VMware offers fully managed storageas-a-service

06 May 2022

VMware is rolling out the technology it uses for its cloud disaster recovery service and selling it as a cloud storage service. Cloud Flex Storage is a cloud-native offering that is fully managed by VMware and delivered with pay-as-you-go pricing on the VMware Cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure. Customers can provision the storage quickly in the VMware Cloud Services Console without adding hosts and adjust their storage capacity as needed. “This is about scalability and elasticity with scaling disaggregated so you don’t have to add more hosts to get more storage capacity,” said Mark Chuang, head of product marketing for cloud storage and data.
