VMware introduced its vCloud Hybrid Service yesterday, an Infrastructure-as-a-Service offering that connects and integrates both onsite and offsite IT environments and enables IT to extend their data centers to the cloud. What you might not know is that SHI is one of the first partners to begin offering vCloud Hybrid Service.
One of the greatest benefits that we see is that vCloud Hybrid Service doesn’t force IT departments to reinvent the wheel. The in-house applications and infrastructure in which they have already invested don’t require reconfiguring, and there isn’t any hardware required. It’s a seamless transition.
Of course, there are considerations that will need to be made and we’ll share those with you in the coming weeks as we begin to migrate customers to this hybrid cloud service. If you want to be one of the first, email me at Ed_McNamara@SHI.com.
