Logicalis, an international provider of integrated information and communications technology (ICT) solutions and services (http://www.us.logicalis.com), today announced that its Logicalis Enterprise Cloud (LEC) public cloud service has achieved VMware vCloud® Powered status, illustrating to customers that the company´s cloud services are underpinned by VMware´s leading virtualization and cloud computing technology, namely VMware vSphere® and VMware vCloud Director. A member of the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP), the Logicalis Enterprise Cloud integrates the VMware vCloud technology to extend the inherent security and workload isolation that enables Logicalis to provide highly scalable cloud services to its clients.
“Logicalis is pleased to have received this important designation. Being recognized with the VMware vCloud Powered status gives users of the Logicalis Enterprise Cloud yet another way to know that they have chosen a cloud partner that has a proven track record in the marketplace,” says Mike Martin, Logicalis´ vice president of Cloud Solutions. “At Logicalis, we recognize that cloud computing needs to provide an open framework that extends to our clients´ IT solution needs, and with the VMware vCloud standards combined with our strong ITIL managed services, we are able to provide a scalable managed cloud solution.”

Customers of Logicalis have the ability to move workloads from their VMware vSphere-based virtualized or private cloud environment to the VMware vCloud Powered service and back again.

Logicalis sought VMware vCloud® Powered validation to confirm the level of service being offered through the Logicalis Enterprise Cloud. As a validated provider, Logicalis can now provide users with enhanced responsiveness and agility as well as reduced IT costs through increased consolidation, task automation and simplified management.
