The Next Act For VMware Cloud On AWS
Now that VMware Cloud on AWS has been on the market, albeit at limited scale, for a half-year, the two enterprise tech giants behind the groundbreaking partnership are taking the next step to advance its capabilities and reach.
VMware and AWS CEOs, channel leaders and engineers shared information about how the hybrid service is being upgraded and expanded in several videos posted online Wednesday morning. Their channel chiefs and several partners also spoke to CRN about the latest milestones.
VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger said the "industry-changing partnership" the companies forged 15 months ago is "now essential to our cloud strategy."
AWS CEO Andy Jassy said the "customer response to the offering has just been amazing."
The companies are now rolling out the product in Europe, and VMware has released a new partner program around the offering while extending recently added private cloud capabilities to the hybrid service.
