VMware vCloud compatibility.
One of the most convenient and comforting aspects of a Bluelock Virtual Datacenter is its complete compatibility with any VMware environment. As a vCloud Datacenter Service Provider, Bluelock is a leading VMware cloud provider that consistently implements the latest vCloud technologies.
Bluelock Virtual Datacenters use VMware’s cloud infrastructure technology, including vCloud Director, vCloud API, VMware vSphere and vShield security. Using a common management and security model, customers can move workloads between internal datacenters and Bluelock Virtual Datacenters.
The Bluelock Virtual Datacenter service offers enormous flexibility, given the Open Virtualization Form (OVF) standard supported by Bluelock and VMware. With a standardized methodology for packaging and distributing virtual machines, customers can freely and seamlessly move workloads between public cloud environments and private clouds. Companies can overcome the uploading and downloading migration challenges and can also feel safe from the risks of vendor lock-in with the ease of moving data and workloads via OVF.
VMware vCloud Connector enables Bluelock customers to move virtual machines, vApps and templates between internal datacenters and Bluelock Virtual Datacenters with a centralized hybrid cloud management user interface. The vCloud Connector plugs into vSphere Client and allows administrators to access their consoles remotely, gain deep visibility into virtual resource allocation and consumption and connect and manage all virtual and cloud environments.
