VMware announces integration with Google Cloud Platform services into vCloud Air

VMware last week announced that it will integrate Google Cloud Platform services into its Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) product vCloud Air (formely vCloud Hybrid Service). VMware will offer Google Cloud Storage, Google BigQuery, Google Cloud Datastore and Google Cloud DNS.

VMware will directly connect the services to its vCloud Air solution, so that all traffic will travel over a dedicated private connection to customers. Also Global Support Services (GSS) from VMware will support both the vCloud Air and Google Cloud Platform services. VMware announced that the Google Cloud Services will be made available to user in the first half of 2015.
