Cloud Storage Tiers

Leverage multiple Cloud Storage Tiers

Over the past few months I have been working on a number of projects within the vCloud Hybrid Service. One of these projects has been working with Storage Tiers in the cloud.  Recently vCloud Hybrid Service launched new tier of storage Standard Storage.  Offering multiple storage tiers is a critical part of  delivering cloud services to consumers who needed different levels of service. Multiple Cloud Storage Tiers I wanted to link to a couple of articles over on the VMware vCloud blog that I think are important to read and understand when considering how to architect your cloud workloads. VMware vCloud Hybrid Service Standard Storage Tier Mix and Match Storage Tiers The two articles above really demonstrate the power of how you can architect your workloads to leverage different cost models, based on your requirements for performance vs cost, and how simple it is to implement these deployments into Infrastructure […]

vCloud Hybrid Service launches two new offerings

Yesterday vCloud Hybrid Service launched two new offerings and released them into the public cloud.  This is of personal interest to me as I was the Tech Marketing lead for these two new releases.  For me, being part of the team that is launching these offerings, and the rapid speed of delivery and growth within VMware’s vCloud Hybrid Service gives me great pleasure, and pride.  Anyway, lets get on with the technical stuff.
