Cloud Carib Ltd., an offshore cloud server provider, has announced that its Bahamas-based public cloud hosting service has achieved VMware vCloud Powered status. “We are thrilled to receive this important validation for our service”, said Stelios Xeroudakis, Director of Cloud Carib.
“We believe with the increased global awareness for data protection, the demand for advanced cloud hosting services in offshore jurisdictions is only going to grow,” Xeroudakis added. “This validation exhibits our commitment to provide advanced, secure cloud services based on VMware’s leading technology to customers looking for data protection in the cloud.”
Cloud Carib sought VMware vCloud Powered validation in order to provide clients with the assurance that they can securely connect an internal cloud server environment with their cloud resources hosted at Cloud Carib, allowing them to seamlessly migrate their important applications while augmenting their on-premise infrastructure. Cloud Carib also provides a cross-connect option for Bahamas-based customers, where they can privately connect existing hardware to cloud resources through dedicated circuits.
Customers of Cloud Carib have the ability to move workloads from their VMware vSphere-based virtualized or private cloud hosting environment to the VMware vCloud Powered cloud servers and back again.
“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,” said FJ Gould, Area Partner Director, Latin America, VMware. “We look forward to supporting Cloud Carib further as it delivers on the agility and performance customers are looking for in the cloud computing landscape.”
