VMware vCloud Hybrid Service Now Generally Available in Europe

After a long time in beta phase finally vmware launched its GA version of their public cloud offering. Last year I was able to do an evaluation of this service, it was pretty good. In less than a year since launch, vCloud Hybrid Service has made substantial ground in the compliance space. To date, VMware has successfully attained ISO 27001 certification, completed examinations for HIPAA / HITECH, SOC 2 Type 1, SOC 1 (SSAE 16 / ISAE 3402) Type 2, and SOC 2 Type 2 on vCloud Hybrid Service.


Choose between a Dedicated Cloud or a Virtual Private Cloud


VMware vCloud Hybrid Service is available in two service options, giving you the flexibility and scalability you need to meet your organization’s requirements. A dedicated cloud provides you with a physically isolated infrastructure, giving you your own private cloud instance and the most control over your resources. A virtual private cloud provides you with logically isolated infrastructure, with fully private networking and resource pools. Below is the spec of the two service offerings Both the Dedicated Cloud and Virtual Private Cloud begin with a core subscription model. What is included in a “Core” package?

vCloud Hybrid Service Core packages include all the service components required to provision your service, but the capacities are different for Dedicated Cloud and Virtual Private Cloud. The capacities for each are as follows:


When I need more capacity than what is included in a Core or how do I add it? For that we need to add the resource as a UNIT, an UNIT is a predefined capacity like the below
