Infrastructure as a service provider Atlantic Metro Communications announced on Wednesday that its virtual private data center as a service has achieved VMware vCloud Powered status.
This announcement comes a week after web hosting provider Virtual Internet achieved VMware vCloud Powered Status for its public cloud hosting service.
This certification shows its customers that its cloud services are run by VMware’s virtualization and cloud computing technology, VMware vSphere and VMware vCloud Director.
Atlantic Metro is a member of the VMware Service Provider Program, according to the press release.
“After extensive testing, we chose VMware for its virtualization and cloud computing infrastructure platform because of proven success in the enterprise market space. VMware’s channel partner model and rapid time to market also made the VMware vCloud Powered service the right choice for our company,” Stephen Klenert, co-founder of Atlantic Metro Communications said in a statement.
According to the press release, customers are able to move workloads from their VMware vSphere-based virtualized or private cloud environment to the VMware vCloud Powered service and back again. This control was part of the reason Atlantic Metro sought VMware certification, according to the press release.
“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,” Don Schleicher, vice president, service providers, VMware said in a statement. “We look forward to supporting Atlantic Metro further as it delivers on the agility and performance customers are looking for in the cloud computing landscape.”
