VMware Hybrid Cloud Extension

Hybrid becoming reality: Application mobility and infrastructure hybridity for all types of vSphere cloud infrastructures

Seamlessly migrate your datacentre into the cloud

Hybrid Cloud Extension services offer high-performance, secure and optimised connections that guarantee large-scale application mobility across all types of on-premises vSphere infrastructures, and the OVH Private Cloud. Your newly-extended network will work the same way as your local one, and you will be able to migrate workloads without any downtime. The Hybrid Cloud Extension technology condenses multi-site resources, and presents them to applications as a continuous hybrid cloud, providing you with a true hybrid cloud infrastructure. You can also migrate VMware NSX security policies, in order to maintain the same security controls in the cloud.

Key features

Simple scheduling and advanced compatibility

You won’t need to upgrade your existing VM/vSphere environment or reallocate your IP addresses, which reduces the amount of initial scheduling and configuration required for a successful migration.

A premium, all-in-one business recovery plan

Relies on vSphere replication services to supply a premium, all-in-one BRP solution for vSphere environments.

L2 extended network

Make the cloud an extension of your on-site datacentre. In just a few clicks, you can set up and deconstruct fully-automated tunnels.

Simplified workload migrations

Migrate active workloads without any downtime. With the Hybrid Cloud Extension service, you also have the flexibility to use replication-based migration to mass-migrate VMs, with minimal downtime.

Cloud and local extension

Extend your networks by integrating on-site and off-site resources with easy migration, both to and from the cloud.

Software-controlled RAM

With intelligent routing, a selection of multi-level WAN pathways, and traffic management that takes replication and WAN optimisation technology into account, your connection to vCloud Air, powered by OVH, will look as though it is a part of your local network.

Security policy migration

Migrate your VMs to the cloud, and keep them on the same L2 extended network segment. To migrate your applications seamlessly, you can also migrate your security policies.
