Why Migrate to AWS with Aligned Technology Group?

May 23, 2024 | Articles, Migration

As a VMware customer, you’re likely facing significant challenges due to the recent Broadcom acquisition and the resulting changes to the VMware Cloud on AWS reseller program. The increased costs and the need to manage your VMware environment directly with Broadcom can be daunting. Aligned Technology Group is here to offer a seamless and cost-effective solution to migrate your workloads natively to AWS.

Cost Savings

One of the most compelling reasons to migrate to AWS is the potential for significant cost savings. By moving away from the skyrocketing prices associated with VMware renewals, you can take advantage of AWS’s competitive pricing and financial incentives. AWS offers substantial credits for partners migrating VMware Cloud clients to AWS:

  • Up to $400 in Credits per VM: Migrate 80 or more VMs and receive $400 in credits per VM. For 40 to 79 VMs, the offer is $200 per VM.
  • AWS Migration Acceleration Program (MAP): Apply for additional funding with MAP, which guarantees up to $460,000 in migration credits. Special VMware-specific funding includes up to $500,000 ARR for businesses that become AWS native, with a 10% higher funding amount for VMware-specific migrations.

Performance and Scalability

AWS’s robust infrastructure is designed to enhance the performance and scalability of your applications. Whether you need to scale up quickly during peak times or ensure high availability and reliability for your critical workloads, AWS has the infrastructure and services to support your needs.

Advanced Features

Migrating to AWS opens the door to a wide range of services and features that can transform and modernize your IT environment. From machine learning and artificial intelligence to advanced analytics and IoT services, AWS provides the tools you need to innovate and stay ahead of the competition.
