VMware vCloud Air – Enhanced DR, Networking & On Demand Virtual Private Cloud

As part of VMware’s hybrid cloud strategy, VMware today announced plans to make their vCloud Air offerings more robust. VMware has added new enhanced disaster recovery and advanced networking services for VMware vCloud Air.

“Public cloud is a part of every VMware client’s view of the future because it helps them move faster and get far greater value for money from their IT Infrastructure,” said Bill Fathers, executive vice president and general manager, Cloud Services Business Unit, VMware. “VMware vCloud Air provides our clients with these benefits for both new and existing applications. The service enhancements announced today reflect strong client interest in a public cloud platform compatible with existing vSphere environments.”

Perhaps the most interesting announcement is VMware’s public cloud IaaS offered as an extension of your private cloud. The service offering named VMware vCloud Air OnDemand is now generally available and users get $300 of free service when they sign up, making tests, proof-of-concepts and application deployments risk free. There is no upfront resource commitment and no upfront cost. Charges will be incurred as the resources are consumed (metered by the minute) and billed on a monthly basis. Pricing starts at $0.17/hour for a VM with 8 GB of RAM and 2 vCPU.

“VMware vCloud Air OnDemand allows us a cost effective way of ramping up our development efforts outside of our vCloud Air production environment,” says Jeff Wilson, Director IT at Nevro Corp.
