VMware said this week that it is partnering with Google to help enterprise software developers build, deploy and manage applications within public, private and hybrid clouds. 

VMware said the two companies will offer products that let Java developers build rich web applications, use Google and VMware performance tools on cloud apps, and deploy Spring applications on Google App Engine. Spring is a VMware applications framework for developing Java apps. Google App Engine is a software development and hosting platform.

“Companies are actively looking to move toward cloud computing.  They are certainly attracted by the economic advantages associated with cloud, but increasingly are focused on the business agility and innovation promised by cloud computing,” said Paul Maritz, president and CEO of virtualization software company VMware, said in a statement. “VMware and Google are aligning to reassure our mutual customers and the Java community that choice and portability are of utmost importance to both companies.   We will work to ensure that modern applications can run smoothly within the firewalls of a company’s data center or out in the public cloud environment.” 

Google and VMware are also said to be working on products that will provide end-to-end performance visibility of the cloud applications built using the companies’ software tools.
