VMware and AWS

  • “VMware Cloud on AWS” (TechCrunch):
    • “The service will be operated, sold and supported by VMware (not AWS) but integrate with the rest of AWS’ cloud portfolio (think storage, database, analytics and more).”
  • AWS deal could drive more companies into the cloud (InfoWorld):
    • They keep talking about hybrid cloud, but what does that mean here? Just “we use multiple cloud types/providers,” or one application running across different clouds?
    • “As part of the deal, VMware will be AWS’s preferred private cloud partner and Amazon will be VMware’s preferred partner in the public cloud.”
    • “One of the key differences between this deal and the one VMware announced with IBM in February is that this service is being offered and managed by VMware.”
    • “Interested customers can request access to the service’s private beta starting Thursday, but VMware doesn’t expect the service to be live until early next year. General availability of VMware cloud on AWS will have to wait until even later in 2017.”
  • Brief 451 note.
  • No data in DevOps.
