At its big conference on Tuesday, VMware launched the next generation of its Azure VMware Solution tool, which allows customers to easily extend or migrate their VMware applications to Microsoft Azure.




VMware still says that Amazon Web Services, which it has worked with since 2016, is its preferred partner and that VMware Cloud hosting on AWS has risen 130% year-over-year.




VMware COO Sanjay Poonen says the company has been working to become a "multi-cloud" company to make it easy for customers to work with AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google, and other clouds.

VMware, largely known for selling virtual machines and data centers, didn't have a core cloud strategy until 2016, when it announced a partnership with Amazon's cloud. Since then, VMware has made other strides forward, partnering with third parties to make sure its customers can use its products regardless of what cloud hosting they use. It's now making it easier for its customers to work with Microsoft Azure, the firm announced at its VMworld conference on Tuesday. The next generation of its Azure VMware Solution will allow customers to easily extend or migrate their VMware applications to Microsoft's Azure cloud. Customers will also be able to easily use VMware or Azure tools on one platform. Deeper partnership with Microsoft Azure aside, VMware says that AWS is still its preferred cloud partner, meaning that it will promote Amazon's cloud to its customers to consider first. VMware says that hosting on VMware Cloud on AWS rose 130% between August 2019 and 2020.
