Following the announcement last month of a major partnership with Google Cloud, VMware workloads can now be run on all three of the major cloud infrastructure providers, as well as Alibaba and IBM.The deal clearly signals VMware's desire to set itself up as a key player in any enterprise hybrid IT strategy, while Google Cloud continues to look to prove itself as a viable rival to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure."Today, we’re excited to announce that Google Cloud will begin supporting VMware workloads. It’s another significant step as we strive to better serve our enterprise customers," Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian wrote in a blog post on 30 July.
