Network World dubbed this approach “crustacean security“ way back in 2007.

It is only day two of VMworld, and there is so much excitement around cloud services from VMware. On August 21, we announced the rebranding of vCloud Hybrid Service to vCloud Air, our new name for the industry’s only enterprise-ready Hybrid Cloud. We also introduced the vCloud Air Network, providing more choice in cloud service options to our customers than any cloud provider in the industry.
The cloud is VMware’s second DNA, and the rebrand to vCloud Air represents how VMware will deliver innovation as a service, from the data center to the desktop and mobile applications, all on top of the vCloud Air platform.
