Managed VMware Cloud on AWS engages a broader cloud experience that offers reliable operations across SDDCs for your Virtual Data Centers. 

Establish operational consistency across your cloud environments and control your resources with tooling you already know. This lets you access new resources in minutes and handle peaks and seasonality with ease, since Effectual is managing your cloud experience with storage policies, firewall polices, and more.

  • Access AWS Services to securely unlock new digital transformation capabilities
  • Leverage existing skills and familiar VMware tools
  • Simple workload migration and portability

Without dedicated hosts for your workloads, you can struggle with “noisy neighbors” – other workloads that spike and pull system resources away from you, creating operational challenges. Effectual optimizes your application experience by configuring tiered host-based IOPS rules on storage policies to protect workload performance.

  • Scalable AWS S3 Object Storage for unstructured or high-volume data
  • Tier storage with policies for cost-effectiveness
  • Fast, efficient VMware vSAN virtualized storage great for most workloads

Give your developers easy access to validated, secure apps and streamline deployments with built-in security, networking and compliance controls. Modernize and develop cloud-native apps with Kubernetes support in your preferred environment using Effectual’s Application Design Services and cloud native application development expertise.

  • Easy VM and container provisioning and management with Kubernetes
  • Validated apps with push-button deployment
  • Support for Terraform infrastructure as code

Gain a robust set of firewall and edge services with no additional hardware required. Easily deploy multiple edge firewalls to create domains for different lines of business or sites. Effectual responds rapidly to all security issues.

  • Guard perimeter with Edge Firewall services
  • Layer 4 and Layer 7 Distributed Firewalling as a managed service.

As you seek to expand your business to new locations around the country or the world, you must also ensure your data both remains secure and complies with geo-specific regulations. Through this service, you can maintain that regulatory compliance no matter where your data resides and meet all availability and latency requirements without added work on your end.

  • Expand business in minutes to new geographies
  • Unify access across SDDCs between VMware Cloud on AWS sites

Choose between the familiar and robust vSAN as part of the SDDC, and your Amazon S3 cloud object storage (COS). COS is highly scalable and can be more cost-effective for unstructured data, such as video from surveillance cameras, or high volumes of data too large for VMware Cloud on AWS internal vSAN storage.

  • Infrequently access data can be moved to lower cost storage
  • Suitable for cloud scalability and grows with your data without limitation
  • Retrieve data much faster compared to other storage types

Integrated with private and public cloud options

Integrated with private and public cloud options through a unified Service Delivery Platform (SDP), VMware Cloud on AWS improves workload portability and business agility with policy-driven controls for running VMware workloads seamlessly.
