Exciting lineup of VMware Cloud on AWS sessions at VMworld 2017

VMworld is right around the corner and we have an exciting line up of VMware Cloud on AWS sessions! VMware Cloud on AWS will bring VMware&#rsquo;s enterprise class Software-Defined Data Center technologies to AWS, with seamless access to the broad portfolio of AWS offerings and is scheduled to be available in summer 2017.

VMware Cloud on AWS is built from industry-leading VMware vSphere®, VMware vSANTM and VMware NSX®, and is operated as a service. This service seamlessly integrates with existing customer datacenters already running on vSphere. Further, vSphere runs on elastic, bare-metal AWS infrastructure and the familiar vCenter Server management environment eliminates retraining staff that would normally be required to benefit from the public cloud.

With the schedule builder going live, we have compiled a list of VMware Cloud on AWS sessions featuring well known speakers from VMware and AWS including Frank Denneman, Paul Bockelman, Brian Graf, Emad Younis, Wen Yu, Principal Engineers Robert Bosch, Chris Wagner and many more!

Big Data Video – Benefits of Virtualizing Big Data on vSphere

We often get questions from people who are new to big data about the reasons for virtualizing these newer infrastructures and applications. People are also interested in knowing the benefits you can gain from doing so. This video provides a set of answers to those questions. Summarizing the main points discussed in the video, the benefits you get when you decide to virtualize your big data infrastructure are:

(a) higher flexibility of management

(b) rapid provisioning of clusters through cloning

(c) freedom from dedicating groups of hardware to individual clusters

(d) performance that can equal that of native deployment and

(e) isolation of your workloads by grouping your virtual machines with resource pool boundaries.

Of course, virtualizing your big data workload also makes it ready for the cloud, as virtualization is the key technology underlying private or public clouds. The video concentrates on Spark as one example of a big data environment, but these principles apply to all distributed platforms, Hadoop and others, that support big data and analytics.

The video shows an outline architecture for a Spark-based system, which is growing very rapidly in the Hadoop market - and gives a short recipe for virtualizing that architecture. You can learn much more about this subject by going to the VMware Big Data site

3 Reasons To Go Hybrid

Customers often view public clouds as a means to gain the agility to respond to changing business needs or accelerate innovation and align costs. While some customers will be completely based in the public cloud, the reality for many customers, if not most, is that they will have a mix of private infrastructure models and public clouds – having the option and ability to integrate the two into a hybrid cloud is a goal many customers are seeking to achieve. To help establish a better understanding of how customers can derive value from a hybrid cloud-based approach, we&#rsquo;ve created an infographic covering the benefits from hybrid cloud integration. Here&#rsquo;s the three key ways VMware Cloud on AWS is the best-in-class hybrid cloud solution for your enterprise:

Workload flexibility, with access to native cloud services

An integrated hybrid cloud approach with VMware Cloud on AWS puts the power in the customers hands to decide where they want to run their workloads, depending on business needs, cost factors and risk considerations. Being able to move workloads onsite or offsite helps companies tailor their IT capabilities to meet these specific needs. Application portability, without having to re-platform these applications, provides enterprises with the flexibility they need to adapt to changing business needs. In addition, being able to leverage native cloud services in a seamless fashion allows customers to modernize their applications in a frictionless manner. Adopting a cloud platform that includes a flexible infrastructure can help enterprises take a proactive approach when industry trends emerge; the more flexible the platform the faster companies can generate quick turnarounds to capitalize on new service opportunities in today&#rsquo;s evolving IT landscape.

Consistency with scalability

With VMware Cloud on AWS, companies can leverage operational consistency with scalability, all on one streamlined platform. Maintaining consistent on and off premises resource utilization, along with security and networking policies are key considerations in effectively utilizing a hybrid structure. This can help customers strategically leverage and allocate company resources to optimize system functionality and amplify growth potential. With the ability to scale capacity according to business needs without running into IT barriers or friction, the hybrid cloud presents enterprises with the opportunity to adopt a cloud infrastructure that grows and evolves with their business offerings

Maximizing use of existing skillsets and cost optimization

With VMware Cloud on AWS, customers can get a hybrid cloud offering that integrates with existing IT investments by utilizing familiar tools that they have used on-premises, companies can utilize their own resources rather than adopting new tools or acquiring additional hardware that needs manual installation. In addition, such integrated hybrid cloud models allow customers to align their costs to business needs, letting them balance upfront costs with recurring expenses, depending on their requirements.

As a VMware white paper states, 15 percent of workloads currently live in the public cloud and 50 percent of workloads are projected to run in the public cloud by 2030.[1] This signals increased user reliability on cloud capabilities and having a mix of both public cloud and on-premises infrastructure models for the foreseeable future.
