Controlling AWS with vCenter – HotLink Briefing Note
Many companies are finding workloads that are much more appropriate for the infinite scalability and cost predictability of the public cloud. The challenges come when you consider that the local data center and the public cloud have two completely different sets of management tools, and moving workloads between them is not that easy. HotLink offerings allow companies to use their existing vCenter tools to manage AWS and migrate workloads between AWS and their local VMware environment and offer a lot of possibilities across a wide range of use cases.
