Broadcom Inc. and Google Cloud announced an expanded partnership that will involve optimizing Broadcom's VMware workloads for Google Cloud, jointly collaborating on go-to-market initiatives, adding more Broadcom products and services to Google Cloud Marketplace, and Broadcom infusing Google Cloud's generative AI capabilities. Broadcom and Google Cloud have a long history of working together to improve enterprise security and help businesses modernize their infrastructures. The expanded partnership announced will focus on: Leveraging Google Cloud's unique capabilities for VMware workloads: By moving the company's VMware workloads to Google Cloud-including customer-facing products and services as well as internal services-Broadcom can take advantage of Google's core platform capabilities, as well as use Vertex AI to enhance customer experiences.

Broadcom has already enriched the SymantecAI platform with Google Cloud's gen AI technology, and it will continue to grow its gen AI adoption as part of the partnership. Joint product and go-to-market collaboration: Broadcom and Google Cloud will further align their product and go-to- market organizations to enhance support for mutual customers, including deeper network solution integrations that simplify cloud deployments for mutual customers. Increased organizational alignment will enable the companies to identify business growth opportunities and better assist customers with infrastructure modernization.

Google Cloud Marketplace: Broadcom plans to add several more products and services to Google Cloud VMware Engine, such as Symantec Network Protection, which will enable customers to scale Broadcom solutions simply and quickly to their organizations. Customers can continue to deploy many previously-available Marketplace offerings, including Broadcom's Agile Operations solutions like AppNeta, Clarity, and Rally. VMware Tanzu Application Service, Gemfire, and RabbitMQ are currently available on Google Cloud Marketplace as well.

Coming soon: Bringing Portability of VMware Cloud Foundation Licenses to Google Cloud VMware Engine. Earlier this year, Broadcom and Google Cloud announced plans to support portability of VMware Cloud Foundation licenses to Google Cloud VMware Engine (GCVE). Those capabilities are targeted to be available by this July, enabling customers to purchase subscriptions of the new VMware Cloud Foundation software from Broadcom and flexibly use those subscriptions in Google Cloud VMware Engine, as well as their own on-prem data centers.GCVE can be consumed with the VMware Cloud Foundation licensing included in the solution.

With VMware Cloud Foundation on Google Cloud VMware Engine, customers can simplify infrastructure, improve reliability, and build applications with BigQuery and Google Cloud's AI/ML capabilities.
