With the event of the 21 May, VMware (with Pat Gelsinger, CEO, Carl Eschenbach, COO and Bill Fathers, GM, Hybrid Cloud Services) has announced a new vCloud Hybrid service.

Built on the foundation of VMware vSphere and leveraging VMware’s software-defined data center technologies, vCloud Hybrid Service will provide an easy, fast path for VMware customers to achieve the agility and efficiency of the public cloud at infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) level.

Since 2008, VMware is pushing on a model for IT that spans multiple data centers, leveraging a multi-cloud – or hybrid – architecture. As a result, today there are more than 200 vCloud-certified clouds globally, and VMware will continue to work with our service provider community to make our multi-cloud vision a reality. The vCloud Hybrid Service is a natural extension of this approach, making the benefits of the software-defined data center available to customers – and partners – as a service.

Will be interesting see how many region will be covered (actually seems only North America) and how will work with Cloud Credits.
