AWS Outposts bring native AWS services, infrastructure, and operating models to virtually any data center, co-location space, or on-premises facility. You can use the same AWS APIs, tools, and infrastructure across on premises and the AWS cloud to deliver a truly consistent hybrid experience. AWS Outposts is designed for connected environments and can be used to support workloads that need to remain on-premises due to low latency or local data processing needs.
AWS Outposts come in two variants: 1) VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts allows you to use the same VMware control plane and APIs you use to run your infrastructure, 2) AWS native variant of AWS Outposts allows you to use the same exact APIs and control plane you use to run in the AWS cloud, but on premises.
AWS Outposts infrastructure is fully managed, maintained, and supported by AWS to deliver access to the latest AWS capabilities. Getting started is easy, you simply log into the AWS Management Console to order your Outpost, choosing from a wide catalog of Amazon EC2 instances and capacity and EBS storage options.
