Leaving VMware? Let’s plan your next step with AWS cloud

VMware’s new owner Broadcom has put a stop to partner programs meaning that starting 30 April 2024, customers won’t be able to purchase VMware cloud on AWS anymore.

These changes are challenging but with the right planning, you can turn this setback into an opportunity to fully leverage the cloud’s potential. We can help you in planning your exit from VMware and strategising how to do an AWS Cloud migration with our complimentary, 1-day assessment.

VMware Cloud FAQs

Broadcom’s takeover of VMware and the following termination of reseller rights mean that VMC-A customers will no longer be able to get new subscriptions or renew their existing ones through AWS. The same applies to associated add-ons.

Starting from 30 April 2024, customers will not be able to purchase additional VMC-A subscriptions, renewals, and add-ons from AWS. 

Currently, there’s no official word yet from Broadcom about their plans for VMC-A. AWS and Broadcom have existing contracts in place that guarantee the continued operation of VMC-A until May 2026. AWS is committed to working with Broadcom to make sure that these agreements are upheld to provide continuity and stability for customers during this transition period.

Starting 30 April 2024, AWS will no longer be able to sell the VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts solution.

There’s been no official update about the discontinuation of VMC-A service but rest assured that we will keep you informed about potential changes to the VMC-A offering. 

If you’ve purchased VMC-A subscriptions through AWS, your billing process will likely remain unchanged. But for customers who are typically billed directly by Broadcom for VMC-A, there might be changes affecting billing. We advise these customers to contact Broadcom directly to learn more about these potential changes.

AWS is committed to finding the best solutions for any remaining commitments you have with VMC-A, from looking into different technical options and possible incentives to help you transition smoothly.

If you’re a VMC-A customer and have existing commitments, we encourage you to get in touch with us so we can guide you through the process and discuss the available options for a seamless transition. 

We understand that you may be experiencing uncertainty given these changes. As an AWS Premier Partner, our priority is to ensure that you’re well-informed about alternative cloud infrastructure options during this transition. 

We recommend starting with an assessment of your VMC infrastructure to evaluate your resource usage, application dependencies, and third-party licensing. An assessment can also uncover potential cost savings and operational efficiencies. We offer a complimentary one-day VMC assessment that can help you make an informed decision. 

As an AWS Premier Partner with a focus on modernisation, migration, and security, DNX Solutions can offer hands-on support to customers during the planning and execution of VMware workload migrations to AWS. You can reach out to us for a VMware assessment to get a better idea about what cloud migration entails.
