Amazon Cloud Computing Technology Evangelist Simone Brunozzi Joins VMware

AmazonvmwareSimone Brunozzi has worked as Amazon cloud computing technology evangelist for more than 7 years; he will be chief technology officer at VMware from now on.

GREATRESPONDER.COM – This was announced by the former promoter of Amazon cloud computing technology through a blog post yesterday that he has found his dream job with the Virtualization giant VMware. This came as a big blow to the technology promotion of Amazon cloud services, which were being promoted with the help of expertise knowledge of Brunozzi.

It was further informed in the blog post that Mr. Simone would take over the role of Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at virtualization giant. He will take care of hybrid cloud computing portfolio to make it widely adopted in the domain of enterprise businesses.

The core emphasis of his work objectives would lay on the strengthening the vCloud Hybrid Service of VMware, especially in the domain of public cloud computing services, where the enterprise customers can deploy their applications in the public cloud and migrate their on-premises services to the private cloud.

VMware has been trying hard for long to strengthen its public cloud penetration and bring its leverage to thousands of companies who run their on-premises applications in the public domain. This move to hire Brunozzi would be very helpful in realizing the objectives to help enterprise to migrate their on-premises applications into the public cloud.

While talking about his new responsibilities, Simone Brunozzi wrote in his blog post, “The position I was offered … is both a challenge and an opportunity for me: new types of customers (more enterprise, less SMBs and startups), different ways to adopt and buy services, different barriers and incentives at play, and ultimately different players in the game.” According to the CTO of Amazon cloud computing services, Mr. Werner Vogels, “It seems that he (Simone Brunozzi) found a dream job for him.”

The cloud computing industry is noticing a huge reshuffling of the prominent managers and officers due to fierce competition in the industry and new entrants in this domain of business. In VMware perspective, it has camped many prominent figures in the industry to its fold, for example – Tony Scott & Chris Wolf. Tony was working as the chief technology officer at Microsoft Azure, while Mr. Chris has been the chief researcher at Gartner, the IT research company.
