VMware has announced innovations and technology partnerships that will help accelerate sovereign digital innovation and enhance security for its customers globally. There are more than 50 VMware Sovereign Cloud providers in 33 countries that are part of the ecosystem.
VMware’s Sovereign Cloud initiative is a global ecosystem that help customers comply with growing and changing data privacy laws.
“VMware Sovereign Cloud empowers nations with unparalleled data security and control, revolutionizing the way governments harness the potential of the cloud while safeguarding their digital sovereignty,” said Rajeev Bhardwaj, vice president, product management, cloud provider platform, VMware.
“Through our innovative sovereign cloud portfolio, global ecosystem of validated VMware Sovereign Cloud partners, and unmatched ecosystem of third-party solutions, we are enabling governments and highly regulated industries to embrace the limitless possibilities of the cloud while safeguarding their digital sovereignty,” Bhardwaj added.
Better securing sovereign cloud workloads
VMware Sovereign Clouds now support Bring Your Own Keys (BYOK) and Bring Your Own Key Management Systems (BYO-KMS). By letting customers create and hold their own “keys” to their data, customers can be more confident that no one else, not even the CSP, can view or access their information without permission.
BYOK provides customers with flexibility and portability for data encryption on their terms, enables adherence to specific key management policies associated with their business and regulation, and helps address legal requirements for data within any given jurisdiction.
New sovereign data services
VMware Cloud Director extension for VMware Data Solutions enables sovereign cloud customers to deliver a portfolio of on-demand caching, messaging, and database software at a massive scale to developers.
CSPs can offer tenants an integrated solution, which allows them to operate and manage data-as-a-service across private clouds and sovereign clouds. VMware Cloud Director also enables sovereign cloud providers to leverage ecosystem partners to deliver integrated data services. VMware is now adding more tools to the services.
