Azure VMware Solution (AVS) - 3 Week - Proof of Concept

Coretek Services

Coretek’s Smart Enterprise team will lead your organization to progress at your own pace to move or extend on-premises VMware environments to Azure.

Coretek will help you invest in Azure strategically with VMware workloads to meet your business goals. The first 30 days of AVS in Azure is free!

AVS Quick Start Includes

  • A workshop to envision planned architecture, security & understand broad integration and connection points.
  • A finalized design of VMware in Azure and Pipeline deployment for proof of concept.
  • Deployment of one Azure VMware Solution Cluster consisting of three Azure Bare-metal hosts, one VCSA, one NSX-T Gateway.
  • POC is deployed via Coretek approved architectural patterns so that we can demonstrate best practices that do not come out of the box.
  • Azure resources are authorized to interact with each other using Managed Identities.
  • All secrets are populated in an Azure Key Vault, ensuring that no secrets are unsecured in code or elsewhere.
  • Connect AVS cluster in Azure to Customer Gateway via ExpressRoute or VPN.
  • A demonstration of one Virtual Machine Migration from on-prem vSphere cluster to AVS vSphere cluster.

Business Outcomes

  • Gain Speed and Scale - Built-in continuity, speed, and scale with modern, managed Azure infrastructure.
  • Leverage Existing Investments - Leverage your existing VMware investments, skills, and tools. Maintain operational consistency with familiar technology including vSphere, HCX, NSX, and vSAN.
  • Azure Services Integration - Enhance your workloads with the Azure native management, security, and services.

Quick Start Assumptions

  • Customer is responsible for Azure consumption costs after 30 days and will enable connectivity to the data sources required.
  • Deployment of POC will be in a Non-Production Azure environment.
  • Customer has reasonably secured the Azure subscription to support any sensitive data.
  • Cloud Adoption Framework GAP analysis is a later phase, not included in POC.
