VMware Expands Hybrid Cloud Data Center Presence in U.S.
vCloud Hybrid Service Available from Data Centers in Santa Clara, Calif. and Sterling, Va.
PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 14, 2013 — Today, VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, announced the general availability of VMware vCloud® Hybrid Service™ from new, state-of-the-art data centers located in Santa Clara, Calif. and Sterling, Va. These data centers complement VMware’s existing data center in Las Vegas, Nev., and provide U.S. customers with expanded access to a VMware public cloud to seamlessly extend their data center to the cloud without compromise.
“With the success of VMware vCloud® Hybrid Service™, we are rapidly expanding service capacity with robust physical infrastructure that can scale to accommodate our growing customer demand,” said Bill Fathers, senior vice president and general manager, Hybrid Cloud Services Business Unit, VMware. “Customers now have additional strategic East and West coast locations from which to take advantage of VMware’s hybrid cloud service that is completely interoperable with existing infrastructure and enables new and existing applications to run without compromise.”
Both locations are designed to serve the growing demand for vCloud Hybrid Service and comprised of high performance cloud architecture including:
- Fully Redundant VM Service – Unlike other clouds, VMware provides a service level agreement for VM availability, backed by fully redundant server infrastructure using VMware vSphere® vMotion®. This maximizes the performance and uptime of customer applications, automatically live migrating them to other compute nodes if there is server congestion or equipment failure.
- Enterprise-class Storage– VMware uses flash-accelerated disk storage, 10G networking and congestion control to meet the performance demands of today’s enterprise applications cost-effectively.
- Full Network Virtualization – At no extra cost, VMware customers can deploy a rich set of load balancers, firewalls and VPNs using virtual networks, switches and routers to replicate their physical networking configuration.
VMware vCloud Hybrid Service, built on VMware vSphere, enables customers to extend the same applications, networking, management, operations and tools across both on-premises and off-premises environments. Customers can manage and automate vCloud Hybrid Service from their vSphere console, vCloud Automation Center™, vCloud Application Director™ and their own tools using the vCloud API™.
