AWS moving to bare metal servers to deliver VMware environment
Few vendors can match AWS' ability to create a multi-tenant cloud environment. On the other hand, AWS can't necessarily match VMware's ability to create the software-defined data center, a virtualization, automation and policy-driven operation for the enterprise. VMware threw in the towel on matching AWS as a public cloud service provider. AWS acknowledged it was a long ways from providing a software-defined data center in the cloud that would appeal to VMware customers. Better let VMware do it. A big change for AWS: VSphere in the cloud won't be multi-tenant; it will be on bare metal servers.
