VMware today said Google Cloud Platform will be integrated into vCloud Air, a hybrid cloud platform, to offer better access to public cloud services – targeting enterprises.
Google Cloud Platform services including Google Cloud Storage, Google BigQuery, Google Cloud Datastore and Google Cloud DNS will be available on vCloud Air.
“Our collaboration will provide customers with a hybrid solution that combines the power and efficiencies of VMware virtualization and the hyperscale of Google Cloud Platform,” said Murali Sitaram, managing director, Global Partner Strategy & Alliances, Google.
Enterprise customers will be able to combine their VMware cloud environments with the security, scalability, and price performance of Google’s public cloud.
Customers will gain from both vCloud Air and Google Cloud Platform in a single hybrid cloud service, supported by VMware, and compatible with their existing vSphere-based data center infrastructure, said VMware.
Existing VMware vCloud Air customers will have access to the new services under their current service contract and existing network interconnect. They need to pay for the Google Cloud Platform services they consume.
