New VMware Cross-Cloud services available on AWS

VMware has made it easier for AWS customers to purchase and deploy VMware Cross-Cloud services.

VMware Carbon Black Cloud, VMware Tanzu and CloudHealth are the latest services now available in the AWS Marketplace.

The company says its Cross-Cloud services offer distinct advantages to both IT operators and developers working in AWS. Benefits include accelerating application modernisation, migrating workloads faster to the cloud, adopting a cloud operating model for the entire organisation, and connecting a distributed workforce to cloud-based resources more securely and efficiently.

"Whether a customer has transitioned their business to run entirely in AWS or has a mixed environment of AWS and VMware vSphere, VMware Cross-Cloud services gives them the freedom and enterprise control they need to innovate and win," says VMware vice president, Cross-Cloud Solutions, Vittorio Viarengo.

"Our expanded presence in AWS Marketplace is another proof point of our focus on meeting customers where they are at by delivering value for the strategic cloud environment of their choice."

Mona Chadha, director of AWS Marketplace Category Management, says the addition of VMware Cross-Cloud services in AWS Marketplace brings VMware's portfolio of solutions to both developers and infrastructure and operations professionals who are building apps and operating their businesses in AWS.

"Our mutual customers can streamline procurement and accelerate the adoption of VMware Cross-Cloud services, leading to faster time-to-value and better business outcomes," she says.

Advancing app modernisation and DevSecOps with VMware Tanzu

VMware Tanzu is a modular application platform for building, running, and managing modern apps on AWS and hybrid-cloud infrastructure. The platform provides a consistent experience for developers and operators, enabling them to navigate modern apps and Kubernetes.

At Tanzu's core is an upstream-aligned Kubernetes distribution that's easy to operate and maintain using Cluster API for deploying and updating clusters. As an AWS Partner Network (APN) Advanced Technology Partner, customers can use the services of VMware Tanzu Labs to work with teams to build capabilities and install processes that have an immediate impact.

With Tanzu, AWS customers benefit from developer self-service access to clusters, along with a standardised, more secure build model for creating and maintaining containers, fleet-wide policy management for pod access, networking, and security enabling simultaneous policy application to hundreds of Kubernetes clusters, and full-stack observability capable of performing at more than a million data points per second.
Enabling consistent and unified enterprise security with VMware Carbon Black Cloud

A cloud-native endpoint, workload, and container protection platform, VMware Carbon Black Cloud enables customers to operationalise consistent, modern security in AWS and hybrid cloud environments.

VMware Carbon Black Cloud analyse more than one trillion security events per day, proactively uncovering attackers behaviour patterns and empowering defenders to respond and remediate in real-time from anywhere in the world.

Endpoint, workload, and container security capabilities are unified into one console and one agent, so infrastructure and infosec teams have a single, shared source to improve security.

With VMware Carbon Black Cloud, AWS customers benefit from cloud-native endpoint security that combines prevention and automated detection, advanced workload protection for the modern data center, and enterprise-grade container security that provides continuous visibility, enhanced security, and compliance for containerised applications.

Transforming cloud management with CloudHealth

CloudHealth is a cloud management platform that helps AWS customers simplify cloud financial management, streamline cloud operations, and improve cross-organisational collaboration.

With CloudHealth, AWS customers benefit from faster decision-making, better resource utilisation and cost optimisation, and more efficient cloud operations by implementing governance policies to proactively alert and take automated actions within an AWS environment.
"We love the visibility CloudHealth provides for being able to have a single pane of glass into our AWS spend and sharing reporting across teams," says Robert Half senior manager, Cloud Center of Excellence, James Fogerson.

"Senior management really appreciates our focus on cost management with AWS and keeping people on track for managing spend. The reports we can generate are a good way to make sure the team is aware of where the costs are going and agree that those should be the main drivers."
