VMware Cloud Sizer

The VMware Cloud Sizer tool helps you to estimate cloud resources required to run various workloads in VMware Cloud. Estimating the resources required to host a given workload within VMware Cloud is a non-trivial task largely dependent on data available for estimation. The service can accurately calculate project utilization and requirements with provided data, supporting various input methodologies and sizing workflows.


VMware Cloud TCO Calculator

Compare the cost of VMware Cloud on AWS to on-premises and various cloud native infrastructures. 31% average savings when compared to an on-premises total cost of ownership (TCO) vs. VMware Cloud on AWS costs (includes migration).
