VMware Cloud and AWS enter Europe

Written by Mark Evans

VMware and Amazon Web Services (AWS) have been made available in Europe, offering cloud migration and hybrid cloud deployments and enabling system integrator and system outsourcer (SISO) partners, managed service providers, and solutions providers greater access to the resources to run, manage, and secure applications in a hybrid cloud.

The offering, based out of London, gives greater freedom to move applications between on-premises VMware vSphere-based data centres and AWS, accelerated cloud migrations and access to a broad range of services including compute, databases, analytics, Internet of Things (IoT), security, mobile and application services.

“Since launching VMware Cloud on AWS just six months ago, we’ve seen tremendous interest from our global customer base and multi-national enterprises. Today marks an essential starting point for our global expansion to deliver unparalleled hybrid cloud services in major geographies around the world,” said Mark Lohmeyer, vice president and general manager, Cloud Platform Business Unit, VMware.
