Since October of 2016, when VMware announced its partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS), organizations have been looking to the cloud to provide consistent functionality while enabling cloud workload mobility with products like vMotion so that application resources can reside where they make the most sense for the business. Organizations want to utilize the advantages of the cloud while also utilizing the skill sets of their current VMware administrators.
