VMware and Google set to offer technologies and expertise to help accelerate enterprise adoption of cloud computing.
The firms say they will address the need for cloud portability by using VMware vCloud technologies, SpringSource, Google Web Toolkit, and Google App Engine to simplify app development.
VMware has unveiled a series of technology collaborations with internet giant Google to deliver solutions that make enterprise software developers more efficient at building, deploying and managing applications within any cloud environment.
The partnership was announced at the Google I/O conference in San Francisco by Paul Maritz, President and CEO of VMware.
“Companies are actively looking to move toward cloud computing,” said Maritz. “They are certainly attracted by the economic advantages associated with cloud, but increasingly are focused on the business agility and innovation promised by cloud computing. VMware and Google are aligning to reassure our mutual customers and the Java community that choice and portability are of utmost importance to both companies. We will work to ensure that modern applications can run smoothly within the firewalls of a company’s data center or out in the public cloud environment.”
VMware and Google will collaborate to make cloud applications more productive, portable, and flexible. These projects will enable Java developers to build rich web applications, use Google and VMware performance tools on cloud apps, and deployments of Spring Java applications on Google App Engine. “Developers are looking for faster ways to build and run great web applications, and businesses want platforms that are open and flexible,” said Vic Gundotra, Google vice president of developer platforms. “By working with VMware to bring cloud portability to the enterprise, we are making it easy for developers to deploy rich Java applications in the environments of their choice.”
