DENVER, Aug. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Faction, the leading Multi-Cloud Platform as a Service provider, headquartered in Denver, CO, is aligning with VMware to enable production-grade, cloud attached storage for VMware Cloud on AWS deployments.  Faction's Cloud Control VolumesTM (CCVTM) provides a scalable storage platform for VMware Cloud on AWS customers needing additional storage capacity. 

With CCV, a cloud attached storage solution, Faction enables customers to augment their VMware Cloud on AWS Software-Defined Data Centers with additional datastores that scale up independently. Supported by patented high-speed network fabric to the AWS environment, Faction CCVs are just milliseconds from customer VMware Cloud on AWS environments. This performant storage augmentation solution supports disaster recovery, data backup and production storage augmentation for VMware Cloud on AWS customers, making it ideal for overcoming storage capacity and scaling challenges with high-performance flash, or ensuring better data protection by keeping a copy on low-cost persistent storage.

GenPro, a transportation logistics company, used VMware Cloud on AWS to provide infinite scale for their Disaster Recovery solution with Faction.  With ongoing replication policies targeting VMware Cloud on AWS, GenPro is ready to move production workloads immediately in the event of a disaster.  VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM) automates the recovery process and prioritizes which virtual machines are restarted in a recovery, while Faction's CCV solution provides pre-configured, cloud attached storage via AWS Direct Connect to the VMware Cloud on AWS environment. 

"As we looked at VMware Cloud on AWS to provide us a flexible, scalable solution that was compatible with our existing VMware investments, we were glad to have Faction as a partner in the journey," said Ari Weinstock, Director of IT for GenPro. "Faction's unique expertise in managing VMware environments, combined with their cloud networking expertise and Cloud Control Volumes, made for a solution that fit perfectly."

Faction's Cloud Control Volumes brings an unprecedented solution to the market that enables hybrid cloud deployments and supports Enterprise multi-cloud deployments. By partnering with VMware, Faction provides the much-needed ingredient in a distributed multi-cloud architecture that protects IT investments and promotes pragmatic cloud migrations that leave the customer in the driver seat.

"VMware Cloud on AWS brings VMware's enterprise-class SDDC technology to the AWS Cloud, and enables customers to run production applications across VMware-based private, public and hybrid cloud environments," said Mark Lohmeyer, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud Platform Business Unit, VMware. "Faction has been an amazing go-to-market partner, combining managed services with VMware Cloud on AWS to help customers extend existing data centers, move operations entirely to the cloud, and better safeguard their organizations with critical DR capabilities. Faction's Cloud Control Volumes allow IT teams to reduce costs and increase agility by providing flexible storage options for their VMware Cloud on AWS environments."
