New Era Of VMware Cloud on AWS

VMware answered channel concerns this year regarding the high price tag of entry for VMware Cloud on AWS by cutting the price in half. Slashing the cost of the offering opens the door for partners to penetrate the SMB and midmarket market. "This lower entry point is a very powerful driver for adoption of this platform," said David Klee, founder and chief architect at Heraflux Technologies, a Lincoln, Maine-based VMware partner. "The previous price point was a substantial barrier to entry, as leveraging other mechanisms to migration and platform a given workload were more cost effective. This new price point puts the platform on par with other options and improves the attractiveness of the platform."

Additionally, VMware launched several new robust capabilities for the cloud service including a high-capacity storage option, instant data center evacuation with live migration of thousands of virtual machines (VMs) and licensing optimization for enterprise applications. On the licensing front, VMware created new custom CPU core count capabilities, allowing customers to specify the number of CPU cores they need, which reduces the cost of running mission-critical applications that are licensed per CPU core.
