VMware decided to move away from offering their own public cloud when vCloud Air was discontinued earlier this year, moving their offer to “VMware Cloud on AWS”. Even though AWS still has a larger market than Azure, VMware customers still know that if they want to move to a public cloud provider, they will have to look for a different vendor than VMware.
