New IDC Study Shows VMware Cloud on AWS Delivers Significant Value to Customers

Amazon Web Service (AWS) and VMware continue to innovate on behalf of customers with our jointly engineered solution of VMware Cloud on AWS.

The maturity of this joint offering provides customers with a faster, secure, and cost-effective way to modernise applications and innovate in the cloud.

VMware Cloud on AWS brings VMware’s enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center software to AWS and enables customers to run production applications across VMware vSphere-based private, public, and hybrid cloud environments, with optimised access to AWS native services.

This is why AWS is VMware’s preferred public cloud partner for all vSphere-based workloads, and VMware Cloud on AWS is the preferred service for AWS for all vSphere workloads.

A new 2020 IDC study shows the VMware Cloud on AWS service provides significant business and operational value to customers in improving their IT infrastructure and delivers flexibility, agility, and scalability to their business.

In this study, IDC uncovers that on average, customers will realise an estimated 479 percent ROI over five years, so it makes sense that our customers became evangelists on the benefits of VMware Cloud on AWS to their business.

Top Benefits of Choosing VMware Cloud on AWS

From global scalability and easier migrations to reduced costs and simplified management of the overall solution, VMware Cloud on AWS customers is modernising applications faster than they could before.

“The biggest benefits [of choosing VMware Cloud on AWS] are speed of adoption and ability to do scaling up and down fairly easily. High-end vendor support is important to us, being able to provision instances dynamically, and automation behind those instances. Those would be the big drivers.” ~ Anonymous, IDC: The Business Value of VMware Cloud on AWS

“The reason for choosing AWS over other providers was cost, which is always important to us.” ~ Anonymous, IDC: The Business Value of VMware Cloud on AWS

These benefits are made possible through the significant cost reductions and efficiencies driven by this hybrid solution. IDC also found that organisations see a 43 percent reduction in total operations costs covering several categories:

  • Estimated five-year ROI
  • Less unplanned downtime
  • Reduction in IT infrastructure costs

Customers Prefer VMware Cloud on AWS for Migration and Modernisation

In addition to the benefits stated above, organisations are seeing faster times to migrate, which is freeing up valuable developer resources to focus on building new architectures and applications.

This allows organisations to move away from a transactional approach with customers to a relationship-building approach, continuing to improve how they integrate with and support their customers.

“The time freed up by VMware Cloud on AWS allowed all my engineers and my BI analyst to focus on building the new architecture, as well as new reports. From a company perspective, we have three core initiatives: data strategy, customer strategy, and making sure we are improving how we integrate with partners and support them. VMware Cloud on AWS basically started our data strategy, and it actually enables all three core initiatives.” ~ Anonymous, IDC: The Business Value of VMware Cloud on AWS
