vCloud Air + Google Integration

Announced January 29th, VMware’s Cloud Service vCloud Air will add Google Cloud Platform Services.  Google Cloud Storage, BigQuery, Cloud Datastore and Cloud DNS will be integrated into vCloud Air and operate just like other services from VMware, complete with authorization, authentication and terms of service.

This means vCloud Air customers will have access to the new services under their existing services contracts with vCloud Air. Customers simply pay for the Google Cloud Platform services they consume.

Furthermore, based on the terms of the VMware – Google partnership, Google will never be able to use VMware customer information and in fact will not have visibility into which customers are using their services – Certainly a very important consideration for customers.
