This is a re-post from David Hill’s Personal Blog site.

I received an email today asking “Hey Dave, where has my subscription cloud gone?” I responded with let me Google that for you… Actually I didn’t because I knew why they were asking.

Last week, VMware announced a new service offering, VMware vCloud® Air™ Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand. Read here all of the details.

This has brought with it a completely new interface for logging into your vCloud Air subscription-based clouds.  It’s actually really straight forward to access all of your subscription-based clouds.

The first thing you notice is that vchs.vmware.com now redirects to vca.vmware.com, presenting you with a different login screen

Let’s log in and see what we find.  In the old days, once we logged in, we would see a list of regions and our clouds underneath these regions.  However with the release of Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand, we have the ability to add different services to our clouds.  When we log in now, we see a totally different window.

Subscription Cloud

To access all of your subscription-based clouds, simply click the “My Subscriptions” tile:

Once you click the highlighted tile, you are presented with all your subscription Dedicated Cloud and Virtual Private Clouds:
