Appeal to Different Customer Tiers for VMware supported Hyperscale Partner Clouds

VMware Cloud Director service Managed Service Offering

Regionally based VMware cloud providers have the advantage of uniquely understanding their local customers’ needs. VMware Cloud Director service empowers them to extend managed or self-service cloud services outside of their data centers while leveraging familiar technologies and skills. VMware cloud providers can open new revenue streams by expanding their existing offerings to SMB and mid-tier customers on VMware Cloud on AWS, Google Cloud VMware Engine and Azure VMware Solution, Oracle Cloud VMware Solutions as well as connecting Cloud Director service to existing on-premises Cloud Director and/or vCenter instances.

Cloud Director service reduces time to provision new virtual data center resources and services and makes multi region expansion simple with the worldwide reach of VMware supported partner hyperscale clouds. VMware Cloud Director service enables cloud providers to leverage VMware Cloud on AWS and/or Google Cloud VMware Engine and/or in multi-tenant modality and enables cloud providers to leverage Azure VMware Solution in Enterprise Multi-Tenancy SDDC endpoints with enhanced VMware NSX-T support, allowing provisioning of custom-sized, tenant-based, isolated, and secure VMware Cloud resources. This ability to service multiple smaller and medium sized tenants on the same infrastructure, offers flexibility to right-size the VMware Cloud environments to meet customer needs and requirements of all customer tiers.Oracle Cloud VMware Solution

VMware Cloud Director service is a container-based SaaS version of the proven VMware Cloud Director on-premises service-delivery platform. The service, available through VMware Cloud Partner Navigator, helps cloud providers gain better economies of scale and generate new value and revenue for their cloud businesses.

Cloud Director service is also available through AWS Resell. AWS Resell for MSPs allows VMware’s partners to purchase VMware Cloud on AWS and add-on services through Amazon Web Services.

Eliminate Challenges for Small and Medium Businesses

  • Economies of Scale: VMware cloud providers have customers of all sizes and need to accommodate the smallest to the largest, whether in public, private or dedicated clouds. Providing efficient resource utilization for a service, but also utilizing 100% of resources where available, results in better economies for cloud providers and customers.
  • Expansion: Some customers struggle to expand their cloud footprint to new geographies and introduce new lines of businesses. They may be hindered by the high investment costs of purchasing new hardware or renting data centers as well as the challenges of meeting local compliance and government requirements. Cloud providers are also often bound by their own geographies and investments, making it hard to accommodate customers with multi-region demands.
  • Agility: IT departments are being asked to bring new solutions to market faster and with greater flexibility. The operational overhead from the ongoing maintenance of a siloed multi-cloud environment can slow down the ability to respond quickly to new business needs.
