Comparison: Pubic Cloud-Hosted – VMware Cloud Foundation Services

Last Updated: Jul 1, 2020 @ 6:17 pm

The public cloud-hosted VMware Cloud Foundation service comparison table is not designed to be a competitive comparison table. If you are looking for an opinion on which cloud service provider you should use to host your VMware vSphere environment, then this is not the website for you.

I’ve put this table together in order to learn more about the available service offerings. Data on each service has been collected in order to have data points from all service providers available in a single place.

This page will evolve over time as new services/features become available, so follow me twitter @Simonlong_ for updates . If a cell is empty it’s because I haven’t been able to find the information yet. If you notice any incorrect information, please contact me via twitter @Simonlong_ and I will do my best to update ASAP.

NOTE: Table is horizonatally scrollable
