VMware continues to roll out VMware Cloud on AWS into additional regions, enabling partners around the world to help their customers deploy hybrid cloud solutions. Our most recent expansion is to the Asia Pacific (Tokyo) region, our second location in Asia Pacific after Sydney that was announced earlier this year. This expansion closely follows our expansion in Europe and US, where VMware Cloud on AWS is now available in AWS Europe (Ireland), US West (N. California) and US East (Ohio).

VMware is accelerating the expansion of VMware Cloud on AWS into more regions since the announcement of the service last year, enabling our partners to meet the needs of their customers across the globe. Next year, VMware Cloud on AWS is expected to be available in more locations including Singapore, Mumbai, Canada Central, Paris, Sao Paulo, Hong Kong, Osaka, Seoul, Bahrain, GovCloud US East, and Sweden. With this aggressive roll-out, VMware Cloud on AWS will become available to a broad set of partners and customers. Partners can view the VMware Cloud on AWS roadmap here on cloud.vmware.com/vmc-aws.

This regional expansion comes as VMware is also enhancing our partner programs. As announced at VMworld US, VMware is helping our partners grow their hybrid cloud business with the new Cloud Sales Institute, new consumption incentives, a new Partner Acceleration program, and new marketing assets. Information about these new and existing partner programs for VMware Cloud on AWS can be found on the VMware Cloud on AWS page in Partner Central.

To help our partners grow their VMware Cloud on AWS, VMware has three active promotions; 3 Hosts for the Price of 2, Affordable Access to VMware Cloud on AWS for Partners, and a DRaaS Promotion. The 3 Hosts for the Price of 2 promotion enables partners to offer VMware Cloud on AWS configurations that are 50% less than the standard 4 host cluster. The Affordable Access to VMware Cloud on AWS gives partners a 30% discount off a single node or four node SDDC environment for testing or development. Lastly, the DRaaS promotion enables partners to offer VMware Site Recovery service for VMware Cloud on AWS for free for up to 90 days. Learn more about these promotions at the Partner Central Promotions Page.
