VMware Cloud on AWS lets customers easily run their applications in virtual machines on Amazon’s cloud infrastructure.
Customers have successfully run their business-critical applications with high performance demands on VMware vSphere for many years. It is now possible to do the same thing on AWS infrastructure in the cloud. This allows customers to deploy a complete vSphere environment, ready in hours; including servers, storage, networking, monitoring, and administration. The vSphere environment on AWS is deployed on physical infrastructure, which means that performance is essentially the same as that of a similar environment setup in an onsite datacenter.
