We are announcing the general availability of VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts, a jointly-engineered solution that delivers VMware Cloud on AWS as a fully managed experience to virtually any datacenter, co-location space, or on-premises facility with AWS Outposts. It runs VMware’s enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software on dedicated AWS Nitro System-based EC2 bare metal Outposts instances. VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts is built for VMware workloads that require low-latency access to on-premises systems, local data processing, or data residency.
VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts simplifies IT operations. AWS delivers and installs the Outpost at your on-premises location, monitors, patches, and updates it, and handles all maintenance and replacement of the hardware. VMware provides continuous lifecycle management of VMware SDDC and serves as your first line of support.
VMware Cloud on AWS and VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts share the same infrastructure, architecture, and operations, offering a truly consistent hybrid experience. With access to over 200 AWS services, VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts empowers you to innovate faster wherever your workloads need to be deployed.
