vCloud Air – concepts and components

Now that we have seen what cloud computing is, and what its features and benefits are, let's dive into the crux of the book itself by introducing VMware vCloud Air.

VMware vCloud Air is basically a public cloud platform that is built on two of VMware's flagship products: the virtualization and consolidation engine called VMware vSphere, and the multi-tenant cloud platform called VMware vCloud Director.

Organizations can run their existing workloads as well as launch new apps and services on VMware vCloud Air with ease, thus allowing them the freedom and flexibility to extend their existing datacenters into the cloud.
