Computacenter Offers VMware on AWS

Computacenter is one of only two UK launch partners to offer businesses the option of moving applications in and out of the public cloud following the launch of VMware Cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS) recently.

VMware Cloud on AWS allows businesses to access the same set of technologies they currently use in their own datacentres, and to leverage the existing investments they have in skills and tools in order to consolidate their datacentres, increase flexibility, reduce costs and become more agile.

Kevin Stavers, Director of Platform and Hybrid IT Services at Computacenter, commented “We have been VMware’s top UK partner for many years but this new AWS capability will add huge value to our clients. The ability to integrate VMware seamlessly with other native AWS services served out of the same datacentres will help our clients to architect new services models. We are perfectly placed to not only support these models, but to also make sure that they have the right infrastructure and skills to migrate, optimise and secure these workloads in the cloud.”

VMware has introduced a new VMware on AWS competency that Computacenter has already achieved. This competency ensures Computacenter has the right skills, certifications and capabilities in place to guide businesses through the migration and integration process to drive hybrid cloud adoption and to help customers identify the services that are best suited to run on VMware on AWS, native AWS, or on a combination of both.

Paul Casey, Chief Technologist at Computacenter, added “For Enterprise IT customers, there is a significant degree of complexity and variation of needs for cloud adoption. Different business, cultural and operating factors are dictating the relative start point, technology and cloud direction, and the pace of adoption.”

Over the last 18 months Computacenter has been developing a Hybrid Cloud adoption framework that guides the customer on their cloud adoption journey. This IP will become a key component as Computacenter helps customer leverage VMware Cloud on AWS and other native AWS service offerings.
