Ensono to Offer Managed Services on VMware Cloud on AWS

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

Ensono, a leading hybrid IT services provider, today announced it will provide customers a managed services offering for VMware Cloud on AWS and has achieved the VMware Cloud on AWS Solution Competency. VMware Cloud on AWS delivers VMware’s software-defined data center (SDDC) via the AWS Cloud, allowing customers to run applications across operationally consistent VMware vSphere-based private, public, and hybrid cloud environments, with optimized access to a broad range of AWS services.

The VMware Cloud Provider Program MSP model is for partners that offer managed services and consulting services, and includes tools, training, and expertise required for partners to develop and deliver managed services for VMware Cloud on AWS.  The VMware Cloud on AWS Solution Competency provides the sales and technical training partners need to help customers be successful with hybrid cloud solutions and services.

Ensono Managed VMware Cloud™ on AWS enables clients to digitally transform at their own speed, creating a roadmap for the future while still being able to leverage existing applications and public cloud services in sync. The new offering will also meet clients’ geographic needs by capitalizing on the extensive global footprint of VMware Cloud-enabled AWS data centers.

“Ensono’s mission is to meet clients where they are in their digital transformation journeys and to work with them on a future-ready strategy,” said Oliver Presland, vice president of global product management at Ensono. “Ensono Managed VMware Cloud on AWS empowers clients to transform at their own pace with a low-risk migration to public cloud.”

Public clouds enable customers to gain flexibility and speed to respond to changing business needs, accelerate innovation, and align costs to business requirements. Customers are also recognizing the benefit of having public clouds integrate and work seamlessly with on-premises infrastructure in order to take advantage of existing teams, skillsets, tools and processes.

VMware Cloud on AWS enables customers to add value to their business in the AWS cloud, while maximizing their VMware investments, without the need to buy new hardware, or refactor applications.

Enterprise customers can work with partners such as Ensono Managed VMware Cloud on AWS to be their trusted advisors as they move towards the emerging hybrid cloud model. Ensono brings industry and technical expertise to customers to help them quickly execute on their digital transformation initiatives using VMware Cloud on AWS.
