We continue to expand vCloud Hybrid Service and broaden our footprint in the U.S., with the addition of a new data center in Jersey City, NJ. In close proximity to the New York and New England markets, the New Jersey data center is attractive to companies seeking greater resiliency and proximity to their customers, partners and existing data center locations. New Jersey is our sixth data center opened to date, with plans for additional data centers later this year as we continue to expand to meet customer demand. You can purchase cloud capacity in the New Jersey location immediately. Pricing is the same as our other U.S. data centers, and is available here.
VMware vCloud Hybrid Service, built on VMware vSphere, enables customers to extend the same applications, networking, management, operations and tools across both on-premises and off-premises environments. Customers can manage and automate vCloud Hybrid Service from their vSphere console, vCloud Automation Center, vCloud Application Director and their own tools using the vCloud API.
Designed to serve the growing demand for vCloud Hybrid Service, the New Jersey data center delivers a high performance software-defined data center architecture including:
- Redundant VM Service – Unlike other clouds, VMware provides a service level agreement for VM availability, backed by fully redundant server infrastructure using VMware vSphere vMotion. This maximizes the performance and uptime of customer applications, automatically live migrating them to other compute nodes if there is server congestion or equipment failure.
- Enterprise-class Storage – VMware uses flash-accelerated disk storage, 10G networking and congestion control to meet the performance demands of today’s enterprise applications cost-effectively.
- Full Network Virtualization – At no extra cost, VMware customers can deploy a rich set of load balancers, firewalls and VPNs using virtual networks, switches and routers to replicate their physical networking configuration.
Our hybrid approach helps enterprise customers use the public cloud with an infrastructure that matches their existing architectures and data location, giving IT all the freedom of the public cloud with the manageability and security they expect from their existing data center or private cloud. For IT departments, a hybrid cloud can remove traditional barriers to innovation and radically change the relationship between IT and the business.
