How Do gBlock Public Cloud Services Work?

gBlock® Public Cloud services from Green House Data provide you with VMware virtual servers including vCPU, vRAM, and vStorage that can give you the same application performance and user experience you have in existing on-premise server infrastructure. You access your Virtual Data Center (VDC) via the public internet or through VPN and control it through an online portal. 

The public cloud comes in two different flavors: Self-Service and Fully Managed, but you can also add à la carte managed services to your self-service cloud. Both are delivered with vCloud Director, complimentary monitoring tools, advanced firewalls, load balancing, and access to 24/7/365 customer support.

If you are one of many organizations that is already virtualized with VMware, you are one step closer to moving to a hosted multi-tenant cloud environment. 

Compute Resources

Public Cloud Hosting from Green House DataEach virtual machine in the public IaaS environment is assigned vCPUs and RAM that are delivered dynamically from the pool of available physical server resources. On-demand scalable infrastructure allows you to add resources on the fly without downtime, with practically zero resource limits.

Have special requirements? Let us know. We're flexible.

Cloud storage for virtual machines is tied to a datastore, which is hosted on our gBlock storage platform. gBlock is available in a variety of performance configurations. Your VDC can also be tied to file or object storage for specific applications. You can expand your storage as needed without downtime.

Control your cloud without a middleman. Visibility and monitoring tools alongside vCloud Director enable your administration of VDC resources including:

vCloud API

APIs in vCloud Director are extensible platforms which allow users programmatic access to provisioning and management controls. Developers can write applications to manage virtualized resources in-house and then bridge to Green House Data cloud infrastructure. The API supports both upload and download, customization, and deployment of vApps. 

In addition, the API provides support for developer-built clients using the representational state transfer application development style (RESTful). The API clients and vCloud Director servers communicate over HTTP.

Using the vCloud API, user input influences creative cloud management solutions. Examples of how Green House Data customers use the vCloud API:

vCloud Connector

VMware's vCloud Connector makes cloud IaaS easier to manage.

Easily and securely connect enterprise vSphere clouds with the gBlock public cloud using vCloud Connector and manage the resulting hybrid cloud environment via one single interface.

The VMware vCloud Connector facilitates the migration of virtual machines across various data centers and clouds, allowing users to view, conduct operations, and move resources between vSphere and vCloud Director in both public and private cloud environments.
