VMware on AWS - Safe Hands

Posted on Mar 12, 2018

I meet with dozens of customers every month and there are several things that ring true for most of these organisations:

  • They are usually heavily virtualised on VMware.
  • They remain steadfastly on-premise for most application workload.
  • Most have implemented some form of off-the-shelf “Cloud” solution such as Office 365, Salesforce, Mimecast etc.
  • Most organisations have some pressure from the business to increase Cloud utilisation.
  • Despite 3), IaaS is still something that is treated with apprehension.

Now, there are many reasons for point #5. ‘Security’ is often cited (usually fairly lazily - I’ll defer to my Security Business Manager on that one). The more common excuses:

  • Lack of understanding of Public Cloud Platforms
  • Concerns around Cost/Change Management
  • Fear of the unknown
  • Lack of training budget/bandwidth to upskill

Does any of this sound familiar? Am I identifying a few home truths?
