Today, we have very exciting vCloud Air news to share. Not only are we extending our hybrid cloud service to Australia, but after completing a successful beta program, vCloud Air will be generally available in Japan in the coming weeks. The combination of vCloud Air with the VMware vCloud Air Network of service providers, which includes more than 20 data centers in Australia, makes VMware the largest hybrid cloud network in the Asia Pacific region.
The new service location in Australia, expected to be available in the first half of 2015, provides customers with a hybrid cloud option operated by VMware that addresses local compliance and data sovereignty concerns. VMware vCloud Air enables organizations to seamlessly expand their on-premises IT infrastructure to the public cloud. The resulting hybrid cloud is compatible with clients’ existing applications and allows them to build new cloud-native applications, delivering agility and efficiency to the business in a secure, reliable and compliant manner. IT departments can view, manage, and operate the cloud environment in a unified way and the service is compatible with Hybrid Cloud Services powered by the VMware vCloud Network of service providers.
In Japan After the successful beta program announced this past July with SoftBank Telecom Corp. and SoftBank Commerce & Service Corp. (SoftBank C&S), vCloud Air will be generally available in Japan in the coming weeks. The beta program was a success with more than 50 companies who participated; these companies will be making the transition to general availability allowing them to provide a true hybrid cloud for enterprises.
Today’s announcement is a true testament to VMware’s commitment to partnering with our clients as they begin or continue their journey to the cloud and to the global expansion of our products and services.
