Infrastructure VAD Arrow ECS has been selected as an aggregator for VMware's extension to the vCloud Air Network Program (VCAN). The addition of vCloud Air to the program will allow Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to consume vCloud Air for their own use, paid for on a monthly basis. The selection of Arrow ECS - a recent Global VMware Partner Network Award winner - has been driven by the increasing demand for its cloud solutions from providers and resellers, and will expand the reach of the full VMware portfolio. vCloud Air is a VMware-hosted service which includes virtual private cloud, dedicated cloud, and disaster recovery options. It can be used by MSPs to augment existing platforms, enable global reach, and reduce time to market; all whilst using technology that’s compatible with their existing vCloud environments and familiar to operations teams. Arrow ECS will deliver vCloud Air through its ArrowSphere cloud platform in Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Luxembourg, Morocco, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. ArrowSphere allows MSPs to acquire VMware products in a way that aligns with their subscription-based business models. As well as, providing significant automation to remove the complexities of provisioning, usage management, billing and reporting.
