VMware has announced that it will be introducing its VMware vCloud Air, the hybrid cloud solution platform in Germany. Along with this the company also revealed its plans for an Early Access Program for VMware vCloud Air Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand with an expanded footprint in North America and Europe. The VMware vCloud Air Virtual Private Cloud will enable the customers to access the vCloud Air with the swipe of a credit card.
Speaking about the new announcements, Bill Fathers, executive vice president and general manager, Cloud Services Business Unit, VMware, said “Since introducing VMware vCloud Air a year ago, VMware has made significant strides to provide customers with a hybrid cloud platform they know and trust. As we continue to expand VMware vCloud Air into new markets, with more services than ever before, we are only just scratching the surface of what the service will become the industry’s leading hybrid cloud platform for delivering innovation as a service from the data center to the desktop and mobile applications.”
The company’s plan of introducing the vCloud Air in Germany will allow VMware’s European customers to address local data privacy, security and sovereignty issues, while enabling them to take advantage of a public cloud from a global leader. On the other hand, the VMware Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand will provide billing in arrears only for the services consumed. Moreover, VMware is also giving its European customers more options on how to connect and leverage the cloud with VMware vCloud Air Direct Connect. This helps the customers to seamlessly expand their infrastructure directly to vCloud Air for increased resources and scale as needed over private dedicated networks, enabling secure, consistent, high bandwidth connectivity.
