LANCASTER, Pa. (PRWEB) October 18, 2018
Summit Technology Group (“STG”) today announced the general availability of their financial services cloud framework built atop VMware Cloud running on AWS. VMware Cloud on AWS delivers VMware’s software-defined data center (SDDC) via the AWS Cloud, allowing customers to run applications across operationally consistent VMware vSphere-based private, public, and hybrid cloud environments, with optimized access to a broad range of AWS services.
STG has a unique focus on helping Banks and Credit Unions make the transition toward securely leveraging public cloud resources, while ensuring its customers do not have to go through a costly application refactoring process. “In many cases, our customers do not have the ability to change their business applications to work natively in cloud environments, the solution set we have put together allows organizations to transition into AWS very rapidly, while still maintaining the VMware management framework that has served our clients well for many years,” said Ben Wallace a Partner with Summit.
“In addition, we have added a governance and security framework to the solution that provides our customers unique reporting regarding FFIEC and NIST compliance. We want to ensure our financial institutions can not only operate in the cloud but do so with a higher level of security than is possible using local datacenter resources. Most Banks and Credit Unions will never be able to operate datacenters at the scale and efficiency of VMware or Amazon – our cloud framework will make it easier for Bank and Credit Union CIOs to begin the transition to Cloud,” stated Wallace.
“We are pleased to see Summit Technology Group deliver a managed services offering for VMware Cloud on AWS, and achieve the new VMware Cloud on AWS Solution Competency. With this, Summit Technology Group can help customers within their niche industry focus accelerate cloud adoption and migration, modernize their data center environments and increase IT efficiency,” said Geoff Thompson, senior director, Service Provider Programs, VMware.
Summit Technology Group will be holding a special evening workshop at the American Bankers Association Annual Convention on October 22nd, 2018 to demo this technology. Discounted pricing will be available to early adopters. Please visit http://www.bankers.cloud to register for the event.
