Earlier this year, VMware and Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced a strategic alliance to build and deliver a seamlessly integrated hybrid offering that will give customers the full software-defined data center (SDDC) experience from the leader in the private cloud, running on the world’s most popular, trusted, and robust public cloud. VMware Cloud™ on AWS will enable customers to run applications across VMware vSphere®-based private, public, and hybrid cloud environments.
Delivered, sold, and supported by VMware as an on-demand, elastically scalable service, VMware Cloud on AWS allows VMware customers to use their existing VMware software and tools to leverage AWS’s global footprint and breadth of services, including storage, databases, analytics, and more.

Today, VMware and AWS are announcing that we are working on a joint initiative, the VMware Cloud on AWS Partner Program, that will be launched in 2017. The program will provide support for APN Partners that help customers deploy and operate VMware workloads on AWS.
