VMware Talks Public & Hybrid Cloud Enhancements for vCloud Air

VMware went into to great detail discussing its enhancements for organizations who are taking advantage of VMware’s unified hybrid cloud. At the recent VMworld 2015 Europe conference, VMware execs took to the stage to announce significant enhancements for both of its public and hybrid cloud offerings. Three of the biggest additions into the VMware ecosystem are the announcements of:

  • Google Cloud DNS: Now Available on vCloud Air
  • vSphere Integrated Containers Support for the vCloud Air Platform
  • Project Michigan: A Hybrid Cloud Management System that spans On-Premises Systems for Elastic Services

“Enterprises are looking to move their applications to the cloud, and increasingly see a hybrid strategy to cloud adoption as the right answer,” says Bill Fathers, the EVP and GM of the Cloud Services Business Unit at VMware.
“VMware’s approach is about empowering organizations to securely build, run and deliver any application across any environment. Our public cloud, vCloud Air, and global service provider ecosystem, vCloud Air Network, form the core components of our Unified Hybrid Cloud and remove that compromise from consideration,” added Fathers.
One of the biggest draws for businesses that embrace the vCloud Air platform is the ability to completely standardize their environment across on-site and public cloud deployments. With VMware’s software defined data center architecture, you can be certain that your workloads will perform well both in the cloud and inside your onsite data center.
The addition of Google Cloud DNS will allow those who host workloads to have their services found faster since their DNS queries can be routed through Google’s Cloud DNS service. This improves on latency, which only helps the load time of your services. VMware vCloud Director 8 will also be released, mentioned VMware at their VMworld 2015 Europe event. The vCloud directory gives administrators the ability to create self-service tools for end users, making life easier on IT staff and end users alike.
