As global workloads accelerate (160 million today to 596 million by 2030), the need for greater agility and global deployment options have driven public cloud to be increasingly more attractive to healthcare organizations. They view public clouds as a way to gain the flexibility and speed to respond to changing needs, accelerate innovation and align costs to usage requirements by managing upfront expenses, operational support and TCO.

But before reaping the benefits of public cloud, healthcare organizations need to successfully move there. This is easier said than done. The first step is often the hardest, which is making the decision to move to the cloud at all. Once the decision is made, complexity abounds as payors and providers struggle to adapt and migrate applications to run in a cloud environment. If you’re considering migrating your applications, understand the challenges, and choose the right solution to fit your needs.

The Solution: VMware Cloud on AWS. Helping our customers seamlessly migrate and extend their VMware vSphere-based environments to VMware Cloud on AWS—without incurring unnecessary risks, costs or downtime—is our priority
