London-based VMware enterprise partner and cloud provider, Commensus, has gained accreditation from VMware and has had its C-VIP Secure Cloud Platform reach vCloud Powered status.

Hybrid cloud, Commensus’ CTO Alex Parker points out, is set to grow throughout 2012. The company hopes that the VMware partnership will encourage customers to take up its hybrid technology.

According to VMware, its vCloud Powered program will help partners win new business by differentiating from the competition. VMware’s brand recognition tied into services certainly will not do damage to small to medium sized cloud providers.

Commensus customers, the company claims, can easily move their workloads from private cloud environments into VMware vCloud Powered service and back. Being flexible with moving workloads, or what Commensus calls “application portability,” really does work as a differentiator. VMware’s EMEA director, Gavin Jackson, said the program will “help them bring their enterprise-class cloud services to market in this competitive landscape.”

Today’s news has sparked fresh interest in Commensus’ growing channel. With VMware’s vCloud Powered status, Commensus partners can also benefit from the increased security and resiliency offered by the Hybrid Cloud. Leveraging the power of the Internet, the channel can now provide a one stop shop of infrastructure services including public, private and hybrid clouds.

Commensus’ Channel Marketing Manager, Steve Pailthorpe, said to ChannelBiz: “vCloud Powered status ensures our partners are able to remain agile and flexible within an every changing market.

“Partners can essentially start their own public cloud and can utilise vCloud Director to develop Hybrid management between their customers on-premise servers and cloud infrastructure”.
