Two-node offering lowers entry price for production workloads
New capabilities to improve the economic value of VMware Cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS) have been introduced, making it a more affordable option for companies to migrate and update their VMware-based applications.
The offerings include the new Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) i3en instances that can deliver nearly 50 per cent lower cost per gigabyte of raw storage.
It also includes a 2-host SDDC configuration that lowers the entry price for production environments by 33 per cent (over the usual three-host node option) and a new multi-tenant cloud management service that enables partners to support more customers with no additional upfront costs.
With all this in hand, it opens up a new avenue for companies to jump on the VMware Cloud on AWS (VMC on AWS), focusing on a per VM rather than per host basis.
