Currently in Technology Preview, VMware Cloud on AWS is a vSphere-based cloud service. The new service will bring our enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software to the AWS cloud.
Customers will be able to run any application across vSphere-based private, public and hybrid cloud environments. It will be delivered, sold and supported by VMware as an on-demand, elastically scalable service and customers will be able to leverage the global footprint and breadth of services from AWS.
This service will be powered by VMware Cloud Foundation. The service will integrate the capabilities of our flagship compute, storage, and network virtualization products (vSphere, vSAN, and NSX), along with vCenter management, and optimize it to run on next-generation elastic, bare metal, AWS infrastructure.
This will enable customers to rapidly deploy secure, enterprise-grade AWS cloud-based resources that are operationally consistent with vSphere-based clouds. The result is a comprehensive turnkey service that works seamlessly with both on-premises private clouds and advanced AWS services.
