Netplan’s Public Cloud Service Attains VMware vCloud® Powered Validation
Coventry, United Kingdom – February 15th, 2012 – Netplan Internet Solutions Ltd today announced that its VMware public cloud service has achieved VMware vCloud Powered status, illustrating to customers that the company’s cloud services are underpinned by VMware’s leading virtualization and cloud computing technology, namely VMware vSphere® and VMware vCloud Director™. A member of the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP), Netplan provides its VMware vCloud Powered service as a set of cloud computing services across a common platform, supporting the largest set of existing applications and offering distinctive application mobility uniquely available from VMware.
In a recent interview Stuart Gibson, Managing Director of Netplan was quoted saying:
“Achieving VMware’s vCloud Powered status is a great milestone for the team here at Netplan, which clearly demonstrates Netplan’s forward thinking and commitment to providing best-in-class public cloud solutions to our customers”
“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 Gavin Jackson, Director, vCloud & Service Providers, EMEA, VMware. “We look forward to supporting Netplan further as it delivers on the agility and performance customers are looking for in the cloud computing landscape.”
Customers of Netplan have the ability to move workloads from their VMware vSphere-based virtualized or private cloud environment to the VMware vCloud Powered service and back again. This application portability is a key differentiator allowing customers to achieve the flexibility and security they need while enabling increased IT agility.
