Only for U.S. customers though. Do you want the easiest way to extend your datacenter into the cloud, with none other than VMware themselves? Well check this out!
I am pleased to announce that we are rapidly expanding service capacity with new, state-of-the-art, data centers in Santa Clara, Calif. and Sterling, Va., coming online in September. These sites will complement our existing data center in Las Vegas, Nev and provide our U.S. clients with ready access to a VMware public cloud without compromise.
We are not stopping there. For the past several months we have been taking the feedback from our early access customers and working on a series of enhancements. So, today we are also announcing new capabilities and solutions, including:
- Direct Connect: Will allow clients to connect their data center network directly to vCloud Hybrid Service over private dedicated networks, providing secure, consistent, high bandwidth connectivity.
- Disaster Recovery as a Service: Will automatically replicate applications and data to vCloud Hybrid Service, providing rapid automated recovery in the event of an outage. Clients can securely and automatically protect their applications with vCloud Hybrid Service for a fraction of the cost of building out additional physical data center capacity.
- Cloud Foundry Platform as a Service: Will provide full support for the open source Cloud Foundry distribution and Pivotal CF. Cloud Foundry allows customers to avoid the complexity of re-architecting applications to make them run well on public clouds, and avoids lock-in to proprietary cloud APIs.
- Horizon View Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS): Clients will be able to run Horizon View Desktops on vCloud Hybrid Service, and rapidly deploy new desktops without the expense and effort of procuring and managing physical hardware.
