DXC Technology launches pay-per-use VMware cloud consumption model on AWS

By Shannon Williams, 27 Jul 2021

DXC Technology has announced the launch of a new pay-per-use cloud consumption service model as part of its hybrid cloud and multi-cloud offering, expanding upon its partnerships with VMware and Amazon Web Services.

The first-of-its-kind in the Asia Pacific region, this integrated, scalable and more secure platform provides customers with a bridge from their on-premises environments to the cloud with no minimum term or volume commitments.  

DXC customers from Australia and New Zealand will be able to migrate and extend their existing VMware environments to AWS while keeping their mission-critical infrastructure on premises.

"Ninety percent of businesses see cloud as central to becoming more resilient, seeking technical and commercial innovation to help them achieve business efficiencies," says Seelan Nayagam, president Asia Pacific, DXC Technology.

"With this new platform, our customers will be able to modernise from the core and migrate their workloads seamlessly to the cloud, taking advantage of scalability and cost benefits."

Uma Thana Balasingam, vice president partner and commercial sales, VMware APJ, says, "As our customers modernise their applications and transform to digital businesses, they are harnessing the power of the cloud to deliver a high-quality experience for their employees and customers.

"Agile collaboration with our ecosystem is key to the success of these transformations and provides opportunities for our partners to accelerate their revenue and profitability around our solutions," she says. 

"With DXC's new Multi-Tenant VMware Cloud on AWS service, businesses gain the expertise and flexibility to choose how they move from their on-premises environments, and scale when needed. We look forward to working with DXC to help customers benefit from this innovation."

VMware Cloud on AWS brings VMware's enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Centre software to AWS and enables customers to run production applications across VMware vSphere-based private, public, and hybrid cloud environments with optimised access to AWS services.  

DXC is the first VMware partner in region to offer this multi-tenant platform at scale, which will support customers on their cloud migration journey, datacentre exits, modernisation of existing applications, and disaster recovery.

"AWS is pleased to work with DXC to make VMware Cloud on AWS more accessible to tens of thousands of smaller organisations, helping them to modernise and transform faster and at a fraction of the cost," says Corrie Briscoe, director of AWS Partners & Alliances, Amazon Web Services Singapore.

"DXC has innovated on behalf of customers to offer VMware Cloud on AWS, accelerating transformation, reducing risk, cost, and disruption for the business," she says. 

"I am incredibly excited about the launch of this unique service, which is now available to customers in Australia and New Zealand," Nayagam adds.

"This service expands our partnerships with VMware and AWS and combines our expertise and deep engineering capabilities to add yet another differentiator in our Enterprise Technology Stack."
