vCloud Air Valuable Features

Saurabh Chandratre
Director Solutions Architect - EMEA & APAC at Blue Medora

All three components of the vCloud Air are equally valuable and important, i.e., IaaS, DaaS and RaaS.

I like the Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) offering compared to the Dedicated Cloud. It gives me the flexibility to utilize the pay-as-you-go option. You can run your workloads in an active state at reasonable prices. I have seen lots of companies use it for their development work, as well as for hosting SQL and Exchange Servers, i.e., in the active-passive mode instead of Replication (RaaS).

Disaster Recovery is also a great feature that is affordable and easy to use. Disaster Recovery is a great component of the vCloud Air, where you can protect the on-premises cloud infrastructure, by providing self-service recovery options using the vSphere Replication.

Some of the features that really stand out and I have used in my projects are:

  • Direct Connect: It provides high speed and private line connectivity.
  • Offline Data Transfer: For encrypted bulk data transport.
