Unified View into your Cloud Workloads
Through a single pane of glass UI, you can view, copy, and operate on workloads, including VMs, vApps, and templates across internal datacenter and private or public clouds. From the workloads view, you can view and manage VMs and vApps. From the catalogs view, you can view and manage your templates. Add an unlimited number of public or private clouds to vCloud Connector to see a list of existing VMs and templates across your hybrid cloud.
One Network: Datacenter Extension
By extending the logical boundaries of the datacenter, you can now accelerate the deployment time of your workloads, while maintaining security configurations across clouds. DCE allows for the transfer of workloads across clouds without needing to reconfigure the network settings in the destination. This increases operational agility of the cloud, realizing ‘one network’ to deliver your applications. Datacenter Extension is an advanced feature of vCloud Connector, available with the VMware vCloud Suites.
One Catalog: Content Syn
You can now manage a single content catalog across your entire cloud environment using Content Sync. With Content Sync, a ‘source’ catalog is defined and all other catalogs will get any new templates added to the source. This facilitates greater collaboration by bringing remote locations 'on the same page' as the source. This also eases the management of multiple catalogs, increasing operational efficiency and deployment turn-around time. Content Sync is an advanced feature of vCloud Connector, available with the VMware vCloud Suites.
One Cloud: Advance your journey
Whether you need an internal private cloud, a public cloud, or a hybrid cloud that combines the best of both, vCloud Connector can help advance your journey. Built upon VMware vSphere and vCloud APIs, vCloud Connector allows customers to connect VMware vSphere or VMware vCloud Director-based private and public clouds and manage them under a single interface, extending the logical boundaries of your datacenter.
