VMware and AWS Expand Capabilities and Availability of VMware Cloud on AWS

Building on the momentum from the exciting announcement at VMworld 2017 US, against the backdrop of AWS Re:invent 2017VMware and AWS announced that VMware CloudTM on AWS is now available in the AWS US East (N. Virginia) region.  In addition to bringing this service to a new region, we are also introducing a rich set of capabilities that enable customers to migrate, run, and protect production applications at scale.

We recently doubled the number of partners we are working with across all types – including technology partners, SISOs, MSPs, and solution providers. Today, technology partners can test their solutions on VMware Cloud on AWS through the VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program. As discussed at Partner Exchange @ VMworld 2017, we are working towards the delivery of new VMware Partner Network (VPN) Cloud offerings supporting VMware Cloud on AWS for our RTM partners (SISOs, solution providers, and MSPs). This offering will be available in Q1’FY19 and it will provide partners with incentives and benefits to reward those partners who develop services and drive consumption for VMware Cloud on AWS. To learn more, access the VMware Cloud on AWS page from Partner Central, read this post, or contact your VMware Partner Business Manager.
