VMware has announced a series of technology collaborations with Google to deliver solutions that make enterprise software developers more efficient at building, deploying and managing applications within any cloud environment; public, private and hybrid.

"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 datacenter or out in the public cloud environment," said Paul Maritz, president and CEO of VMware.

VMware and Google are collaborating on multiple fronts to make cloud applications more productive, portable, and flexible. These projects will enable Java developers to build rich web applications, use Google and VMware performance tools on cloud apps, and deployments of Spring Java applications on Google App Engine.

"By working with VMware to bring cloud portability to the enterprise, we are making it easy for developers to deploy rich Java applications in the environments of their choice," said Vic Gundotra, Google vice president of developer platforms.
