VMware Cloud on AWS – Disaster Recovery and other use cases

I was lucky enough to be able to share some details about the new VMware Site Recovery service at the AWS re:Invent conference alongside Wen Yu. In the VMware Cloud on AWS technical deep dive and native service integration session we covered some key use cases customers are looking to address with VMware Cloud on AWS including:

  • Disaster Recovery
  • Database Migration
  • Securing web/content management

Launch Often! VMware Cloud on AWS

At VMworld, back in August, the first version of VMware Cloud on AWS was launched. Now three months later we’re doing it again! As the Product Manager owning the storage and disaster recovery initiatives it’s been a great experience to work with the joint VMware and AWS teams as we delivered the storage platform for VMware Cloud on AWS (built with vSAN), and are now delivering new Disaster Recovery (DR) capabilities with VMware Site Recovery.

Delivering improved resiliency and DR options has been an important focus for VMware Cloud on AWS. This new capability allows customers to protect their mission-critical workloads running on-premises to VMware Cloud on AWS, or vice-versa. We also support protection between VMware Cloud on AWS SDDCs. This enables customers to protect workloads across different AWS Availability Zones, or even between AWS Regions with the newly announced support for US East (N. Virginia).

It’s also been a great experience┬áto work closely with some of our forward-looking customers as we’ve been developing VMware Cloud on AWS. Listen to one of these early customers share their view of the collaboration between VMware and AWS, and the new capabilities we’re delivering.
