Many Australian businesses have embraced Cloud computing and are reaping the benefits of reduced costs, streamlined operations and increased agility. For some organisations, however, the complexity of modernising existing on-premises IT infrastructure can be substantial. The pace of Cloud adoption may be hampered by the need to maintain legacy systems, minimise disruption, develop new skills, replace operational tools & security models, and the challenges of organisational change.

This report investigates how organisations running VMware environments are utilising VMware Cloud on AWS to accelerate and de-risk the transition to Cloud. By adopting a Relocate Migration strategy, these organisations have mitigated disruption to business-critical applications while facilitating rapid bulk migration to AWS. This approach drives business value by minimising the effort and risk of IT modernisation while accelerating time to cloud transformation.
