VMware Cloud on AWS is gaining interest, deployments and more workloads, but there are challenges revolving around cost management, network complexity and prerequisites from AWS, according to a survey by Faction, a multi-cloud managed service provider.
Faction's findings, based on a survey of 1,156 IT and business professionals, are notable as VMworld kicks off next week and multi-cloud deployments are a main theme. Faction's primary conclusion is that migrations for VMware Cloud on AWS are going to increase over the next two years. The VMware-AWS partnership is a successful partnership that has built up in recent years to blend multicloud deployments. IBM and Red Hat and Microsoft Azure are likely to be hybrid cloud counterweights to VMware Cloud on AWS.
