VMware vCloud Availability Logical Architecture

VMware vCloud Availability Logical Architecture

VMware recently launched a new version of VMware vCloud Availability for vCloud Director, with the latest version being 1.0.1. I wanted to talk about the VMware vCloud Availability Logical Architecture, and how a public cloud consumer using a vCloud Availability offering from a vCloud Air Network provider can easily build a Disaster Recovery offering. Let’s first quickly look at what it is: The vCloud Availability offering is a warm stand-by capacity failover solution that is easy to deploy and uses the VMware vSphere Replication appliance (VSRA).  This is a single appliance deployed into your on-premises vSphere environment and leverages vSphere Replication to replicate and migrate you’re on-prem virtual machines to the cloud.

Adopt a vCenter – “Adopt a vCenter” enables vCloud Director 8.20 to discover resource pools in existing vCenters and “adopt” them into the vCloud Director management plane, without interruption or downtime. Service Providers deploying VMware vCloud Director […]

Nested ESXi on vCloud Air – Links

So for quite some time now, lots of people keep asking me about running Nested ESXi on vCloud Air and is it possible. The answer to that question is YES, you can run Nested ESXi on vCloud Air today.

I thought it would be good to list all the articles in one place to make it easy for people to find. I […]
