Over the next few weeks I’m going to be concentrating on getting fully up to speed with VMware vCloud Director v5.5. Why? Well I teach the vCloud Director courses and also I do find the whole cloud thing quite interesting.
Today however I was browsing the VMware website and came across their latest news release regarding their vCHS (vCloud Hybrid Services).
So briefly, what is vCHS? The following statement was shamelessly taken from the VMware web site.
“VMware vCloud Hybrid Service is a true hybrid cloud that enables customers to enjoy the cost economics and agility public cloud, while maintaining the same control, security, and corporate compliance they already have in their existing data center.
A quick breakdown of what this offers customers:
- 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.
- Enterprise-class storage – VMware uses flash-accelerated disk storage, 10G networking and congestion control to meet the performance demands of enterprise applications.
- Full network virtualization – 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, at no extra cost!”
What’s the news?
Today VMware announced their new UK datacentre in Slough , this now gives European customers a EMEA base in which to host their data and gives all of the benefits listed above.
