Ending industry speculation, today, VMware and former rival Amazon Web Services (AWS) officially announced a partnership to provide a new hybrid cloud service dubbed, "VMware Cloud on AWS." In a joint announcement, the companies said the strategic alliance to build and deliver an integrated hybrid offering will give customers a full software-defined data center (SDDC), enabling customers to run applications across VMware vSphere-based private, public, and hybrid cloud environments. The partnership was initiated because customers are asking the companies to help make it easier to run their existing data center investments alongside AWS.
