AT&T Synaptic Compute as a Service with VMware vCloud Datacenter Service is the carrier’s new enterprise-class cloud service it says combines its virtual private networking (VPN) strengths with those from cloud infrastructure software developer VMware.

Like AT&T’s other cloud offers, the operator says “this new cloud capability is embedded directly into its network. This means compute and storage services can be scaled, managed, routed and delivered to business customers, down to virtually any fixed or mobile device, quickly and flexibly, on demand, with enterprise-grade security and performance.” It is available immediately in the United States, with global availability expected by year’s end.

The upgraded service allows VMware’s more than 350,000 customers to extend their private clouds across and into AT&T’s network-based cloud using AT&T’s VPN. Users can provision and scale compute resources, and they can shift workloads between their private clouds and AT&T’s network-based cloud. It also supports bursting, data center extensions, disaster recovery, and mobile application development and deployment.

"AT&T’s participation in the VMware vCloud Datacenter Services program creates a new cloud offer for our customers that harnesses the security, performance and reliability of AT&T’s network-based cloud with the industry-leading VMware vCloud platform that is the standard datacenter environment for our enterprise customers," comments Dan Chu, vice president/Cloud Infrastructure and Services at VMware.
