AWS has embraced hybrid cloud solutions. The company has announced that together with VMware it will launch a number of options to bring AWS to the data center, reports TechCrunch. It concerns two new products that are part of Outposts.
This makes it possible to place the cloud service in a data centre with special hardware. That hardware has the same design as Amazon uses in its own data centres.
There are two variations of Outposts: VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts and Outposts. The first variant uses the VMware control panel. The second option allows users to run compute and storage on-premise using the same APIs used in Amazon’s cloud.
The two companies have been working together for some time to bring VMware to Amazon’s cloud. Part of this announcement, however, turns that around. The cloud now comes on-premise to work with VMware. In both cases, however, AWS sells the hardware, installs it as needed and even maintains it for the user.
With the announcement, Amazon meets the fact that users want to work both in the cloud and on-premise in the future. In addition, it expands the company’s cloud-native-like vision. The company announced last Monday Transit Gateways, which are designed to provide a single way to manage network resources, whether they’re in the cloud or on-premise.
Now the company is bringing its cloud on-premise, which is what Microsoft, Canonical, Oracle and other competitors have been doing for some time. Today’s announcement is only a public preview. The actual product should be launched in the second half of next year.This news article was automatically translated from Dutch to give Techzine.eu a head start.
