BlueLock and VMware Partner on New Cloud Services

VMware vCloud Datacenter Service and BlueLock CloudConnector enable administrators to more quickly provide compatible cloud resources to business units.

BlueLock and VMware Partner on New Cloud Services

VMware vCloud Datacenter Service and BlueLock CloudConnector enable administrators to more quickly provide compatible cloud resources to business units.

Cloud hosting and managed IT services provider BlueLock announced its partnership with VMware last week at VMworld. The announcement coincides with the beta availability of a new cloud service, called VMware vCloud Datacenter Service.

According to BlueLock, it is one of three companies offer the vCloud Datacenter Service beta.

Along with the announcement of the service, BlueLock also introduced beta availability of BlueLock CloudConnector, a plug-in that enables VMware customers to view and manage private cloud environments and public VMware vCloud Datacenter Service resources in a single interface.

BlueLock’s public cloud is delivers auditable security and performance features, including layer 2 isolation, role-based access control, and LDAP integration in a SAS 70 type II certified data center.

†BlueLock’s use of the same VMware technology provides a common management and security model that enables application portability across internal data centers and all VMware vCloud Datacenter services.†

BlueLock CloudConnector for VMware vCloud Director enables current VMware customers to view and manage existing VMware environment (private cloud) and BlueLock’s VMware-based public cloud resources in the VMware vSphere Client control panel. “If you know how to manage your virtual machines with the VMware vSphere Client, you know how to manage our cloud with BlueLock CloudConnector,” says BlueLock CTO Pat O’Day.

Indeed, BlueLock CloudConnector sports functionality designed to complement VMware vCloud Director and its ability to move workloads between VMware-compatible clouds (public and/or private) in a secure environment.

“Enterprise IT is being challenged to provide agility to their business units by leveraging cloud computing,” says O’Day. “Today, business units are bypassing central IT to access the cloud on their own, and organizations are encountering unintended consequences of compromising compliance, security, and an organizational lack of visibility to these workloads. Furthermore, these workloads are not easily migrated back to the data center due to incompatible technology,” said O’Day. “VMware vCloud Datacenter Service and BlueLock CloudConnector gives administrators the ability to more quickly provide compatible cloud resources to their business units so IT is able to regain control and visibility of their IT workloads.”

BlueLock hosted VMware vCloud Datacenter Service with BlueLock CloudConnector is available immediately for beta. To get started, VMware customers must contact BlueLock for a beta account, then download and install the BlueLock CloudConnector into their VMware vSphere Client interface. Additional capabilities will be rolled out in general availability planned for later this year.†
