Today, the second day of the VmWorld 2009 conference, VmWare announced vCloud Express, a new class of service that will deliver on-demand, much like Amazon Web Services’ Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) or public cloud. It was only a matter of time before VmWare played it’s cards in this area. What is unique about this announcement is that VmWare itself will not be creating public clouds but will simply enable various service provides to build public clouds! One such provider is Terremark and you can see comparison with Amazon at their web site here, http://vcloudexpress.terremark.com/
There is more information about vCloud Express at this blog.
