With Broadcom’s acquisition and the shift to a subscription-based licensing model, businesses are facing higher license costs and more frequent audits, pushing them to look for alternative solutions. Many organizations are considering moving their VMware workloads to AWS to benefit from the cloud platform’s scalability and cost-efficiency.

Though migrating to AWS is beneficial, it comes with its own challenges, such as a lack of in-house AWS expertise, tight budgets, and disruption risks.

As an AWS Premier Consulting Partner, Simform has successfully migrated thousands of workloads to AWS, consistently staying on budget and schedule. Our cost optimization strategies combined with a security-focused approach ensure your VMware workloads are migrated cost-efficiently and with minimal disruption to your business operations.

App refactoring and modernization

If modernization is required, our AWS Solution Architects devise a strategy for refactoring VMware applications to AWS native services. This optimizes architecture, enhances scalability performance, and integrates with AWS services.

Pay as you go

Our experts leverage AWS funding programs such as MAP and promotional credits to reduce initial costs. Plus, we use AWS Cost Explorer and Trusted Advisor to monitor and optimize ongoing expenses, ensuring a cost-effective and efficient use of AWS resources.

During execution, we provision AWS infrastructure, configure networks and security, and securely migrate data and applications. Our experts also perform thorough testing to ensure the migrated VMware workloads run efficiently in the new environment.
