Datapipe, a provider of managed cloud services for enterprises, has announced its intent to build an offering for VMware Cloud on AWS. VMware Cloud on AWS brings together VMware’s enterprise-grade Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software and the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.
VMware Cloud on AWS would enable customers to run production applications across VMware vSphere-based private, public, and hybrid cloud environments with optimized access to AWS Cloud.
Datapipe’s planned offering will help manage customers’ AWS and VMware Cloud on AWS footprints. It would bring the same level of managed services and support as Datapipe’s main offerings, including a unified management framework with a single monitoring platform, network connectivity options, best practices based security and governance, and more. Datapipe can assist customers with planning, building, and running their approach for AWS Cloud with its full service offering.
“As a VMware Cloud Provider partner and an AWS Premier Consulting Partner, Datapipe will be well-positioned to help enterprise clients through this new platform on their cloud journey,” said David Lucky, Director of Product Management, Datapipe. “Datapipe is committed to constantly developing new solutions to better facilitate cloud services, and this new offering will allow our mutual customers to combine VMware tool sets with the vast capabilities of AWS to simplify operations on the cloud. We’re excited to be one of the first MSPs that will offer this solution that makes it easier to run VMware workloads on AWS.”
According to Datapipe, organizations that adopt VMware Cloud on AWS would benefit from:
- Broad set of AWS services and infrastructure elasticity for VMware SDDC environments
- Flexibility to strategically choose where to run applications based on business needs
- Proven capabilities of VMware SDDC software and AWS Cloud to deliver customer value
- Seamless, fast, and bi-directional workload portability between private and public clouds
“VMware Cloud on AWS provides customers a seamlessly integrated hybrid cloud offering that gives customers the SDDC experience from the leader in private cloud, running on the leading public cloud provider, AWS,” said Ajay Patel, senior vice president and general manager, Product Development, Cloud Services, VMware. “Solutions such as Datapipe will enable IT teams to reduce cost, increase efficiency, and create operational consistency across cloud environments. We’re excited to work with partners such as Datapipe in the future to enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS capabilities and empower customers with flexibility and choice in solutions that can drive business value.”
Datapipe is a Premier partner in the VMware Cloud Provider Program and was an active participant in the VMware Cloud on AWS Project Early Access Program, providing technical and business feedback to the joint development teams. Datapipe is working with VMware to develop and shape VMware’s MSP model, which will allow Datapipe to deliver a complete VMWare Cloud on AWS solution.
