It’s no secret that the demands on government IT are growing. Citizens want more from digital services. Agencies adopt new technologies to keep pace and deliver those services, but then new systems create new demands of their own. They create more data; require more compute, networking and storage resources; and they add to the complexity of government networks.
To grapple with this growing sprawl of resource-intensive systems, agencies have turned away from traditional IT models to embrace software-defined data centers (SDDCs). And, as agencies adopt a software-defined data center model, they often also consider moving to public cloud as a way to further increase the flexibility and agility of their IT systems.
But here, other challenges often arise. When an organization pursues cloud environments that don’t match their on-premise investments, they run into a few hurdles. That’s why agencies should instead consider compatible solutions such as VMware’s SDDC on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
This learning path explores the many benefits of deploying VMware Cloud on AWS, as well as the specific use cases for this model within federal agencies, state and local government, and higher education institutions.
