WaterStreet Company Joins VMware vCloud Air Network
VMware (VMW) has approved operational and technology solutions providers WaterStreet Company as the latest member of the vCloud Air Network, meaning the company’s services are compatible with VMware’s virtualization platform.
Operational and technology solutions provider WaterStreet Company has received VMware (VMW) IaaS Powered status for its infrastructure-as-a-service solution, making it the the latest member of the vCloud Air Network.
As a member of the vCloud Air Network, WaterStreet Company will provide its IaaS service to fellow vCloud Air members as a fully compatible solution for use with VMware’s vSphere platform. The Montana-based company primarily serves insurers and reinsurers in the United States, according to the announcement.
The solution allows WaterStreet customers to move workloads from their vSphere-based virtual or private-cloud environments to the VMware IaaS Powered service so they can increase IT agility in their organization, the company said.
WaterStreet Company said it sought VMware IaaS Powered validation to expand its current relationship with the virtualization giant and to improve user responsiveness and agility.
“We chose VMware as our partner years ago and this was the natural progression of services,” said Gregg Barrett, president of WaterStreet Company, in a statement. “It’s great to be a member of the vCloud Air Network to ensure the highest level of service to our customers.”
Last month, operations as a service managed provider Peak Hosting also gained VMware IaaS Powered status for its own OaaS solution. While the vCloud Air network was brought online last August, VMware only began offering vCloud Air as a managed service in April.
