VMware's vCloud Connector

Hybrid Cloud with VMware vCloud Connector

Connect to Cirracore Enterprise Cloud from Your VMware vCenter Environment

VMware vCloud Connector simplifies the process of moving workloads between clouds by enabling vSphere administrators to manage resources in their familiar vCenter management console.

vCloud Connector uses the vCloud API to do its magic by monitoring vClouds and managing transfers between vSphere and your Virtual Datacenter. This means that any cloud service using the full vCloud API v1.0 will work with vCloud Connector.

Unified View into Cloud Workloads

Using the same vSphere® client that you use today, you can now view, copy and operate on workloads, including virtual machines, vApps and templates across internal data center and private or public clouds like the VMware vCloud Hybrid Service. From the workloads view, you can view and manage virtual machines and vApps. From the catalogs view, you can view and manage your templates. Add up to ten public or private clouds to vCloud Connector to maximize your hybrid cloud footprint.

 

Connect from vCenter

Content Sync

You can now manage a single content catalog across your entire cloud environment using Content Sync. With Content Sync, a source catalog is defined and all other “synchronized” catalogs will get any new templates added to the source. This facilitates greater collaboration by bringing remote locations together with the source. This also eases the management of multiple catalogs, increasing operational efficiency and deployment turnaround time. Content Sync is an advanced feature of vCloud Connector, available with the VMware vCloud Suites and the vCloud Hybrid Service.

Evolve Your Data Center

Easily attach compatible, scalable and compliant cloud resources to your private vSphere data center by using vCloud Connector and the vCloud Hybrid Service. Built upon VMware vSphere and vCloud APIs, vCloud Connector allows customers to connect VMware vSphere or VMware® vCloud Director®-based private and public clouds and manage them under a single interface, evolving your data center into a hybrid cloud.
