Google buys CloudSimple to help run VMware workloads in the cloud

google acquires cloudsimple

Google has announced that it has bought Santa Clara based-CloudSimple. The acquisition is a natural extension of the partnership the two companies struck earlier this year. This move by Google will help more of its customers work on a fully integrated VMware migration.

VMware is used by many enterprises that run many types of workloads such as ERP, CRM, databases, development and test environments. Google says that many of its customers wanted to be able to run these environments anywhere they wanted. The integration of CloudSimple’s solutions will help make this happen.

The customers will now be able to migrate their VMware workloads from on-premises data centers into the Google Cloud VMware solutions by CloudSimple. They can do this without re-doing the existing VMware-based applications and workloads. This will help them reduce costs involved and operate more efficiently. This will also help the IT departments maintain consistency and make use of their existing VMware tools.

Ajay Patel, Senior Vice President, Cloud Provider Software Unit at VMware said: “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Google Cloud as they welcome CloudSimple, a VMware Cloud Verified partner.”
