Your Public Cloud on a Trusted Secure Foundation

vCloud Powered Services are engineered on VMware vSphere and VMware vCloud Director. This unique combination provides complete multi-level security and a multitenant architecture that reduces complexity and ensures policy implementation that can be consistent with your internal datacenter.

At the hypervisor level, VMware's industry-leading ESXi hypervisor ensures full isolation of virtual machines and storage. For applications, VMware vCloud Networking and Security provides role-based access controls, application-aware firewalling, and policy and zone enforcement. Network-level protections include comprehensive perimeter security to preclude cross-tenant leakage, as well as web load balancing, site-to-site VPN, and other services. You also benefit from another key VMware advantage: vCloud Director's Layer 2 isolation of application and network tiers, which enables vCloud Powered services to run both legacy and next-generation applications.

Experience Compatibility in a Hybrid Cloud

With today's constrained budgets, it is no longer cost-effective to burn IT capital and overhead on standby capacity for periodic or unpredictable demand peaks. Instead, more and more companies are turning to vCloud Powered Services for ready resources right when they need them—to deliver value to users and lines of business much more rapidly and affordably. Full VMware compatibility assures that data and applications are portable between your datacenter and vCloud Powered infrastructure. You can even administer your hybrid cloud through a unified "single pane of glass" management framework. Using VMware vCloud Connector console, you can quickly move virtual machines, vApps, and templates back and forth between your internal datacenter and vCloud Powered Services.
