New VMware products come to AWS Marketplace

Two more of VMware’s cross-cloud services, Carbon Black Cloud and VMware Tanzu, are now available in AWS Marketplace.



VMware Carbon Black Cloud and VMware Tanzu are the latest services now available in AWS Marketplace, a digital catalogue with thousands of software listings from independent software vendors that makes make it easy for customers to find, test, buy, and deploy software that runs on AWS.

VMware cross-cloud services offer advantages to IT operators and developers working in AWS. These include accelerating application modernisation, migrating workloads faster to the cloud, adopting a cloud operating model for their entire organisation, and more securely and efficiently connecting a distributed workforce to cloud-based resources.

“Whether a customer has transitioned their business to run entirely in AWS or has a mixed environment of AWS and VMware vSphere, VMware Cross-Cloud services gives them the freedom and enterprise control they need to innovate and win in the market,” says Vittorio Viarengo, VP of cross-cloud solutions at VMware. “Our expanded presence in AWS Marketplace is another proof point of our focus on meeting customers where they are at by delivering value for the strategic cloud environment of their choice.”

“The addition of VMware Cross-Cloud services in AWS Marketplace brings VMware’s portfolio of solutions to both developers and infrastructure and operations professionals who are building apps and operating their businesses in AWS,” says Mona Chadha, director of AWS Marketplace Category Management. “Our mutual customers can streamline procurement and accelerate adoption of VMware Cross-Cloud services, leading to faster time-to-value and better business outcomes.”
