AWS Outposts and VMware: moving from off to on-premises
At RE:Invent 2018 this last month, AWS announced a flurry of services, one of the most interesting being AWS Outposts. Outposts is a fully managed, on-premises ITaaS intended to mirror the AWS experience and address applications that are latency sensitive or need to be on- premises due to compliance regulations. There are two flavors. One, AWS Outpost Native, is an all-AWS solution running a native EC2 instance. The other is VMware Cloud on AWS Outpost running essentially VMware’s SDDC stack, again as a managed on-premises service. As these integrated hardware/software systems will not ship until 2H 2019, no pricing or payment schema were cited, except that they will mirror the AWS pay-as-you-go model. No capital purchases, no asset transfers are required.
