Hybrid Cloud Extension is the VMware technology used to connect to, and facilitate the bulk migration and vMotion of virtual machines between a customers on-premises data center and their VMware data center running in AWS. (VMware Cloud on AWS)
Until today, HCX was considered an add-on component to a VMware Cloud on AWS subscription. HCX had it’s own pricing and consumption model which was largely determined by the particular customer use case.
VMware announced this morning that HCX will now be included with the core VMware Cloud on AWS offering at no additional cost. This move serves to simplify the adoption of the service and to aid customers in the migration of desired workloads to the public cloud.
