"The cloud world is hybrid, with most companies using multiple platforms and services," explained T-Systems CEO Adel Al-Saleh. "I'm pleased that we are expanding our long-standing partnership with VMware. VMware is a leader in cloud infrastructure. AWS offers the largest public cloud. Our new managed service offering for VMware Cloud on AWS allows our clients to benefit from the AWS cloud while maximizing their existing investments in VMware."
Pat Gelsinger, CEO of VMware, said: “VMware Cloud on AWS enables customers to quickly realize business value from the hybrid cloud, by providing the same architecture and operational experience across private and public clouds. We are pleased to see T-Systems offer managed services for VMware Cloud on AWS, empowering organizations to accelerate cloud adoption, modernize their data center environments and increase IT efficiency.”
With VMware Cloud on AWS, customers can quickly add a virtual datacenter in the public cloud to their on-premise datacenters. The service, managed by T-Systems, allows data and applications to be moved between a VMware private cloud and the AWS public cloud. VMware has built a solution that can map a complete data center on top of AWS bare metal infrastructure. With these capabilities, companies can increase their IT resources around the globe quickly and cost-effectively without having to invest in their own
data centers, and take advantage of existing teams, skill sets, tools and processes.
