VMware Cloud on AWS is now available in Europe, and will offer new capabilities to accelerate and simplify enterprise cloud migration and hybrid cloud deployments.
VMware and AWS will also enable system integrator and system outsourcer (SISO) partners, managed service providers, and solutions providers to grow their cloud business with VMware Cloud on AWS, helping their customers realize the full benefits of hybrid cloud.
VMware Cloud on AWS also provides access to a broad range of innovative AWS services including compute, databases, analytics, Internet of Things (IoT), security, mobile, application services, and more. VMware Cloud on AWS customers have access to the same cloud management solutions and services proven in the data center, extending their tools, policies, and expertise for managing and securing mission-critical applications in the public cloud.
This week, VMware also announced expansion of its portfolio of cloud services, helping customers better manage the complexity and risk of multiple cloud environments while extending consistent IT operations from the data center to the cloud.
This includes new VMware Hybrid Cloud Extension Service for Private Cloud, a SaaS offering that provides application mobility and infrastructure hybridity across different vSphere versions, on-premises and in the cloud.
Previously announced Hybrid Cloud Extension services for both IBM Cloud and VMware Cloud on AWS are now available, and VMware has now added a new service for self-managed private enterprise datacenters. Hybrid Cloud Extension provides the operational support that enables enterprises to complete large-scale workload movement in environments spanning multiple private data center locations.

Customers have been asking us to bring VMware Cloud on AWS to Europe, and we are excited to be doing that today in the UK. Working together, VMware and AWS are delivering deeper AWS integration so that customers won’t have to manage their own storage and database services.
