"VMware Cloud on AWS represents the union of pioneering technologies across on-premises and public cloud environments. It retains the familiarity, control and tooling of the VMware environment, while allowing workloads to run in the AWS cloud and use the latest AWS services." said Deepak Mohan, research director, Public Cloud Infrastructure as a Service. "In tandem, they bring both on-premises and public cloud platforms together for customers and IT organizations, enabling a unified hybrid infrastructure experience across on-premises IT infrastructure and the AWS cloud."
