AWS RDS Comes to Datacenter With VMware

Move will help sysadmins manage a wider range of databases.

In an unexpected move, VMware and AWS (Amazon Web Services) announced the arrival of AWS Relational Database Service (RDS) to VMware. Sysadmins can now take advantage of AWS RDS not only on VMware Cloud but also in their own datacenter. The announcement was made at the VMworld 2018 conference this week in Las Vegas.

Unlike bringing everything to its cloud, AWS can now go inside the datacenter. AWS RDS will help sysadmins manage a wide range of enterprise databases, including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, MySQL, and MariaDB databases.

“Managing the administrative and operational muck of databases is hard work, error-prone, and resource intensive,” said Andy Jassy, Chief Executive Officer, Amazon Web Services. “We’re excited to bring this same operationally battle-tested service to VMware customers’ on-premises and hybrid environments, which will not only make database management much easier for enterprises but also make it simpler for these databases to transition to the cloud.”

The move by AWS is a clear indication of the growing demand for hybrid cloud where customers want to run workloads on both public and private cloud.
