VMware Cloud on Intel® Architecture

  • VMware and Intel keep IT front-and-center in the quest for rapid digital business transformation, by providing IT organizations a clear path to digital transformation with consistent infrastructure and operations.
  • Intel and VMware’s integrated technologies deliver chip-to-cloud PC management and security capabilities to support today’s anywhere workforce.
  • VMware Cloud on AWS lets you choose from a wide variety of compute, memory, and storage options to “right size” your cloud instances to your particular workload.
  • The AWS EC2 i3.en instance featuring the 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors deliver 4x the raw storage capacity at roughly half the cost per GB of storage per host compared to previous offerings, making them ideal for disaster recovery and other storage-demanding use cases.
  • The AWS EC2 i3.en instance runs with more compute cores and more memory, allowing you to host larger and more powerful VMs.
  • Selecting AWS EC2 i3.en instances allows you to add more vCPUs to achieve greater overall database performance per instance, benefit from more processing power that can handle more orders per minute.
  • VMware also has gen-to-gen compatibility with Intel processors – meaning it can run on older Intel processors up through the modern Intel Xeon Scalable processors to combine both performance benefits and cost savings – whether it is on-prem or in the cloud.
  • The combination of VMware Cloud Foundation and Intel Xeon processors lets organizations take advantage of familiar features such as vSphere vMotion for live migrations of VMs from on-prem to cloud.
  • In partnership with leading Cloud Service Providers such as AWS, these solutions make moving to a hybrid public cloud environment simpler to manage and more predictable while enabling the latest technology innovations.
