Convirture Announces Webinar: Building the Hybrid Cloud with VMware and Amazon EC2

Learn how to enforce quotas on Amazon Web Services, and convert VMware virtual machines into a private cloud

SAN MATEO, Calif. - Convirture announces a free webinar on Thursday, November 14, 2013, that will show how to manage VMware and Amazon infrastructure from a single platform, and deliver responsive new hybrid-cloud services.

“Often we encounter situations where enterprise IT organizations have invested in data centers using VMware, then discover that their business units have independently adopted Amazon EC2,” said Arsalan Farooq, CEO of Convirture. “These loosely managed – and sometimes unmanaged – AWS resources outside of IT sometimes lead to financial surprises or security issues. Rather than fight this approach, we feel there is an opportunity to bring these best-of-breed platforms together to offer hybrid cloud services that deliver new capabilities.”

The webinar will cover:

  • Managing VMware and Amazon infrastructure with a single unified management application;

  • Converting VMware virtual servers into a private cloud, with full support for self-service, quota management and multi-tenancy;

  • Enforcing user and quota management for Amazon accounts;

  • Provisioning self-service “Virtual Data Centers” from a combination of VMware and Amazon EC2 resources.
