9. VMware Cloud Foundation Comes To Google Cloud; New VMware Cloud on AWS Competitor is Born

VMware branched out significantly on the public cloud partnership front in 2019. One of the biggest news of the year came this summer when Google and VMware executives met on stage to unveil that Google Cloud will begin supporting VMware workloads.

“Both Google Cloud and VMware believe that customers want to run workloads in the cloud that works best for them,” said Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian at the time. “Customers have asked us to provide broad support for VMware, and now with Google Cloud VMware Solution by CloudSimple, our customers will be able to run VMware vSphere-based workloads in GCP.”

Google Cloud VMware Solution by CloudSimple leverages VMware Cloud Foundation infrastructure software running on Google Cloud Platform (GCP). IT startup CloudSimple provides technology that makes the running of VMware workloads natively on GCP possible.

In a move to potentially turn up the heat on its main competitor AWS, Google acquired CloudSimple in November. Google Cloud VMware Solution by CloudSimple is similar to VMware Cloud on AWS, which allows VMware software-defined data center workloads run natively on the AWS Cloud. The new Google Cloud partnership will open new customer doors for VMware in 2020.
