First Impressions of VMworld from a Service Provider’s Perspective

In addition to the record-setting Vegas heat at VMworld 2017, this was a show chock full of surprises. The ServerCentral Managed Services team was able to sneak away from supporting our amazing customers to attend the show this year.

An Introduction to ServerCentral’s Enterprise Cloud

Part I: The Basics

ServerCentral’s enterprise cloud utilizes VMware’s vSphere platform. Powered by vCloud Director, we offer on-demand, self-service Enterprise Cloud services. For those most familiar with VMware private clouds (think ESXi, vCenter, etc.), managing cloud infrastructure from vCloud Director is a fundamentally different way of thinking. No longer do you have to worry about hardware, hypervisors, or maintenance. Our intent is to offer peace of mind that is seldom found in the IT world. 

Our enterprise cloud is architected to offer flexibility, convenience and the much sought-after single pane of glass.

Understanding how our Enterprise Cloud functions is the key to utilizing the platform to its highest potential. In this first part of our Enterprise Cloud series we will discuss how our platform is organized and how to spin up your first virtual machines in the cloud.
