BMC Software on Wednesday will detail plans to collaborate with Amazon Web Services to ease hybrid cloud infrastructure deployments.

Despite a lot of chatter about cloud computing most enterprises will take a hybrid approach to their data center and link so called private clouds---also known as your data center---with outside resources. BMC, a leading data center management software company, is the latest enterprise player to partner with Amazon Web Services.

BMC said that its customers will be able to extend their data centers to Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) via its Business Service Management software.

In a nutshell, enterprise customers can request computing resources through a BMC portal and provision as needed. Asset tracking on EC2 will be integrated with BMC's management database. BMC offers a bevy of data center management, optimization and automation applications.
