STERLING, VA--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2011) - Virtacore Systems, Inc., an industry leader in hybrid cloud services, today announced that it is one of four VMware partners to offer trial cloud services as part of the initial launch of vcloud.vmware.com, an online destination where enterprises can find VMware vCloud® service providers, learn about their capabilities and coverage, and quickly test drive selected cloud services. By participating in vcloud.vmware.com, Virtacore will also offer customers the ability to easily and quickly transfer workloads and data into its cloud service using the upcoming VMware vCloud Connector 1.5, soon to be offered as an integrated web client in vcloud.vmware.com. Virtacore offers VMware vCloud Express and VMware vCloud Powered cloud services.

"Our new VMware vCloud® service provider ecosystem is designed to help customers find a service provider to work with, and to quickly transfer workloads and data to a public cloud based on a consistent and reliable technology stack," said Mathew Lodge, senior director, cloud services, VMware. "By offering a public cloud test drive, partners like Virtacore can make public cloud services attractive and approachable to VMware customers."

Customers can manage and scale their private and public cloud initiatives using common technology based on VMware vSphere® and VMware vCloud Director™, easily moving workloads, templates and virtual machines across a hybrid cloud.

Virtacore offers their customers both private cloud and public VMware vCloud Powered cloud services that are managed through their proprietary Unified Management Portal.
