VMware, AWS Team Up for Hybrid Cloud Service

cloud-08VMware and Amazon Web Services, Inc. are teaming up for what the partners call a strategic alliance meant to build and deliver a “seamlessly integrated hybrid offering” that will give customers the full software-defined data center (SDDC) experience “from the leader in the private cloud, running on the world’s most popular, trusted, and robust public cloud.”

That’s quite a bold pledge. Nonetheless, we’re told that VMware Cloud on AWS will enable customers to run applications across VMware vSphere-based private, public, and hybrid cloud environments.

“Delivered, sold, and supported by VMware as an on-demand, elastically scalable service, VMware Cloud on AWS will allow VMware customers to use their existing VMware software and tools to leverage AWS’s global footprint and breadth of services, including storage, databases, analytics, and more,” a joint announcement reads.
