Second Australian location for VMware Cloud on AWS

VMware Cloud on AWS is now available in the AWS Asia Pacific (Melbourne) Region, bringing the total number of regions in Australia to two including Sydney, and eight across Asia–Pacific.

VMware Cloud on AWS is a jointly engineered service that brings VMware’s enterprise-class software-defined data centre software to AWS’s secure and extensive global infrastructure. Delivered as an on-demand service, this enables enterprise workloads to run more securely on both virtual machines and containers at scale. The VMware Cloud solution provides integrated Kubernetes and optimised access to more than 200 native AWS services, including database, analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, to enable a pragmatic approach to app modernisation. Built-in VMware NSX security capabilities also help detect and stop threats early. This includes lateral movement within and across cloud and data centre environments.

“We are pleased to be enhancing the availability of VMware Cloud on AWS across Australia,” said Brad Anderson, Vice President and Managing Director A/NZ, VMware.

“Australian customers are already using VMware Cloud on AWS to deploy, migrate and better protect applications at scale, while leveraging innovative capabilities from both AWS and VMware to accelerate their application modernisation initiatives. With the launch of VMware Cloud on AWS in the AWS Asia Pacific (Melbourne) Region, our Australian customers can take advantage of added flexibility, scalability and security for their mission-critical workloads.”
