An Asia-based cloud services and managed hosting provider said it has recently achieved validation for VMware vCloud Powered status, a VMware partner program that distinguishes service providers from the rest.
ICONZ-Webvisions, a Singapore-based company, said the distinction for its enterprise-class service can help assure its customers that the cloud services it is offering is based on the VMware cloud computing technologies VMware vSphere and VMware vCloud Director.
VMware said its VMware vCloud Powered program also allows its partners to accelerate their time to market with the robust virtualisation platform as the foundation for its cloud services. Partners who have achieved the status can also grow their customer base as vCloud Powered services are compatible with existing VMware environments at 250,000 customers accounts, thus, enabling vCloud API portability.
Customers of ICONZ-Webvisions can easily move their workloads from their VMware vSphere-based virtualised or private cloud environments to a VMware vCloud Powered service provider, and even back again. VMware said this application portability enables their customers to be more efficient and responsive to their business needs.
“The VMware vCloud Powered program was developed to enable our service provider partners to differentiate themselves and help them bring their enterprise-class cloud services to market in this competitive landscape,“ said Nicholas Tan, country manager, VMware Singapore. “We look forward to supporting ICONZ-Webvisions further as it delivers on the agility and performance customers are looking for in the cloud computing landscape.”
ICONZ-Webvisions said it sought VMware vCloud Powered validation “to expand its enterprise-class cloud solutions, while providing the security and agility customers require in their cloud solutions.”
