Custom Thumbnail Image for video

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.

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 Cloud on AWS. VMware Cloud Director service enables cloud providers to leverage VMware Cloud on AWS in multi-tenant modality 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 on AWS environments to meet customer needs and requirements of all customer tiers.

The new 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.

VMware Cloud Director service is now Globally Available.

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.
