State and local governments are looking to the cloud for ways to improve services for and with citizens through open data initiatives, public safety modernization, education reform, citizen service improvements, and infrastructure programs. However, data centers remain critical to IT operations for many state and local governments, and a majority of workloads, such as legacy business applications and sensitive data, live on-premises. Many agencies 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 government agencies to overcome these challenges by bringing your VMware Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC)-based workloads to AWS, delivered as an on-demand service. State and local governments 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.
In this session, you will learn
how your agency can benefit from a hybrid IT solution:
- Increased velocity of migrations to the AWS Cloud
- Leverage of existing investments in VMware
- Increased availability and security of running data in AWS
- Use of the VMware platform as a single pane of glass for managing servers
- Minimal training to equip existing VMware staff to support the new solution
- Integrated AWS services including compute, storage, databases and security
