "VMware Cloud on AWS Hands-on Lab".

"See the new VMware on AWS solution. Interact with the VMware Cloud interface to perform basic tasks and manage your public cloud capacity." This is the premise behind the newly released lab and I hope that you will take it for a test run today. Have a chat to your VMware TAM or rep if you need any further information as I am sure there will be questions during and after running through this lab which you will need answered and they will be able to provide you with more insight.

You can also head over to our VMware Cloud landing page to see more on this and all of our other cloud offerings that are powered by VMware vSphere.

I wish you a fantastic week ahead, please do not hesitate to provide feedback on the newsletter.

Virtually Yours

  • New report from IDC highlights the many benefits of VMware VVols
    I find one of the biggest barriers to VVols adoption is lack of customer understanding of what VVols is and what it will do for them. Many customers are happy with VMFS and the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mind-sight is prevalent which keeps them using what they are comf...
