In the first post I talked about the basic architecture of a large scale hybrid cloud build out, as well as integrating an on premises view environment into the VMware vCloud® Air™ hybrid cloud. Before we go into the architecture solution we need to understand the problem we are trying to solve. For the purposes of continuing we will assume that the VPN’s and networks are already configured and replication is running on the Wiki Server.
Clients can then log in and access the same application, 100% cloud based on desktop and IaaS.
For illustration purposes the logical diagrams below show the on premises environment along with the disaster recovery, and IaaS environments. In the Texas Disaster Recovery Cloud shown below, we can do a full fail over or a test fail over. In order to quickly re-direct a user’s View Client from on premises Horizon View to the DaaS desktop and making it transparent to them you need to get creative. If you are an avid user of DNS for cases like this you should be able to see why I did this. Something you want to make sure of in this setup so that all clients, both desktop and tablet based work, is that you need to use proper certificates.
The hybrid cloud team at VMware is excited to announce the general availability of vCloud Connector 2.6. VMware vCloud Connector links vSphere-based private and public clouds via a single interface, allowing you to manage them as a single hybrid environment.
With vCloud Connector 2.6, VMware has converged the core and advanced versions into a single free edition with access to all vCloud Connector features. Path Optimized Copy with Retry increases the resiliency of the vCloud Connector copy operation.
Configurable Guest Customization settings are now available, including the option to preserve Guest OS settings. A New Direct or Fenced network connection mode for deployment of any vApp to a destination vCloud Director-based cloud.
Overall, we have made substantial investments to improve the reliability and functionality of the product, reducing the on-ramp from onsite data centers to public clouds such as vCloud Hybrid Service.
Download the latest version of vCloud Connector here and read more about this release in the release notes here.


From there, you’ll manage vCloud Connector through the traditional (Windows-only C#) vSphere Client’s Home page under the Solutions menu.
This can all be done from within the vSphere Client, which makes managing multiple vClouds very accessible to virtualization administrators. So all week I have been posting tidbits about the vCloud Director Hybrid cloud I have been building.
Obviously you can choose whomever you want, but in this case we are focussing on providers that are using vCloud Director 5.1 for it’s flexibility and simplicity to build your new organization   Once I have decided on the providers I am going to use the next steps are fairly simple and frankly are no different than you would do if you were building a physical datacenter, except now we are doing a Software Defined Datacenter, (SDDC). Once you have gotten this figure out in your design of the two remote datacenters you can move forward. Here you can basically download and import the vCloud Connector Nodes into your two Public Clouds.
Once you have this you can choose to move templates you already have in your current datacenter, or build fresh ones.
Once you have pre-configured Active Directory Sites and Services in your Physical Datacenter controllers you can install from templates and promote the ones in the other sites. Although this has been a basic study of how you can leverage vCloud Director Hybrid Clouds to expand your enterprise, it should give you a foundation to start thinking about.
Chris is a Consulting Architect with the VMware vCloud Delivery Services team with over 10 years of experience working with IT hardware and software solutions. NOTE:  These are not deployed from OVF with the VMXNET3 interface so for giggles be sure to remove the current interface and add a new one that is using VMXNET3 specifically by checking the “Show Network Adapter Type” box.
Now I was ready to move my Windows template from one cloud to Stratogen so I can continue to work on this expanded vCloud Director Hybrid Cloud setups.
I’ve been playing around with vCloud Connector 2.0 for a few weeks and I’d like to pass along some of the lessons I’ve learned and provide some tips for getting started. First, I should explain what vCloud Connector is – vCloud Connector  is a virtual appliance that allows you to move workloads and virtual machines between clouds.
Speaking of detailed installation walk-throughs, my next post will show you how to install and configure vCloud Connector 2.0.
You can transfer virtual machines (VMs), vApps (collections of VMs with related resource controls and network settings), and templates from one vSphere-based cloud to another.
Yes, advanced edition features such as content sync and data center extension are now free!


We have redesigned the copy operation to include a transfer buffer, before the bits are sent out to the destination node, in the source vCloud Connector node. Sarrel (or Matt Sarrel) is executive director of Sarrel Group, a technology product testing, editorial services, and technical marketing consulting practice based in New York City and San Francisco. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Information Systems from the Daniel Webster College. You will need network access to each server as the portal redirects logins directly to the server.
However, one of the best ways you can get hands-on testing and experience with vCloud  is by signing up for the VMware vCloud Service Evaluation. Sarrel (or Matt Sarrel) is executive director of Sarrel Group, a technology product testing, editorial services, and technical marketing consulting practice based in New York City and San Francisco. You can also set up a content library to distribute and synchronize templates across clouds and extend a single Layer 2 network from your private data center to a vSphere-based public cloud. A VMware vCloud Suite license or VMware vCloud Hybrid Service subscription is no longer required to take advantage of these advanced edition features. The vCloud Service Evaluation is an inexpensive option allowing users to get their feet wet in the public cloud arena (pricing starts at 4 cents an hour). At VMware, in the roles of a Consultant and now Consulting Architect, Chris has guided partners as well as customers in establishing a VMware practice and consulted on multiple customer projects ranging from datacenter migrations to long-term residency architecture support.
Think of this as the server is the gateway that controls the nodes as they prepare and shift workloads between clouds. This gives you the chance to experiment with connecting your internal vSphere environment to a public vCloud Director environment and moving workloads between them. Currently, Chris is working on the newest VMware vCloud solutions and architectures for enterprise-wide private cloud deployments.

    And cloud syncing services are not the as a metaphor, the cloud??simply denotes vast, distant the computer.
