On the heels of the many announcements from VMworld, we’re happy to share additional new capabilities to improve your public and hybrid cloud experience with vCloud Air. With these additional capabilities, you will be able to migrate more of your existing applications to the cloud as well as build new applications native to the cloud. All of these are available on vCloud Air today.
Busy week? Now you can catch up on all the topics we discussed on the VMware vCloud blog in one place! From vTech Talks to new compliance spotlights, here’s the past week in review:
Let’s face it, purchasing cloud services can get complicated. Which workloads are you moving? Do you need a single-tenant or multi-tenant environment? What vCloud Air location works best? Oh and by the way, the check is in your hand and the end of the quarter is 10 days away…

So you’ve decided to make the move to the cloud. Congratulations!
What’s the next step? Finding a provider that not only provides the services you need, but whose cloud services are able to meet stringent IT and business standards.
Over the next few months, we’ll be having a regular series spotlighting different compliance standards, across multiple vertical markets. The first part in this series focuses on PCI-DSS, or the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.
In the first blog of this series on optimizing application performance in the cloud, we outlined a number of core vCloud Air features that enable you to meet high performance and availability requirements of your workloads. In this blog, we’ll look at the role of storage and what you should consider when planning for peaks or spikes in traffic.
Tiered storage is the assignment of different categories of data to different types of storage media in order to reduce total storage cost. There are two storage options available with a vCloud Air Dedicated Cloud, Virtual Private Cloud, or Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand instance: Standard Storage and SSD-Accelerated Storage. vCloud Air Disaster Recovery subscriptions include Standard Storage. The two storage options both allow for growth of virtual machine disks (VMDKs) without downtime and the flexibility to migrate from one tier to the other as needed.

The Ocean State Higher Education Economic Development and Administrative Network (OSHEAN) is a 501c3 non-profit research and education network, based in Rhode Island. Connecting to 150 non-profit institutions, ranging from non-profit organizations to hospitals to the state government, and libraries in the region.
The emergence of cloud services in the industry yielded an important question for OSHEAN – was there an offering they could provide in the cloud area? So they looked beyond cookie-cutter cloud providers that had network services built in. What OSHEAN wanted, was a cloud provider that could help meld their network infrastructure into their cloud architecture.
