VMware Cloud on AWS vSAN

#StorageMinute: AWS AZ resiliency powered by vSAN Stretched Clusters


Welcome to the StorageMinute series where we deliver key topics via bite-size content. In this edition, we will demonstrate how Stretched Clusters powered by vSAN deliver on-premises levels of availability and resiliency within the AWS cloud.



One of the primary inhibitors to leveraging public cloud as an extension of existing infrastructure is the need to rethink and at times rearchitect applications to account for cloud failure semantics.  Amazon commonly refers to this process as The 6 R’s. Stretched Clusters within the VMware Cloud on AWS service remove this complex and time-consuming process by providing on-premises levels of availability and resiliency inside the AWS cloud.



How does it work?


This powerful capability is powered by vSAN Stretched Cluster technology. Which enables a single vSphere Cluster to span multiple AWS availability zones. This dramatically reduces the complexity of public cloud by removing the need to undergo costly Refactoring or Replatforming activities.  By leveraging Stretched Clusters, customers can rehost their existing vSphere infrastructure directly inside the AWS fleet; using policy-based management to control what data is being synchronously replicated between availability zones.  With a copy of the data in each AZ, vSphere HA is empowered to recover from any failure using a simple restart. In summary, Stretched Clusters simplify the cloud by providing the same trusted controls and capabilities in addition to the scale and flexibility of the AWS infrastructure.

  1. Admiring tһe harԁ work you put into your website ɑnd detailed inf᧐rmation yoᥙ
    offer. It’s greɑt to cоme acrоss a blog every once in a while that
    isn’t the same oⅼd rehshed іnformation. Fantastic rеad!
    I’ve saved үour site annd I’m including y᧐ur RSS feeds to my Google account.

  2. Of course, all is dependent on the occasion and also the budget.
    But that didn’t help me because my teacher thought I was trying to act smart.
    It is probab a grain of sand that irritates an oyster and
    eventually produces a pearl.

  3. When carrying out an eyelash implant surgical treatment the surgeon should
    supply you with the choice whether you want to be operated under local anesthetic or sedation however usually eyelash implant surgical procedures are completed under
    local anesthetic and takes between 1 and a pair of hours to complete.
    However, although from the leading lash conditioners do contain similar ingredients,
    you will need to verify the formula works via independent,
    clinical testing. There can be a creation that could make your eyelashes grow and addresses all from
    the above stated concerns.

  4. The same substances that trigger your hay fever symptoms could also cause asthma indicators for example difficulty breathing, wheezing
    and chest tightness. There are certain indoor allergens that get active mainly in the
    winter months and have high odds of triggering asthma. Examples
    oof ingredients in such medicines are: Methylsulfonyl methane, vitamin C, vitamin E, Echinacea purpurea, Quercetin, gdape Seed, Stinging nettle, Coleus Forskolin.
