Bluelock Participates in VMware Cloud Credits Purchasing Program
Redeem Cloud Credits to Access Bluelock’s Enterprise Cloud IaaS Offerings
(Indianapolis, Ind. – March 8, 2013) – Bluelock, a certified VMware vCloud® Datacenter provider of virtual datacenters is proud to announce its participation in VMware’s Cloud Credits Purchasing Program. By purchasing cloud credits from a VMware Solution provider, customers can redeem credits over time with service providers such as Bluelock. The pre-paid credits allow business users to gain fast access to public or hybrid cloud services.
VMware cloud credits can be redeemed with participating VMware technology-based Infrastructure-as-a-Service vCloud providers. The program will maximize a business-user’s existing investment in VMware technology by easily connecting to Bluelock’s compatible cloud infrastructure. Companies previously unfamiliar with cloud will gain easy access to take advantage of cloud economics.
