Here are 6 Key VMware Cloud on AWS Features launched at VMWorld 2018:

  1. App-Centric Security with NSX. We’ve extended NSX capabilities to individual VMs so you’re able to do per-app microsegmentation, effectively giving you the equivalent of a dedicated data center to each application. We’ve also added Log Intelligence, providing audit logs to the core VMware Cloud on AWS service at no additional cost.
  2. Entry-Level Price Promotion. New, smaller 3 node host minimum (down from 4) as a starting point for production workloads. Cost of the 3 host SDDC environment will be at the cost of a two-host config for a limited time.
  3. New High-Capacity Storage Option. The first ever hyper-converged storage appliance to have native integration withAmazon’s very popular Elastic Block Store (EBS). You can now independently scale compute and storage requirements. Clusters now deliver scalable storage capabilities with vSAN utilizing Amazon EBS and run on new Amazon EC2 R5.metal instances based on 2.5 GHz Intel Platinum 8000 series processes. Each host has 2 sockets, 38 cores, 96 hyperthreads, 768 GB RAM and 25-Gbps network bandwidth.
  4. Instant Data Center Evacuation. VMware Cloud on AWS is now allowing customers to be able to migrate thousands of virtual machines with zero downtime and schedule exactly when to cut over to a new cloud environment with VMware NSX Hybrid Connect, powered by vMotion and vSphere Replication. VMware is also offering a free migration cost assessment with VMware Cost Insight to assist with cloud migration planning.
  5. NSX Integration with AWS Direct Connect. This new integration with NSX -  the gold standard in Software Defined Networking, makes it easier for businesses to connect across hybrid cloud environments and improve network performance. It also enables private and consistent connectivity between VMware workloads running on VMware Cloud on AWS and those on premises. It will also accelerate migration to cloud and enable multi-tier hybrid applications.
  6. Licensing for Enterprise Apps. VMware created new custom CPU core count capabilities that allows you to specify the number of CPU cores you need. It’s for Enterprise Applications with the goal of reducing the cost of running mission critical apps are licensed per CPU core. With VM-Host Affinity, you can pin workloads to a specific host group to support licensing requirements.

VMware TAM Source 10.15

Posted by nisserow Sep 20, 2018

 

FROM THE EDITORS VIRTUAL DESK
Hi VMware TAM Newsletter Readers and welcome to the latest edition of the VMware TAM Newsletter. This week I would like to focus on a topic that is very close to us as TAMs, Customer Satisfaction. This is something that many organizations speak about and many groups include in their charter but none I believe are as relevant as how we consider Customer Satisfaction as the core tenet of the VMware TAM program. As a TAM this is 100% my focus day in and day out. And to ensure that I measure up, every 6 months my customer get to evaluate me, the results sent to our leadership team for review on each individual for each of our accounts that we work with.

 

Saying that we are customer centric, or customer first is one thing, but when your MBOs are aligned 100% to customer satisfaction, and your customers get to do the evaluation on a regular basis, means that we, as VMware TAMs, take this very seriously, which is why our TAM program is like no other in the industry, as we really do put our customers at the head of everything that we do.

 

I wish you all a fantastic rest of your week and look forward to speaking to you again soon.

 

Virtually Yours
