VMware Cloud on AWS

Limited time price promotions for VMware Cloud on AWS

Post updated March 15, 2022

VMware Cloud on AWS has been helping our customers accelerate their hybrid cloud journey since its launch in 2017.  Not only have we extended the benefits of proven VMware enterprise capabilities to the AWS Cloud, we have also delivered a strong economic value compared to the alternatives of staying on a traditional on-premises infrastructure or moving to traditional public cloud instances. 

We have worked with thousands of customers and validated hundreds of TCO assessments with them. On average, we can save our customers approximately 30% versus staying on-premises on their traditional 3-tier architecture. We have also commissioned 3rd party analysts from Forrester and IDC to interview our customers. In 2019, Forrester has found that a typical customer saves 59% on infrastructure and operating costs[1] by moving to a VMware Cloud on AWS.  A 2020 IDC study has shown that VMware Cloud on AWS customers were achieving average 351% 3-year return on investment along with significant improvements in application performance and reduction in unplanned downtime[2].

Importantly, we have also provided a compelling cost advantage compared to traditional cloud instances. When our customers have done an apples-to-apples comparison accounting for the enterprise capabilities included in VMware Cloud on AWS by default, they have found that VMware Cloud on AWS environment is more cost -effective than traditional cloud instances.  And VMware Cloud on AWS customers can achieve a higher return on investment by maximizing the utilization of their cloud resources —  the same value that vSphere has been delivering for years on-premises. And don’t forget about costs of retooling, re-platforming, and retraining to move vSphere workloads to non-vSphere public clouds. Those costs are largely eliminated with VMware Cloud on AWS.

To make the economic value even more compelling, on our 4-year anniversary of the service, we are excited to announce a new pricing promotion for VMware Cloud on AWS for the net new customers- Low cost starter pricing (20% additional discount) for 2 &3 i3.metal and i3en.metal hosts.
