We are continuing to expand vCloud Hybrid Service and broadening our footprint in the US, adding a fourth location in Dallas, TX. The Dallas data center is a great location for Southern and Central U.S. businesses, and for an East or West coast company looking for a secondary data center location. You can purchase cloud capacity in the Dallas location immediately. Pricing for this location is identical to our current prices in Las Vegas, NV, Santa Clara, CA and Sterling, VA, and is always posted on our website here.
Within the vCloud Hybrid Service web portal, you can see all your virtual data centers in all locations from one screen. You can programmatically manage your cloud via the API URL shown in the console. Massimo Re Ferre, one of our consulting architects, has two blog postings on how to use vCloud Hybrid Service via APIs here and here.
Since general availability of the vCloud Hybrid Service just over two months ago in September, we have seen a tremendous uptake of the service from organizations looking to expand their infrastructure to vCloud Hybrid Service across a wide variety of industries. Organizations from cutting-edge mobile gaming companies to local governments to retailers have chosen to run their existing and new applications on vCloud Hybrid Service. I’d like to invite you to join us today, November 19 at 9 a.m. PST / 12 noon EST for the live webcast to discover the power of hybrid cloud, as we celebrate the opening of our new vCloud Hybrid Service Data Center. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear from leading retailer Columbia Sportswear and how they plan to use vCloud Hybrid Service in their IT environment as part of this event – you can register here for the webcast.
