VMware vCloud Air Expanded to Australia

Company announces general availability of hybrid cloud service in Japan

VMware said it will extend VMware vCloud Air (previously VMware vCloud Hybrid Service) to Australia. Complementing the VMware vCloud Air Network of service provider options, the new Australian service location will provide customers with a hybrid cloud option operated by VMware that addresses local compliance and data protection concerns. The service is expected to be available in Australia in the first half of 2015.

Additionally, the company announced vCloud Air will be generally available in Japan in the coming weeks, after completing a successful beta program that began in July of this year.

“VMware vCloud Air, combined with the VMware vCloud Air Network of service providers makes VMware the largest hybrid cloud network in the Asia Pacific region with more than 40 service locations in Asia,” said Bill Fathers, executive vice president and general manager, Cloud Services Business Unit, VMware. “The new vCloud Air location provides the highly virtualized Australian market with a hybrid cloud service that extends existing investment in VMware vSphere to the public cloud.”

Unlike other public cloud services, VMware vCloud Air enables organizations to extend their on-premises IT infrastructure seamlessly to the public cloud. The resulting hybrid cloud is compatible with customers’ existing applications and allows them to build new cloud-native applications, delivering agility and efficiency to the business in a secure, reliable and compliant manner.

Owned and operated by VMware, initial vCloud Air deployments in Australia will be hosted out of Telstra’s connected data centres “Telstra is focused on simplifying cloud adoption and VMware vCloud Air is a world-class, production-ready environment capable of running our customers’ mission-critical workloads,” said Erez Yarkoni, executive director, Cloud, Telstra Global Enterprise and Services.
