Web search giant Google has made it official that it has purchased CloudSimple Company for an undisclosed amount. The objective of the deal is to strengthen VMware cloud workloads on its platform by integrating the technology of CloudSimple.
Santa Clara based company CloudSimple is a company that provides high performance and a dedicated environment for public clouds to run VMware workloads. The technology is reported to provide the same elasticity and services on the cloud as on the on-premise environments without convoluting the nature of app architectures and workloads.
“As VMware happens to be the first choice of enterprise customer’s applications, integrating its services via CloudSimple became our first choice. This partnership has been formed through years of partnership with CloudSimple and will allow customers to let their VMware workloads migrate to Google Cloud Computing (GCP) environments with ease”, Rich Sanzi, the Vice President of Google.
So, customers dealing with various VMware workloads such as business applications such as ERP and CRM, vSphere workloads, databases such as Oracle and SQL server, development and test environments, virtual desktops, and reporting and analytical systems will find it easy after the technology integration of CloudSimple onto GCP.
Readers of Cybersecurity Insiders have to notify a fact over here that Amazon Web Services (AWS) along with Microsoft Azure are already offering VMware workloads to be integrated into their cloud environment.
Note 1– CloudSimple officially discloses on its website that it now supports Azure and GCP platforms.
Note 2– The deal comes just after the development of AWS acquiring Google’s data migration services partner CloudEndure- which was supposed to be purchased by the internet juggernaut early this year.
