So during the keynote at VMworld in Barcelona on Tuesday morning, 18 October 2016, VMware showed a demo of how a VMware Cloud infrastructure is stood up in AWS and following that, showed how a virtual machine was migrated with vMotion into the AWS hosted VMware Cloud. This seemed impressive. However, something’s been bothering me and I’ve been to the VMware booth to get an answer but came up short.

The question I have is around processor architecture. If I’m running Intel in my local vSphere environment and AWS/VMware decided to run AMD in the VMware Cloud on AWS, how would you get that vMotion migration to work? It can’t right?

Is there an option to select the processor vendor for the newly deployed VMware Cloud on AWS?

And we have an answer!! Thank you Alex Jauch (@ajauch)!
