On stage at VMworld 2012, VMware unveiled the new VMware vCloud Suite 5.1, the first solution to deliver the software-defined datacenter. RiverMeadow Software, a developer of the enCloud software service, is taking advantage of this and the company extended its enCloud service's support for VMware vCloud.
The VMware vCloud Suite is a complete, integrated cloud infrastructure solution that simplifies IT operations while delivering the best SLAs for all applications. It helps realize the agility, efficiency and intelligent operations management of cloud computing.
The enCloud service is an easy-to-access, SaaS (News - Alert)-based, multi-tenant solution that automates the migration of live physical and virtual servers into just about any cloud stack. It supports unlimited concurrent connections.
The automated server migration solution developed specifically for Service Provider IaaS platforms, enCloud software service will now support the VMware vCloud Suite 5.1.
"VMware has a large service provider channel and is one of most respected and one of the largest cloud infrastructure and services vendors in the industry. It was an easy decision to align our resources behind the VMware vCloud platform,” said Mark Shirman, CEO at RiverMeadow. “VMware's commitment to efficiency, agility and choice makes them a perfect partner for our enCloud software service that supports migrations into private, public and hybrid clouds. Our goal is to make cloud onboarding as easy, fast and cost-efficient as possible. Support for the vCloud platform puts that possibility in the hands of thousands of VMware customers."
API integration between the enCloud service and vCloud emphasizes RiverMeadow's commitment to supporting and recognizing VMware as a leading virtualization and cloud infrastructure provider.
API integration between the enCloud service and VMware vCloud Suite 5.1 provides VMware service providers and enterprise customers with SaaS-delivered access to a start-to-finish, automated solution for onboarding physical, virtual and cloud servers into their vCloud stacks.
VMware vCloud Services offer a broad array of VMware-compatible infrastructure clouds built on a secure platform and delivered by vCloud partner service providers, enabling customers to easily extend, manage and scale their datacenter workloads to a public cloud.
"Support for VMware vCloud Suite 5.1 technologies and cloud services is a strategic move for RiverMeadow,” added Shirman. “RiverMeadow's demonstrable integration with the VMware vCloud API is an indication of our strong support for VMware vCloud."
