Optimize Virtual Machine Configurations in VMware Cloud on AWS for Enterprise Applications Workload

We are excited to announce the release of an online paper discussing Virtual Machine (VM) optimizations in VMware Cloud on AWS for Enterprise Application Workload. This information is of great value for all IT practitioners designing, deploying and managing enterprise application workload on VMware Cloud on AWS.

VMware Cloud on AWS Design

This document aims to help enterprises to optimize the configuration of a Virtual Machine (VM) hosting enterprise application workloads on VMware Cloud on AWS. Optimization recommendations provided should be considered for all performance demanding workloads on VMware Cloud on AWS, with Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle databases, and Java workloads being the referenced one. This document is not a replacement of much more detailed per-application guidelines, but rather serve as a starting point for performance optimizations of your workload on hybrid cloud platform.

The list of configurations items  highlights the most important VM settings (including CPU, Memory, Network and Storage resources) where the difference between your on-premises environment and VMware Cloud on AWS might directly influence application performance. Ensure to recheck and adjust if needed the relevant part of the VM configuration after migration to VMware Cloud on AWS to make the best of your new hybrid cloud platform.

Check the full paper, titled Optimize Virtual Machine Configurations in VMware Cloud on AWS for Enterprise Applications Workload, for all the details.

The document is the result of great collaboration between different teams and would not be possible without the help from my colleagues:
