CloudCheckr Announces Migrate for VMware Cloud on AWS

CloudCheckr, the leading enterprise cloud management platform, today announced CloudCheckr Migrate for VMware is available to customers of VMware Cloud on AWS. Launched today with initial availability in AWS US West (Oregon) region, VMware Cloud on AWS brings together VMware's enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software and elastic, bare-metal infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to give organizations consistent operating model and application mobility for private and public cloud. CloudCheckr Migrate for VMware Migrate delivers free configuration optimization to customers of VMware Cloud on AWS.

Using Migrate in CloudCheckr for VMware, enterprise IT staff can simplify cloud configurations. With the Migrate feature, they can easily calculate the optimal configurations for running VMware vSphere® in the public cloud, aligning to any organization's needs. The tool converts data center specifications into comparable clusters running the same workload on specialized instances within AWS. This outputs expected utilization levels for CPU, storage and memory, which shows the anticipated monthly AWS spend of any given configuration. This information equips VMware users to make critical cloud deployment decisions.

"When making decisions on how to configure your cloud ecosystem, there's nothing more critical than data," said Aaron Newman, CEO and co-founder at CloudCheckr. "We built Migrate to place ideal cloud configuration details right into the hands of VMware users."

VMware Cloud on AWS technology partners enable customers to deploy the same proven solutions seamlessly in both the public and private cloud. VMware simplifies the deployment and eliminates the need for partners to refactor solutions for VMware Cloud on AWS. If a partner solution works on-premises in a VMware vSphere environment, it will easily support VMware Cloud on AWS. VMware technology partners complement and enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS services capabilities and enable customers to realize new capabilities.

"VMware Cloud on AWS provides customers a seamlessly integrated hybrid cloud offering that gives customers the SDDC experience from the leader in private cloud, running on the leading public cloud provider, AWS," said Mark Lohmeyer, vice president, products, Cloud Platforms Business Unit, VMware. "Solutions such as CloudCheckr Migrate for VMware enable IT teams to reduce cost, increase efficiency, and create operational consistency across cloud environments. We're excited to work with partners such as CloudCheckr to enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS capabilities and empower customers with flexibility and choice in solutions that can drive business value."
