Yesterday was announced at AWS re:Invent 2019 the Beta program of VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts, for a limited number of customers located in the United States.
What is VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts?
This new solution is a fully VMware-managed offer with the goals of providing a simple, more secure and scalable infrastructure for an on-premises data center. It will integrate all VMware SDDC solutions (vSphere, vSAN, NSX and vCenter) and will run on next-generation, dedicated, elastic Amazon EC2 bare-metal Outposts infrastructure, delivered on-premises with optimized access to local and regional AWS services.
Which are the Use Cases?
– Local Cloud;
– Data Center Modernization;
– Flexible Capacity.
Why should we consider that solution?
How to deal with that?
At the end, regarding all that new solutions focused on edge computing and on-premises solutions, but totally managed by VMware, the question that remains is how can integrator partners can deal with that? Which space remains for them?
Maybe we will understand that better on a near future…
