AWS Outposts GM: ‘Off-The-Charts’ Interest In Hybrid Cloud Service

‘It really has the potential to help open up new avenues for us and help customers accelerate their cloud migrations by filling this hole that was really difficult for us to address before for all the workloads that need to remain on premises,’ says Joshua Burgin, general manager of AWS Outposts.

Were these AWS Outposts Ready products developed specifically for Outposts or are they existing ones that have been retrofitted?

The good news is that most of these are existing products in one form or another. They’re products that are already part of our (AWS) Marketplace and our APN, where they can run on AWS in our regions. And, in some of the cases, like when I think about Veritas (Technologies) or HashiCorp or Sisense or ScyllaDB, which is a NoSQL database company, these are people that not only have cloud solutions, but they also have on prem solutions already. This is the good news for them.

This is why I think we were able to launch with so many partners and, actually, we’re launching this ahead of our original plan for later this year.

The reason that they were able to launch it so quickly is that the Outpost really is kind of the best of both of those worlds. In many ways, it appears like the other on prem hardware and software that they’re familiar with, where they’re already supporting it. And then the other way is, it uses some of the same AWS APIs for EC2 (Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute), for EBS (Amazon Elastic Block Store). Any of the providers that are either working on prem or using AWS, some of them have been able to qualify their solution in as little as a few days with not a lot of engineering effort.
