VMware vCloud Director Beta Program launched by StratoGen

VMware hosting company StratoGen today announced public availability of its vCloud Director Beta Program. A leader in the cloud hosting market, StratoGen offers a first chance to test VMware’s new infrastructure management product.

Karl Robinson, Director of StratoGen, said: “As a VMware partner we have worked extensively with VMware on this product and are proud to be the first hosted VMware company to offer vCloud Director on a beta test basis. Organisations want the ability to control their external public cloud resources to the same level as their internal or on-site clouds, and this is where vCloud director really shines. The final phase of our beta program will allow us to evaluate real world usage of this exciting new product by such organisations.”

VMware products are already market leading in terms of stability and market adoption, but vCloud Director brings a new level of sophistication to cloud hosting.

Technical Director David Elliott comments “vCloud Director allows us to offer a slice of the StratoGen VMware platform as a virtual data centre to clients. Using a self service portal, clients can then create virtual machines, build out complex VMware vApps, or create routed networks and firewalled internetworking with ease. The power of this product is firmly in the hands of our users, allowing them to build their own infrastructure, the way they want to. “

The beta program is available to interested parties on a limited numbers basis. For further information please visit

Excellent perspective on VMWare’s initiatives. Great to see Hybrid clouds becoming more prevalent this year than last. David Davis, a recognized VMWare expert, recently wrote on the VMW Blog “What I have heard most about SkyTap is that they "make the cloud easy". After seeing their variety of integrated cloud features and their impressive interface, I can see why. The Skytap cloud can be used for application development, app testing, migration, virtual private clouds, virtual training, sales demonstrations, and proof of concept. I am especially impressed by the virtual private cloud feature that allows enterprises to connect their internal network to the Skytap cloud, securely, thus enabling the hybrid cloud”.
