VMware expands AWS Cloud Services VMware, a virtualization specialist and software vendor, has increased several offerings on Amazon Web Services (AWS). This is part of a broad push to simplify multicloud adoption and expand its Cloud Services portfolio. VMware claims it has improved the enterprise functionality of the offering by deploying the VMware Cloud on AWS service at AWS London. Stretched Clusters provide new high-availability capabilities. In a blog post last Wednesday, Raghu Raghuram, a VMware executive, stated that applications in VMware Cloud on AWS will be able to take advantage of the high availability capability built directly into infrastructure. “We’re expanding a proven model to protect applications from the datacenter and the cloud, complementing AWS’s world-class cloud. Customers can be confident that their applications will receive the same level protection and availability as today. This is done as a native capability that we have built into the infrastructure, removing developers from the responsibility to custom build it into each application. VMware was one of many announcements.

VMware Cloud on AWS: Adding Connectivity, Multitenancy features Executives from Amazon Web Services (AWS), and VMware gave an update this week on their joint offering, VMware Cloud. They also discussed upcoming capabilities. Mark Lohmeyer (senior vice president of Cloud Platform at VMware) and Dave Brown (vice president of AWS Elastic Compute Cloud EC2) highlighted the rapid growth in VMware Cloud on AWS since its introduction in late 2016.

According to Datadog, serverless computing is becoming more common among cloud users, including AWS, Azure and Google. This is according to new data from security and monitoring specialist Datadog. Datadog’s third “The State of Serverless” report revealed that more than half of its customers use serverless computing across AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. This is typically a distributed chunk of code or functions that are triggered by different types of user or system events. Datadog used usage telemetry data from thousands of customers to compile the report. The report stated that serverless has revolutionized application development by eliminating the need for provisioning and managing any underlying infrastructure. “The serverless ecosystem is maturing and has a lot in common with container-based technologies. Over half of all organizations that use each cloud have adopted serverless because of the wide variety of options available. The following graphic shows that the Amazon cloud is leading the pack in terms of the percentage of Datadog users who use AWS Lambda, the primary service for serverless, or any of its other options: AWS App Runner (ECS Fargate), and EKS Fargate (ECS Fargate).

Datadog updates the numbers frequently — this is the third edition. Datadog has observed a growing correlation between serverless computing, container use, and other forms of computing over the years. This report contains data points about each cloud that are container-related.
