VMware unveils test-drive service for its vCloud platform

vCloud Service Evaluation will offer users with the advantages of a vCloud through testing and experimentation

By CBR Staff Writer

Virtualisation and cloud infrastructure firm VMware has introduced a new online service, vCloud Service Evaluation, which enables customers to test-drive a cloud built on the VMware vCloud platform.

The new test- drive service will allow users to evaluate the advantages of a vCloud easily through hands on testing and experimentation.

It also brings VMware vCloud Director software in action and helps customers experience public cloud through a network of service providers.

VMware’s vCloud Service Evaluation customers can deploy pre-built operating system and application templates and use vCloud Connector to move workloads from their private cloud or VMware vSphere environment.

Following the evaluation, customers can use vCloud Connector to migrate to a vCloud service provider for production vCloud services.

The new service will be available at, where customers can find vCloud service providers and learn about their capabilities and coverage.

VMware Cloud Services vice president Mathew Lodge said: "With the VMware vCloud Service Evaluation, customers will have a quick, simple and low-cost way to evaluate a vCloud so they can understand the value of working with a vCloud service provider and be prepared to make an informed decision on which public cloud best suits them."
