What is VMware Cloud on AWS?

VMware and Amazon Web Services (AWS) have launched their partnership into Europe, with the UK the first market to go live. VMware Cloud on AWS was first announced in 2016, and sees VMware's private cloud available on AWS' public cloud infrastructure.

VMware Cloud on AWS is an on-demand service that enables you to run your applications across vSphere-based cloud environments with access to a broad range of AWS services. Powered by VMware Cloud Foundation, this service integrates vSphere, vSAN and NSX along with VMware vCenter management, and is optimised to run on dedicated, elastic, bare-metal AWS infrastructure. With this service, your IT team can manage their cloud-based resources with familiar VMware tools.

The solution was made available in the US last year, with the UK the second market to see a launch as part of a global expansion.
"This is something that we've been working on with VMware for a very long time; it's been years in the making," said AWS channel VP Terry Wise.

The feedback from customers and partners has been tremendous, so we're super excited to get this out and help partners build a bigger business. "It's not just the VMware Cloud on AWS piece, which is critically important, but it's the ability to extend that with native AWS service capabilities which, frankly, just creates an almost limitless set of opportunities for partners to build a business."
