What is VMware vCloud Air?


Overview:


vCloud Air is a public cloud platform built on vSphere from VMware. vCloud Air provides a hybrid cloud—a public IaaS that functions as an extension of existing data centers running VMware vSphere, with common management and networking.

In August 2013, general availability (GA) was announced for vCloud Hybrid Service (vCHS). vCloud Hybrid Service was re-branded to vCloud Air in August 2014 and they also announced a cloud computing On Demand program along with  re-branding that allows users to pay only for what each user needs to use for resources



vCloud Air supports more than 5,000 applications and 90+ operating systems certified to run on vSphere. The use of vCloud Air allows seamless workload portability and migration due to vSphere,from an on-premises data center to the cloud and vice versa.
 
Network virtualization allows users to configure firewalls and network to mirror on-site networks, including NAT rules and firewall rules, networks, and public IPs. 

vCloud Air has three infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) subscription service types: 
  • Dedicated cloud
  • Virtual private cloud
  • Disaster recovery


Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand

Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand is self-service on demand cloud computing platform from vCloud Air. This infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) pay-as-you-go offering allows users to consume specific vCPU, storage, vRAM, Network and IP as needed. 

Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand was officially released publicly in January 2015. An initial offering of $300 in service credits to be used in the first 90 days after signing up was also announced.
