VMware And AWS

Virtualization leader VMware and cloud services giant Amazon Web Services unveiled their hybrid cloud partnership in late 2016 and launched the service in late 2017, making VMware Cloud available on AWS. Since then the two companies have continued to expand the relationship in offered services and in how they work with the channel.

In March VMware introduced a professional certification for the joint hybrid cloud product, designed to incentivize partners and expand channel expertise in VMware Cloud on AWS. That move comes as VMware and AWS see their channel ecosystems merge around the joint service.

On the technology side, the vendors have provided new migration and disaster recovery services to VMware Cloud on AWS. The migration service allows customers to migrate workloads from on-premises VMware clusters to the cloud system. VMware also upgraded its Cost Insight tool for gaining visibility into cloud costs to support VMware Cloud on AWS.

The two companies are expanding VMware Cloud on AWS beyond North America into Europe.
