Google Cloud VMware Engine

Google Cloud VMware Engine delivers a fully managed VMware Cloud that runs natively within Google Cloud. 

It provides the familiar operational and administrative tools to seamlessly migrate and manage mission-critical workloads.



Google Cloud VMware Engine Uses Cases

Data Center Expansion and Hybrid Cloud

Extend existing infrastructure to Google Cloud or retire existing on-premises environments. Use on-demand dynamic resource scaling to meet strict requirements.

Backup and Disaster Recovery

Configure Google Cloud as a failover site for recovery to the cloud. Simplify strategies while reducing the costs and required tasks of administering a disaster recovery plan.

Application Modernization

Connect legacy applications with cloud-native solutions across hybrid cloud environments. Present existing app data to Google Cloud services for advanced business insights.

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

Extend existing VMware Horizon environments to Google Cloud, or deploy cloud-based virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) within Google Cloud VMware Engine.

Benefits of Google Cloud VMware Engine

VMware Engine simplifies cloud migration strategy and provides a fully integrated experience for VMware workloads running in Google Cloud.
