Accelerate Cloud Migrations with
VMware Cloud on AWS
Hybrid Cloud Migration
IT organizations today are accelerating their use of public and hybrid cloud as a result of demands from their business to support company initiatives. Retailers are looking to drive unique customer experiences with augmented or virtual reality, manufacturers are looking for better ways to scale capacity to meet production demands, and many organizations are simply looking to reduce cost & resources associated with managing physical infrastructure in order to focus on delivering applications that run the business and drive profitability.
Converge Technology Solutions accelerates organizations’ cloud migrations by leveraging VMware Cloud on AWS, a jointly engineered hybrid cloud by VMware and AWS.
