Key features

Fast networking and high availability

VMware Engine is built on Google Cloud’s highly performant, scalable infrastructure with fully redundant and dedicated 100 Gbps networking, providing 99.99% availability to meet the needs of your most demanding enterprise workloads.

Scale datastore capacity independently from compute capacity

Filestore is VMware certified as an NFS datastore with VMware Engine. You can size vCPUs and storage capacity independently to meet compute and storage requirements for your storage intensive VMs. Leverage vSAN for low latency VM requirements and scale Filestore from TBs to PBs for the capacity hungry VMs. 

Integrated Google Cloud experience

Benefit from full access to innovative Google Cloud services.  Native VPC networking gives you private layer-3 access between VMware environments and Google Cloud services, allowing you to use standard access mechanisms such as Cloud VPN or Interconnect. Billing, identity, and access control integrate to unify the experience with other Google Cloud services.

Robust VMware ecosystem solutions

Google Cloud Backup and Disaster Recovery is a managed backup and disaster recovery (DR) service for centralized, application-consistent data protection. Alternatively, you can leverage IT management tools and third-party services consistent with your on-premises environment. We’re partnering closely with leading storage, backup, and disaster recovery providers such as NetApp, Veeam, Zerto, Cohesity, and Dell Technologies to ease the migration journey; and enable business continuity. Read the VMware Engine ecosystem brief.

Familiar VMware tools and Google Cloud's operations suite

It's easy to move with the same VMware tools, processes, and policies you use to manage your on-premises VMware workloads. Use Google Cloud's operations suite to monitor, troubleshoot, and improve application performance on your Google Cloud environment.
