How VMware Cloud on AWS completely changes the art of what is possible for Managed Services

VMware Cloud on AWS (VMC) is a game changing cloud service that enables a wide range of use cases for service providers by combining the power of VMware SDDC and native AWS services. Previously, these use cases were either unavailable or required a large effort in terms of time and capital investment.

    “Monthly Uptime Percentage” is calculated by subtracting from 100% the percentage of minutes during the month in which Amazon EC2 or Amazon EBS, as applicable, was in the state of “Region Unavailable” “Region Unavailable” means that more than one Availability Zone in which you are running an instance, within the same Region, is “Unavailable” to you.”
