ClearSky Data announced its support for VMware Cloud on AWS, which delivers a scalable service that allows organizations to migrate and extend their on-premises VMware vSphere-based environments to the AWS Cloud running on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) infrastructure.
As one of the partners to provide backup with native VMware Cloud on AWS integration, ClearSky Data lets VMware Cloud on AWS customers protect all their data in the cloud exactly as they do on-premises – without replication or egress fees, and with on-demand access from anywhere.
VMware Cloud on AWS provides connectivity to the ClearSky Data managed service for backup and disaster recovery (DR) in the cloud.
Customers achieve backup with predictable costs, limitless capacity and access anywhere, while reducing their total cost of ownership (TCO) by more than 50 percent.
Laz Vekiarides, CTO and co-founder of ClearSky Data, said, “ClearSky Data gives VMware Cloud on AWS customers the complete reliability and redundancy they know and trust from their on-premises environments with all of the benefits of cloud-based backup. ClearSky’s fully managed service simplifies backup storage, improves recovery times and natively extends to the cloud, delivering seamless onsite and offsite copies of data, accessible anywhere it’s needed.”
“VMware Cloud on AWS technology partners such as ClearSky enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS services and enable customers to realize new capabilities,” said Kristen Edwards, director, Technology Alliance Partner Program, VMware.
“Solutions such as ClearSky Data enable IT teams to reduce cost, increase efficiency and create operational consistency across cloud environments. We’re excited to work with partners such as ClearSky to enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS capabilities and empower customers with flexibility and choice in solutions that can drive business value.”
ClearSky’s on-demand backup and DR service is enabled through its Cloud Edge appliance, which can be co-located in AWS to provide on-demand primary storage services with built-in offsite backup and disaster recovery.
With a single copy of data that can be accessed anywhere, no egress fees and unlimited capacity, customers can now move their enterprise workloads to VMware Cloud on AWS.
Delivered, sold and supported by VMware and its channel partners as an on-demand service, VMware Cloud on AWS is powered by VMware Cloud Foundation, the unified SDDC platform that integrates vSphere, VMware vSAN and VMware NSX virtualization technologies.
With the same architecture and operational experience on-premises and in the cloud, IT teams can derive business value from use of the AWS and VMware hybrid cloud experience.
