Access Enterprise-Class Public Cloud Resources Easily and Securely

Whether you need extra capacity for peak demand or want to extend all the benefits of virtualized infrastructure beyond your data center, VMware vCloud® Air™ and vCloud Service Providers offer you the true IT agility, efficiency and cost savings of the public cloud.

vCloud services deliver enterprise-class security and infrastructure compatibility together with the freedom to readily move workloads among private, public and hybrid clouds. That’s because only vCloud services are built on the world’s most proven and widely deployed infrastructure technologies: VMware vSphere®, VMware® vCenter™, VMware vCloud® Director™, and VMware vCloud® Networking and Security ™.

Increase Business Agility without Sacrificing Security and Control

Access IT Resources When You Need Them

Prepare for unpredictable demand without keeping a substantial reserve of often idle hardware and software on hand. A public cloud can supply you with IT resources without the huge expense of having to own and operate them yourself. Instead, you contract by subscription or on a pay-per-use basis.

VMware Public Cloud Services

VMware delivers public cloud services directly and also has a large global ecosystem of cloud computing partners who build public clouds on the industry-leading VMware vSphere virtualization platform that has been deployed by more than 480,000 companies worldwide. We test and certify these partners to assure the highest standards for security and performance. Then, and only then, our partners offer you public cloud services co-branded with the VMware name.

VMware Public Cloud

VMware Public Cloud
  • VMware vCloud Data Center Services : Globally consistent clouds built on the same trusted VMware cloud infrastructure already deployed in your data center–for assured compatibility, guaranteed performance, uptime and unmatched, auditable security and compliance.
  • VMware vCloud Powered Services : A broad array of flexible and secure cloud services based on VMware cloud infrastructure, tailored to meet any business need and fully interoperable with your VMware-based internal data center.
  • VMware vCloud Connector : The ultimate in administrative ease for your hybrid cloud: view, manage and reliably transfer workloads from one vCloud service provider to another or from your private vCloud environment to public clouds and back again.

Why Are VMware-Enabled Services Different?

Often public clouds don’t replace existing IT resources; they function together and need to work seamlessly as a whole. Because public cloud services from VMware and VMware partners are built on the same technology platform as your own virtualized applications, they fit perfectly into your existing IT environment.

You don’t have to worry about compatibility or service provider lock-in.  Provide reliable cloud workload transfers between private, public and hybrid clouds, giving companies the freedom to move from one vCloud service provider to another, or from a private vCloud environment to public clouds and back.

Count on the Security of VMware-Enabled Public Cloud Services

vCloud services incorporate VMware vSphere’s multilevel, auditable security, plus a comprehensive security framework designed for compliance with your internal IT environment. We set stringent standards for security, scale and production readiness and certify that vCloud service provider partners comply. So you can choose vCloud services with confidence. vCloud Air is available only in the US today, while vCloud services from vCloud Service Providers are available worldwide. Wherever your company is located, VMware vCloud Services are available to you with globally consistent public cloud resources.
