VMware and Amazon bring a new partnership where VMware customers will be able to extend their private cloud on Amazon Datacenters around the World promoting a seamless integration and lifecycle operation bringing a Hybrid cloud environment.

This service will include all the enterprise tools you’re familiar with including vSphere, ESXi, VSAN and NSX. The hardware used by AWS is on heaven secrets but will be compliance with VMware requirements, to allow such integration. VMware with AWS will bring Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) stack to the AWS cloud, delivered as an on-demand, subscription-based, elastically scalable offering. Some interesting use cases are App development, Testing, Disaster Recovery, Geo Expansion, Burst capacity and Data Center Migration


VMware cloud will run on native ESX on next-generation, it manages and operates the infrastructure of the VMware Cloud on AWS providing the full lifecycle of the product being a Managed Service Provider for an instance. Virtualization administrators will have permissions on vCenter to perform administrative tasks.

At the moment AWS Cloud Global infrastructure operates 35 Availability Zones within 13 geographic Regions around the world, with 12 more Availability Zones and 5 more Regions coming online throughout the next year.


At the moment I’m writing this, it’s occurring the VMworld Europe in Barcelona until 20 of October 2016, give a look to the breakout sessions INF7849: VMware Cloud on AWS – a closer look and INF7711R: VMware Cloud on AWS. In this session VMware guys will dive a little deeper into the details of this service.


This service is expected to be available in the mid-2017 time-frame, VMware didn’t confirm if this will available in all AWS regions. Customers will be able to choose from on-demand (hourly) or subscription-based (1 year, 3 yea) options to consume this service. Customers will also be able to leverage their existing investments in VMware licenses.

Customers will have to call VMware team for infrastructure lifecycle management, support, billing and account management.
