As VMC is essentially VMware as-a-Service, service level agreements (SLAs) come into play. One of the SMC features associated with vSAN is the number of errors to be tolerated (T/A) based on the size of a VMC cluster. To meet alS requirements, each VMC group of 5 or smaller hosts must have a minimum ftT-1 and host clusters must have a minimum FTT-2. Depending on the VMC application case, it`s essential to keep the cluster project in mind, especially when you`re mingding VM to VMC. Before SDDC version 1.10, the standard vSAN policy in VMC 1 was a mistake – RAID-1 (Mirroring). If your cluster expanded beyond 5 hosts, an administrator would have to ensure that the cluster policy was manually changed to 2 bugs – RAID-6 (Erasure Coding) to manage the VMC ALS. With a new feature released in mid-2020, for the 1.10-plus versions of VMC, the cluster directive will be automatically set to RAID-1 or RAID-6, depending on the size of the cluster. If a cluster evolves manually or beyond Elastic DRS beyond 5 hosts or they recreate a SDDC with 6 host from the base, the standard vSAN cluster policy is automatically configured for RAID-6. This is an excellent function, as these parameters can be easily overlooked while they are in the middle of a large-scale migration. The relationship we have with AWS is a mutual and strategic partnership that goes both ways.
AWS is VMware`s preferred public cloud partner for all VMware vSphere-based workloads. Conversely, VMware Cloud on AWS is the preferred public cloud service recommended by AWS for all VMware vSphere-based workloads. For more than 4 years, VMware has been developing, selling, operating and supporting hybrid cloud solutions together. This privileged status is a confirmation of the maturity of VMware Cloud`s partnership and customer attraction on the AWS service, developed, operated and jointly supported by the two companies. In the AWS relationship, there are two distinct areas. The first is that VMware Cloud on AWS is the only cloud utility provided, operated and supported by VMware. In addition, as a strategic and privileged partner, there is a deeper level of engineering and joint go to market investment that we have with AWS.
