Today at re:Invent in Las Vegas, VMware previewed two new offerings—VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts and VMware Cloud Foundation for EC2—that will enable customers to build and deploy private data centers in an ‘as-a- service’ model with rich, enterprise-class capabilities. Both solutions will leverage AWS Outposts and include new, fully managed and configurable compute and storage racks built with AWS-designed hardware that allow customers to run compute and storage on-premises, while seamlessly connecting to the rest of AWS’s broad array of services in the cloud. Together these offerings will enable customers with a consistent infrastructure and operational experience across all VMware and AWS cloud environments. Learn more.
