Extend Your Data Center to the Cloud

VMware vCloud® Air™ and VMware vCloud Air Network Service Provider partners are delivering on the promise of hybrid cloud computing, enabling you to seamlessly and securely extend your data center and applications to the cloud. With cloud services built on the trusted foundation of VMware technology, you can provision new or move existing workloads between onsite data centers or internal private clouds to the public cloud, and back again as needed, creating a true hybrid cloud. VMware provides unprecedented flexibility and choice of cloud services on a local basis with vCloud Air and through the vCloud Air Network--the world's largest network of validated cloud services based on VMware technology.

The Advantages of Hybrid Cloud

When you choose cloud services from VMware and our vCloud Air Network Service Providers partners, you don't have to worry about application compatibility or service provider lock-in often associated with other commodity cloud services. You reduce both risks and costs without requiring additional management tools and infrastructure, reinventing your processes or retraining your existing workforce. The benefits of a VMware-based hybrid cloud platform include:

  • The ability to write, deploy and manage applications in the cloud the same way you do today, relying on the underlying platform to provide the same level of security, reliability and performance you get from your current VMware infrastructure.
  • Administration of the entire hybrid infrastructure—data centers and public cloud together—with a "single pane of glass" management framework. Use the same tools, processes and skills you already have.
  • Quickly deploy workloads to the cloud with the flexibility to move them between your on-premises and off-premises environments as your requirements change.
  • Global availability and choice of validated cloud services through VMware or our vCloud Air Network service provider ecosystem.
  • Data sovereignty through local vCloud Air data centers and vCloud Air Network service providers in 102 countries.
