Tech giant Google this week announced that it has acquired CloudSimple, a noted provider of secure, high performance, dedicated environments to run VMware workloads in the cloud. This acquisition builds on its existing partnership with CloudSimple, allowing them to accelerate a fully-integrated VMware migration solution.
Many enterprises are using VMware in their on-premises environments to run a variety of workloads:
- business applications such as ERP and CRM
- databases such as Oracle and SQL Server
- development and test environments
- virtual desktops
- reporting and analytics systems
As part of their IT modernization initiatives, we hear frequently from enterprise customers that they need a simple way to migrate those workloads to the cloud. To put it simply: they want to be able to run what they want, where they want, and how they want — so they can leverage existing investments with as little toil as possible.
Through their existing partnership with CloudSimple, their customers can migrate their VMware workloads from on-premises data centers directly into Google Cloud VMware Solution by CloudSimple, while also creating new VMware workloads as needed.

Their apps can run exactly the same as they have been on-premises, but with all the benefits of the cloud, like performance, elasticity, and integration with key cloud services and technologies. And best of all, customers can do all this without having to re-architect existing VMware-based applications and workloads, which helps them operate more efficiently and reduce costs, while also allowing IT staff to maintain consistency and use their existing VMware tools, workflows and support.
Ajay Patel, senior vice president, Cloud Provider Software Unit at VMware, said in a statement, “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Google Cloud as they welcome CloudSimple, a VMware Cloud Verified partner. Our partnership with Google Cloud enables our mutual customers to run VMware workloads on VMware Cloud Foundation in Google Cloud Platform. With VMware on Google Cloud Platform, customers will be able to leverage all of the familiarity of VMware tools and training, and protect their investments, as they execute on their cloud strategies and rapidly bring new services to market and operate them seamlessly and more securely across a hybrid cloud environment.”
