On November 19, 2019, Google announced the acquisition of CloudSimple, a Santa Clara, California-based provider of secure, high performance, dedicated environments to run VMware workloads in the cloud. According to the statement released by Google, "This acquisition builds on our existing partnership with CloudSimple that we announced earlier this year, allowing us to accelerate a fully integrated VMware migration solution with improved support for our customers."

“We look forward to continuing our partnership with Google Cloud as they welcome CloudSimple, a VMware Cloud Verified partner,” said Ajay Patel, senior vice president, Cloud Provider Software Unit at VMware. “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.”

Earlier in July 2019, Google Cloud and VMware Inc. announced Google Cloud VMware Solution by CloudSimple, a new service that allows organizations to run their VMware workloads in Google Cloud Platform (GCP), providing customers with choice and flexibility to run VMware workloads on-premises, in a hybrid architecture, or in the cloud. The service includes VMware vSphere, vSAN and NSX deployed in GCP and operated by CloudSimple. Google Cloud will provide the first line of support, working with CloudSimple to help enable customers to receive a streamlined product support experience, and their business-critical applications are supported with SLAs that enterprise customers need.
