VMware vCloud Connector

Contributor(s): Tom Walat

VMware vCloud Connector is a free product that allows an administrator on the vSphere platform to move virtual machines between servers, VMware public cloud providers and the vCloud Air service, through a single interface for private and public infrastructures.

The vCloud Connector product features the vCloud Connector UI, the vCloud Connector server and vCloud Connector nodes. The server and nodes are virtual appliances. The server appliance maintains the nodes, oversees the state of vCloud Connector and displays the vCloud Connector UI. The node appliance coordinates the relocating of VMs between clouds.

In addition to vSphere, vCloud Connector requires the installation of vCloud Director.
