Are you a new user of a VMware vCloud® AirTM service solution, considering your move to the hybrid cloud, or looking for use cases to help get you started? Do you have questions, feedback, or an interest in chatting with other vCloud Air users? We have a solution: The VMware vCloud Air Community, a safe-haven for vCloud Air users to openly discuss their successes and struggles while using any service in the vCloud Air portfolio, including Virtual Private Cloud, Dedicated Cloud, and Disaster Recovery. This forum is designed to quickly answer users’ questions and concerns about vCloud Air by hearing from fellow users and vExperts. There are also various resources, tutorials, and updates to help you get started with vCloud Air right from day one.

If you are a first time visitor, or have previously visited the vCloud Air Community, now is the time to take another look- the page recently got a refresh. With vCloud Air users’ needs in mind, the forum was redesigned to improve users’ access to vCloud Air discussions and service resources. As follows is a walkthrough of how to navigate and utilize the new vCloud Air Community and the new features it offers.

When you first visit the vCloud Air Community, you will land on the overview tab. From here, you can get involved by starting a discussion, learning more about the different services, viewing service demos/tutorials, and reviewing recent discussions. The ability to start or join a discussion is a key feature of the community, as it allows you to tap into the knowledge of vCloud Air technical experts and other vCloud Air users. The forum is a fast and convenient way to ask questions, voice feedback and understand how others are using vCloud Air. You can also help other users solve their complications and get started with the service by posting about your vCloud Air experience.
