BMC Software has expanded its long-standing global alliance with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver a complete cloud services and cloud management portfolio that will give enterprise customers fast, flexible and powerful access to the power of the AWS cloud.

As part of the expanded alliance, BMC will work closely with AWS to offer packaged “JumpStart” solutions that consist of BMC licenses, AWS cloud services, Professional Services and Support. In addition, the companies will work together on deeper product integration and go-to-market activities.

The new combined portfolio will fully support a wide variety of enterprise workloads including web applications, line of business applications such as SAP, MS Sharepoint and Oracle, as well as high performance computing workloads including Amazon Elastic Map Reduce and Amazon DynamoDB.

Enterprise customers will be able to leverage the enterprise systems management and corporate governance they already use today coupled with access to the global scale and performance of AWS.

Brad Kern, BMC’s vice president, alliances said: “Building on significant ongoing product integration, BMC will work with Amazon Web Services to deliver bundled solutions targeted at addressing key DevOps, Web application and corporate IT use cases. As a result, enterprises will be able to run their complex workloads quickly and in a cost-effective manner. It is a powerful collaboration that will transform how customers deploy and manage their clouds.”

Terry Wise, Head of Worldwide Partner Ecosystem at Amazon Web Services, said: “We are pleased to build on the existing relationship with BMC to continue serving the needs of enterprise customers by delivering solutions that combine BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management with the reliable, flexible, low-cost AWS Cloud. Working closely together at the field level will help us to address the governance and control requirements of our enterprise customers and provide solutions that meet their needs.”
