ITaaS 4318 – Insights
For the last session of Partner Exchange 2015 Day #1, I attend the ITaaS4318 session aimed at members of the vCloud Air Network. Presented by Amit Gupta, it covered some insight into the vCloud Director for Service Providers roadmap and some pre-recorded demo’s of portal applications from OnApp and AirVM (see below for videos of the portal integration with vCloud Director for both vendors)
Unfortunately I can not post some of the content in regards to the roadmap, but it certainly looks exciting and I am expecting it to be well accepted into the vCloud Air Network. The roadmap covered some example integration and services that will be coming in the future product releases. As this was a roadmap session, no dates or versions were discussed when the integration and services will become available for Service Providers.
I think the session should have been more focused on what VMware are doing with the product for the vCloud Air Network, but was impressed to see very polished portals from OnApp and AirVM that should drive more implementations of vCloud Director into the vCloud Air Network.
I did not get a lot of time in the Solutions Exchange but I would like too spend some time on both OnApp and AirVM’s products and provide more detail as to how these can be consumed and productised to add value to vCloud Air Network partners. Hopefully prior to the end of Partner Exchange I will be able to provide some follow up posts on both products.
