VMware Cloud on AWS is the new cloud partnership that everyone is talking about. However, there’s a bigger question: What bets should enterprises place on this collaboration?
The deal certainly has gotten a lot of hype. That’s because it puts together the single biggest name in the public cloud space with the most recognizable name in virtualization. The idea is that you’ll have an on-ramp to the cloud that enterprises will have a hard time refusing.
VMware has been struggling with the new cloud movement, and this deal gives it a path to incorporate its traditional technology with a cool, trendy breakthrough: the Amazon Web Services platform.
