ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CDI Managed Services, a leading provider of hybrid cloud computing and managed IT services, today announced that its cloud computing 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™. A member of the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP), CDI provides its VMware vCloud® Powered service as 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.

“Achieving the VMware vCloud Powered certification solidifies and expands our relationship with VMware and plants their vCloud technology at the core of our cloud computing strategy,” said John Carter, President of CDI Managed Services. “Our Hybrid Cloud service is now well positioned for use by organizations that utilize VMware virtualization and cloud solutions.”

“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 Geoff Waters, senior director, VMware Service Provider Program. “We look forward to supporting CDI further as it delivers on the agility and performance customers are looking for in the cloud computing landscape.”

Customers of CDI 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.

CDI sought VMware vCloud® Powered validation in order to ensure seamless integration with their client’s local private cloud initiatives and to become their trusted partner as they move into the hybrid cloud world. As a validated provider, CDI can now provide users with enhanced responsiveness and agility, and reduced IT costs through increased consolidation, task automation and simplified management.
