Users of VMware’s data center management software will now be able to utilize cloud computing without necessarily migrating from on-premises systems into the cloud. The new options, which became available generally on Monday, are possible through its partnership with Amazon Web Services to bring benefits that are increasingly important for enterprises to remain competitive.
The announcement for general availability was made prior to Monday’s keynote address by VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger at the opening of VMworld. The partnership however, has been in place since last October. The new availability enables tasks to be optioned into the AWS cloud for vSphere users and makes it easier to engage multiple environments to manage applications.
