It’s official! VMware and Google Cloud team up to deliver a new Cloud platform to customers.
This new partnership will allow VMware to extend once more its muti-cloud portfolio and run VMware Cloud Fondation into Google Cloud.
So what’s up with that new offering?
Google will leverage on their platform the full VMware stack that include of course vSphere, but also vSAN and NSX-T, and Google Cloud will be in charge of the support. It is worth to mention that this solution is developped by CloudSimple, the same company that brought us VMware on Microsoft Azure.
The new solution will be available in late 2019, no region has been mentioned yet for the launch but my guess is it will be the US as usual.
This is becoming really interesting because if you remember well, VMware first teamed up in 2017 with AWS to reveal the WMware Cloud on AWS offering, then was announced a partnership with IBM and more recently at the last DellTechnology World was revealed the VMware Cloud on Microsoft Azure solution.
Now VMware’s customers have again the opportunity to expand their on premise infrastructure to a hybride cloud with the provider of their choice and take benefit of their public cloud services.
Now the question is, which one will be the best fit for you and your workloads ? 2020 is gonna be for VMware a year full of multi-cloud awesomeness!
