NetworkWorld: VMware Makes Cloud Jumping Easy

VMware’s vCloud Connector (VCC) is a free VMware virtual appliance and vSphere plug-in that makes it a snap to transfer VMware virtual machines, templates and vApps between clouds. In a typical VMware cloud setup, if you assume that VMware ESX installations are clouds, one needs to export VMs to a temporary location, then import them to another cloud. VCC does this in one pass, rather than two. VCC links clouds together as an appliance, and completes the task of moving a virtual machine (VM) from one cloud to another without an intermediate stop.
