Schools and universities are rapidly modernizing approaches to teaching and learning, requiring increased data storage and better access to web-based applications and platforms. Academic institutions seek modern IT approaches, such as the cloud, to redefine learning, increase IT operational efficiency, maintain data privacy, and manage disaster recovery. However, school-owned data centers are essential to IT operations for many academic institutions, and a majority of workloads, such as legacy business applications and sensitive institutional data, live on-premises. Many IT leaders believe that moving their applications and workloads to the cloud requires new tools, skills, and processes, all of which can be time-consuming and costly.
VMware Cloud on AWS, an integrated cloud offering jointly developed by AWS and VMware, enables school districts and universities to overcome these challenges by bringing existing VMware Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC)-based workloads to AWS, delivered as an on-demand service. Academic institutions can simplify IT operations with a hybrid solution using the same VMware technologies across on-premise data centers and on the AWS Cloud without having to purchase any new or custom hardware, rewrite applications, or modify operating models. If you are looking to increase agility, reduce costs, and focus on core citizen initiatives instead of data center management, VMware Cloud on AWS can help.
