VMware has announced an early access program for VMware vCloud Air Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) OnDemand. Approved participants will receive a service credit of $1,000 to experiment with vCloud Air. vCloud Air is a cloud platform built around vSphere, giving virtualization admins a way to supplement their local data center with an easy to use extension into the cloud. VMs can be migrated to vCloud Air, spun up there in the first place and moved around between on-premises and cloud environments easily as application needs change over time. OnDemand simplifies consuming the vCloud Air service by offering credit card billing by the minute on a regular monthly schedule without an annual contract.
