Amazon Web Services (AWS) took square aim at the data center this week by tying in VMware technology and rolling out two new services and on-premise hardware to help customers build and support hybrid clouds.The new service, called Outposts, lets users choose between on-premises servers and storage, which they can order in quarter, half, and full rack units. Outposts can be upgraded with the latest hardware and next-generation instances to run all native AWS and VMware applications, AWS stated. A second version, VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts, lets customers use the a VMware control plane and APIs to run the hybrid environment. The AWS native variant of AWS Outposts allows you to use the same exact APIs and control plane you use in the AWS cloud, but on premises. You will be able to run Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud and Amazon Elastic Block Store on Outposts,” AWS wrote on its website.“The VMware variant allows you to run VMware Cloud on AWS locally on Outposts to use the same VMware control plane and APIs you use to run your on-premises infrastructure. This variant delivers the entire VMware Software-Defined Datacenter (SDDC) — compute, storage, and networking infrastructure — to run on-premises using AWS Outposts and allows you to take advantage of the ease of management and integration with AWS services,” the company said.
