Globe Telecom announced that its cloud computing services have achieved VMware vCloud® Powered status, illustrating Globe Telecom’s cloud services are underpinned by VMware’s leading virtualization and cloud computing technology based on VMware vSphere® and VMware vCloud Director.
A member of the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP), Globe Telecom’s VMware vCloud Powered service delivers 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.
“As the telco needs of business customers continue to evolve, we at Globe are ready to provide cloud computing solutions that will allow companies to gain access to the latest technologies without purchasing expensive servers and hardware. As equipment that support operations are outsourced to a virtual environment, our clients can now focus more on making their businesses grow,” said Jesus C. Romero, Head of Globe Business, the unit in Globe Telecom that serves small, medium and large enterprises. “Moreover, with the VMware vCloud® Powered status of our cloud services, we reaffirm our commitment to provide superior cloud computing experience as the solutions enabler and partner of the top corporations in the country.”
“The VMware vCloud® Powered program enables our service provider partners to differentiate themselves and help them bring their enterprise-class cloud services to market,” Ed Lenta, General Manager, VMware ASEAN. “We look forward to supporting Globe further as it delivers on the agility and performance customers are looking for in the cloud computing landscape.”
Customers of Globe 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.
Globe sought VMware vCloud® Powered validation as part of its ongoing quest to offer enterprises a simple, cost effective transition of workloads into a cloud environment that provides high levels of flexibility and access to the latest infrastructure technologies.
