vCloud Powered Services
Organizations of all types can employ VMware vCloud Powered Services to create a true hybrid cloud environment. These services leverage the same VMware technology architecture and platform that many big enterprises have used to build their own virtualized data centers. Thus, vCloud Powered Services enable IT to provision public cloud resources easily that are compatible with their present infrastructure, in addition to securely and quickly extending their internal virtualized infrastructure into the public cloud.
Creating a secure public cloud using vCloud Powered services
vCloud Powered Services are built using VMware vCloud Director and VMware vSphere. This distinct combination provides total multi-level security and a multitenant architecture that decreases complexity and ensures policy implementation that’s consistent with your internal datacenter.
When you consider the hypervisor level, VMware’s ESXi hypervisor guarantees complete isolation of virtual machines and storage. With respect to applications, VMware vCloud Security and Networking offers application-aware firewalling, access controls that are role-based, and zone as well as policy enforcement. When it comes to network-level protections, you get to enjoy web load balancing, comprehensive perimeter security, prevention of cross-tenant leakage, site-to-site VPN and other relevant services for streamlined operations. Another notable VMware benefit is vCloud Director’s Layer 2 isolation of application and network tiers, which allows vCloud Powered Services to run both next-generation and legacy applications.
