Most enterprises rely on VMware to run applications in their vSphere-based private clouds. Many of these same customers also run applications on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Increasingly, customers have asked both companies to make it easier to run their existing on-premises environments alongside AWS, using the VMware software and tools they’ve come to rely on.

With the recent announcement of VMware Cloud on AWS, the strategic alliance between VMware and AWS formed in response to this obvious demand is beginning to bear fruit.

Currently in Technology Preview, VMware Cloud on AWS is a vSphere-based cloud service that will bring VMware’s enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software to the AWS cloud.

Zones will begin offering VMware Cloud on AWS in mid-2017, with pricing available closer to the general availability date. Continue reading
