Andy Jassy’s 10 Boldest Statements At AWS re:Invent 2020

‘If you look in the enterprise technology space, there are some providers who are competitor-focused,’ Jassy said. ‘They look at what their competitors are doing, and they try to fast-follow and one-up them. We have a competitor like that across the lake from us here in Washington.’

VMware Cloud On AWS

Most of the world has virtualized on top of VMware, so AWS started working with VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger and his team on how to build VMware Cloud on AWS, which launched initially in 2017, Jassy said.

“That allows customers to use those VMware tools they’ve been using for many years to manage their on-premises infrastructure and manage their infrastructure on AWS,” Jassy said. “This is a very unusual collaboration. There’s no other managed service that VMware runs with another cloud provider. There’s none that have the functionality and capability of this VMware Cloud on AWS. It’s not just that both VMware and AWS have its engineering teams and its product teams closely tied at the hip, but also our field teams and our partner teams work together with customers. It’s a very unusual partnership, and it’s gaining a lot of momentum and a lot of steam.”

VMware Cloud on AWS customers include S&P Global, PennyMac, Johnson & Johnson, Philips, Palantir and the Scottish government.

“You also see the growth (in) almost double the amount of nodes year over year,” Jassy said. “IDC just had a report that showed over five years, you get a 500 percent return on investment. There’s a lot of momentum in VMware Cloud on AWS, and it’s really, really handy as you’re moving from on-premises infrastructure to the cloud.”
