Did You Know Virtacore is a Long Time VMware Partner?

We have been Pushing the Development of VMware Solutions to Assist Customers in Solving Business Problems since 2007.

Virtacore is excited to be participating at PEX 2014 – VMware Partner Exchange this week at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Virtacore was nominated at PEX for Partner of the Year. As a cloud services provider and long time partner of VMware, we have helped hundreds of businesses utilize cloud technologies to improve innovation using many of the VMware solutions developed over the years including datacenter and cloud management products vCloud Director, vCenter, vCloud Automation, and the Horizon Desktop as a Service Platform.

These technologies enable our customers to solve problems for their organizations and customers by spinning up production and development services for application management, intelligent databases, SaaS applications, and desktop services on our core infrastructure.

Private Cloud services with Virtacore powered by VMware are not just about technologies in isolation but how these technologies enable business agility, self service automation, cost reduction, and the right approach for certain business requirements.

We recently asked a few of our customers what some of the deciding factors were for choosing a Cloud Services Provider to solve their current business needs. David Cropper, CIO at Mamiye Brothers, Inc. responded referencing our VMware expertise with:

“Service, Service, Service. Their 24x7x365 service and level of support is top notch and really helped us access the cloud. We are currently running our production environment with them. Additionally, we decided to go with Virtacore because of their robust cloud offering which we evaluated and determined a Nimble, NetApp, UCS , VMware enterprise fabric was perfect for us. Last, they also allowed my staff to tour their data center site in Equinix DC10 and we were amazed at how well setup their NOC, security and IaaS platform is.”

Virtacore partnered with the VMware’s internal development team in 2010 to help customize vCloud Director (vCD) integration with our cloud platform. We were the first to integrate vCD into their public cloud product. Virtacore was part of the first beta partners included in the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP). In 2011 at VMworld, Virtacore announced a release of a new robust control panel with vCD. Following the product announcement, Virtacore presented at HostingCon a series of international enterprise customer case studies with Mathew Lodge, VP Cloud Services, VMware and Brian Lillie, CIO, Equinix. Virtacore has also participated on the VMware Customer Advisory Board many times over the past five years as one of their core cloud providers/resellers globally.

Since then we have continued to work closely with the VMware Product Team as VMware evolves up the stack with their cloud services. In 2012-13 we teamed up with VMware to help develop a white-label vCloud service, which VMware rebranded to help admins and app developers give vCloud a test and development services a trial.

We are proud of our past and present work with VMware to help innovate within the cloud service provider space.
