It gives businesses a “consistent operating model and application mobility across private and public cloud resources”. VMware Cloud on AWS connectivity is available through the ‘CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange’ which is located in Boston, Massachusetts, Denver, Colorado, New York and Northern Virginia in the United States.
“We are excited to be one of the first data center providers to offer our customers access to VMware Cloud on AWS, enabling secure and flexible cloud connectivity that can scale with their business demands”, explained CoreSite’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Steve Smith. “As a trusted provider of AWS Direct Connect since 2011, and an Amazon Partner Network (APN) Technology partner, we are pleased to expand the solutions we provide our customers by partnering with VMware.”
