Coming Soon: Bringing Portability of VMware Cloud Foundation Licenses to Google Cloud VMware Engine
Earlier this year, Broadcom and Google Cloud announced plans to support portability of VMware Cloud Foundation licenses to Google Cloud VMware Engine (GCVE). Those capabilities are targeted to be available by this July, enabling customers to purchase subscriptions of the new VMware Cloud Foundation software from Broadcom and flexibly use those subscriptions in Google Cloud VMware Engine, as well as their own on-prem data centers. GCVE can be consumed with the VMware Cloud Foundation licensing included in the solution. With VMware Cloud Foundation on Google Cloud VMware Engine, customers can simplify infrastructure, improve reliability, and build applications with BigQuery and Google Cloud's AI/ML capabilities.
