Google Teams Up With VMware For Cloud Portability [googlecode.blogspot.com]
Today we announced Google App Engine for Business, with a host of new features to help enterprises run their business applications on Googles infrastructure (read our blog post to learn more). Were also excited to announce our work with VMware to connect our developer tools, making it possible to create rich, multi-device web applications that can be hosted in a variety of Java-compatible hosting environments. Call it cloud portability for the enterprise -- productively build apps that you can deploy onto Google App Engine for Business, a VMware environment (your vSphere infrastructure, your choice of vCloud partners, or VMforce), or other infrastructure such as Amazon EC2.

As part of this announcement, were providing early access to these tools -- you can start using them right now by downloading the latest milestone version of VMwares SpringSource Tool Suite (STS). If you prefer to wait for the general release, you can sign up to be notified.

I would not have thought Google and VMware would partner like this but it makes sense in retrospect since a lot of companies already use VMWare and clearly Google wants a piece of that corporate america pie.
