Organizations migrating to a public cloud often face the same challenge: a major architectural variation between various base components such as monitoring and storage. VMware Cloud on AWS (Amazon Web Services) is committed to delivering steady software defined data center (SDDC) components into the public cloud. Businesses can easily leverage the adaptability of these programs while providing a customer experience similar to real-time ecosystems.

VMware Cloud on AWS controls the same implicit guideline and tools as an on-site vSphere implementation, empowering consumers to prevent complicated application design changes to SQL Server workloads.

What is VMware Cloud on AWS?

VMware Cloud on AWS is a selling service that allows businesses to run applications across vSphere-based cloud environments with entry to a comprehensive assortment of AWS services. The service combines: vSphere, VMware vSANTM and VMware NSX along with VMware vCenter board, and is enhanced to work on committed, flexible AWS architectures. The flow of VMware cloud on AWS allows businesses to achieve low expectancy admittance to local AWS features, e.g., Lambda and S3 storage.

VMware Cloud on AWS is controlled using the same set of tools used to operate VMware environments. This decreases the tension of shifting to the public cloud by mitigating architectural constrictions and enabling security experts to manage the dashboard. The same components are used on-premises and in the cloud.

SQL Server Running VMware Cloud on AWS

SQL Server working with VMware Cloud on AWS is an uncomplicated process. Systematizing the SQL Server implementation allows for reliable settings across all your ecosystems. Systematizing also makes troubleshooting executions matters simpler by rejecting essential design challenges. When running VMware Cloud on AWS, the storage space is limited to the hosts.

Since storage on VMware Cloud on AWS host is restricted, users must contemplate the idea of native AWS systems to store and file their backups. If using a third-party backup solution from a partner, then multiple options can be accessible on VMware Cloud on AWS.

The capability to host a cluster on the public cloud without any third-party gears is a very distinctive ability of VMware Cloud on AWS. It offers security architects flexibility when selecting the best layout to run SQL Server assignments on hybrid ecosystems. Users can migrate an existing SQL server cluster without reconfiguring and then shift to a stronger AGs configuration or maintain the shared cluster configuration and resume to use SQL Server Standard licenses.

VMware Cloud on AWS delivers increased flexibility and improved design choices for businesses looking to host obtainable SQL Server solutions on cloud architectures.

ThreatModeler to Secure Your VMware Cloud on AWS

ThreatModeler, the number one automated threat modeling platform, can help you secure your cloud AWS infrastructure. ThreatModeler is ideal for cloud native applications due to its power to scale across thousands of threat models while providing security-related information.

Using the Visual, Agile, Simple Threat modeling methodology with process flow diagrams, programmers and security teams can design components and communication connectors to identify security threats. Users can then assign security requirements to lessen the likelihood that an architecture will be compromised by cyber attackers.

ThreatModeler has taken former time-consuming, manual processes and automated them, to integrate with cloud providers such as AWS and Microsoft Azure. With its full integration with AWS, users can save time and costs in building a more secure environment. To learn more about how to leverage ThreatModeler to improve the security posture of your cloud infrastructure, book a demo to speak to a ThreatModeler expert today.
