Extend Your On-Premises Data Center into vCloud Air

VMware vCloud Air Hybrid Cloud Manager enables vSphere users to seamlessly extend networking to the cloud via an optimized, software-defined WAN. As a result, stretched networks perform similarly to local networks and workloads can be migrated to and from the cloud with zero downtime. VMware NSX security policies can also be migrated in order to retain the same security controls in the cloud. The Hybrid Cloud Manager feature is available for use with vCloud Air Dedicated Cloud service.

What vCloud Air Hybrid Cloud Manager Does

Seamlessly Extends Your Data Center

vCloud Air Hybrid Cloud Manager offers the ability to seamlessly extend on-premises networks to the cloud and to integrate on and off-premises resources. This eases cloud migrations, both in and out of the cloud, and makes hybrid clouds a reality.

Enables Bidirectional Workload Portability

Accelerated connectivity options facilitate the migration of workloads from your data center to vCloud Air. Hybrid Cloud Manager can move live, running workloads to vCloud Air with zero downtime or use bulk migration capabilities to move large numbers of workloads with a scheduled cutover.

Maintains Security and Control

Use the same network and security controls in vCloud Air as you do on-premises with vSphere and NSX. Stretch networks and migrate security policies to vCloud Air for use with Advanced Networking Services.

FEATURES

Software-Defined WAN

Intelligent routing, tiered WAN path selection, replication-aware traffic management, and WAN optimization technology make your connection to vCloud Air feel like it’s part of your local network.

Stretched Layer 2 Networks

Stretch the VLANs or VXLANs that your VMs are connected to in your data center out to vCloud Air so that your network is just as portable as your VMs.

Easy Workload Migration

Move live, running workloads to vCloud Air with zero downtime or use replication-based migration for bulk VM migrations during a scheduled cutover window.

Security Policy Migration

If you use NSX in your own data center you can move your VMs to vCloud Air and keep them on the same stretched Layer 2 network segment. You can also migrate your security policy to vCloud Air for seamless application migration.
