Platform & Architecture

vCloud Air Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand is an IaaS compute offering. It’s based on the same vSphere design architecture as Dedicated Cloud and Virtual Private Cloud. But unlike the subscription-based services, in the on-demand model there are no “reserved” resource commitments or long-term contracts.

VMware differentiates itself by providing a hybrid platform that:

– Requires no VM conversions
– Offers seamless extensible networking
– Is optimized for both existing apps and new apps
– Enables you to choose the exact VM dimensions you want with any ration of CPU, memory and disc.

What Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand Provides:

■ Instant Access:
With Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand, you can access self-service cloud computing services with nothing more than a credit card and browser.

■ On-Demand Scale
Scale up and down based on demand or budget. Provision new infrastructure in minutes with no upfront cost or capacity commitments.

■ Resizable Resources
Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand provides a virtually unlimited resource pool, with custom builds and live reallocations of CPU, memory and storage.

■ Testing & Development
Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand gives you an ideal environment to test and develop your existing and new applications, accurately and efficiently.

■ Next-Generation Application Hosting
Develop, test and host next-generation and mobile applications. Run your applications onsite, offsite or in any combination.

■ Value and Assurance
Turn static capital costs into pay-as-you-go operating expenses. And use your same VMware management tools, templates and processes.
