‘Bro Hugs’: VMware And AWS Hold Tighter Hands

VMware and AWS’ strategic relationship became closer than ever this year as the two industry titans drove tighter integration with VMware Cloud on AWS, VMware Cloud on AWS GovCloud and are preparing for VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts and VMware Cloud Foundation for EC2.

In May, AWS channel partners were allowed to start selling VMware Cloud on AWS, which won CRN’s 2018 Products of the Year Award in the hybrid cloud category. Additionally, VMware recently unleashed a new VMware Cloud on AWS Master Services Competency with the goal of getting more VMware partners trained and certified to sell the hybrid cloud solution.

Gelsinger said VMware’s relationship with AWS has done a complete 180 in recent years. “I like to joke about the fact that, five years ago, I stood on stage and said, ‘If you use Amazon, you’re stupid.’ And [AWS CEO] Andy Jassy would stand on stage and say, ‘If you run a data center, you’re stupid,’” said Gelsinger. “Now we’re doing bro hugs at the Re:Invent stage and declaring a joint, hybrid future. We’ve come a long way.”
