SAN FRANCISCO -- Today at VMworld 2014, AT&T and VMware, Inc. announced they will deliver highly secure, flexible bandwidth, low latency private cloud network connectivity for VMware vCloud Air customers using AT&T NetBondSM. Working together, VMware and AT&T will enable customers to quickly connect to VMware vCloud Air using AT&T’s Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) based private network solution.

AT&T and VMware recognize that enterprises continue to cite secure, high performance bandwidth as a key requirement to deploying hybrid cloud solutions linking existing data centers with off-premises cloud infrastructure. This new solution will use patented cloud integration technology from AT&T to pair virtual private networking with VMware’s industry-leading hybrid cloud platform. Customers of the solution will benefit from the enterprise-grade security of virtual private networking, overcoming the barriers that exist for enterprises needing a highly secure, reliable and scalable connection to VMware vCloud Air.

“VMware vCloud Air is unique in allowing customers to extend their existing applications seamlessly into the public cloud, using the same management and security capabilities they use in their on premises environments” said Bill Fathers, executive vice president and general manager, Hybrid Cloud Services Business Unit, VMware. “By working with AT&T, our customers will be able to connect their existing sites to VMware vCloud Air using AT&T worldwide network in hours or minutes rather than the weeks required for traditional network connections.”

AT&T NetBond’s patented technology will help businesses dynamically connect to VMware vCloud Air from any location on their private corporate networks. This will give VMware vCloud Air customers who use the service the reliability, speed, protection and performance of AT&T’s global network. It also offers the simplicity, flexibility and cost efficiency of the cloud.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
