Press release   •   Mar 22, 2012 10:44 GMT

Leading cloud computing provider, Commensus today announced that its C-VIP Secure Cloud Platform 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.

As a member of the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP), Commensus delivers a set of cloud computing services across a secure cloud platform, supporting the largest set of existing applications and offering distinctive application mobility uniquely available from VMware.

“We’re delighted to be awarded the vCloud Powered status from VMware. This confirms Commensus as a leading virtualisation and cloud computing specialist within EMEA”, said Alex Parker, Chief Technical Officer at Commensus. “Gartner is forecasting significant growth in the hybrid cloud space throughout 2012 and our partnership with VMware helps us deliver third generation Hybrid technology 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 EMEA Director at VMware. “We look forward to supporting Commensus further as it delivers on the agility and performance customers are looking for in the cloud computing landscape.”

Customers of Commensus 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.

Commensus sought VMware vCloud® Powered validation in order to demonstrate their ongoing commitment to delivering a third generation Hybrid Cloud. Utilising VMware’s vCloud Director, Commensus can now help customers to leverage their existing IT assets to increase agility and performance. As a validated service provider, Commensus can now provide users with enhanced responsiveness, improved security and reduced IT costs through increased consolidation, task automation and simplified management.
