Hybrid Cloud

  • The Access Alto Cloud can tightly integrate with your on-premise VMware infrastructure using vCloud Connector, enabling "single pane of glass" management for both your cloud and on-premise resources.
  • Organisations leversging hybrid cloud can benefit from a truly dynamic infrastructure that can respond to spikes in demand in an instant.  
  • Your on-site VMware hosts gain access to near unlimited resource providing a new level of flexibility when it comes to short term projects or migrations.  
  • vCloud Connector is a free download from VMware which plugs in to your existing VMware vCenter. Once installed your virtual datacentre in the Access Alto cloud appears in exactly the same way as your in-house VMware infrastructure. It's this tight integration that allows you to move your virtual machines back and forth between the Access Alto cloud with such ease.
