VMware upgrades disaster relief on public cloud

Cloud and virtual machine firm throws in more network features too.

By Jimmy Nicholls

Virtualisation specialist VMware has updated its disaster recovery and advanced networking services on its public cloud platform, vCloud Air, with immediate availability.

Customers can now copy workloads from vCloud Air to their primary servers over the network after a systems failure, will have access to several recovery snapshots for backup, and can set up an automated system for maintaining services during involuntary downtime.

They will also be able to isolate groups and users for security purposes, have access to Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) and Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) for use in routing, and have greater options in terms of scalability and virtual private network (VPN) support.

Bill Fathers, EVP and GM of the Cloud Services Business Unit at VMware, said: "Public cloud is a part of every VMware client’s view of the future because it helps them move faster and get far greater value for money from their IT Infrastructure."

"VMware vCloud Air provides our clients with these benefits for both new and existing applications. The service enhancements announced today reflect strong client interest in a public cloud platform compatible with existing vSphere environments."

VMware has also announced vCloud Air Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand, a service which allows you to pay for the resources that you use on a minute-by-minute basis, which includes $300 (£200) of free service.
