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.
