De ce OmniVCloud?



Tailored to a certain need rather than being tailored to how the technology works, the consumer does not need any on-premises hardware or software, except what is used to consume/use the cloud service (for example, a browser), and only needs to care what a service does, not how it's implemented. The provider is responsible for optimizing everything below the service boundary hiding complexity from the consumer.

Scalable and Elastic

This attribute refers to the ability of the system to dynamically and fluidly scale up and down, and reallocate resources across consumers in a granular fashion. Automatic on-demand allocation and deallocation of resources is at the heart of elasticity.

Metered by use

Services are tracked with usage metrics to enable multiple payment models.


Services share a pool of resources to build economies of scale, IT resources being used with maximum efficiency.

Uses Internet Technologies

Services are delivered using Internet identifiers, formats and protocols.

There are countless blogs dedicated to virtualization and Cloud Computing in general. These links below will launch you straight into the center of virtualization blogging on the VMware side of things.

VMware technology

VMware technology (and cloud computing because of it) has a very healthy blog scene, partially because of the community-centric mindset that VMware has always had.

The community outreach guy, John Troyer (@jtroyer on Twitter), is the man of the hour at VMware, making sure their blog has a healthy contribution rate and many contributors. He writes a blog posting himself now and then too.

From the main VMTN blog page, there are many employee as well as other virtualization related blogs.

You can find the VMTN blog aggregate at:

One of the main contributors to the VMTN blog has his own blog site as well. One of the most prolific bloggers about VMware I think I've ever seen, Duncan Epping (@DuncanYB on Twitter):

Jason Boche (@jasonboche on Twitter) is a nuts and bolts guy with a lot of experience with VMware and virtualization technology. He's been around since the early days of ESX Server:
