Get the most out of your VMware cloud data centre

If you’ve recently signed up for a cloud data centre trial with us, and haven’t yet had your walk through with me (just get in touch to arrange that) here’s a series of posts from our archive that should help you to find your way around vCloud Director.

If you find yourself stuck, don’t forget we’re only a phone call (0808 222 2221 – press 3 for support, and you’ll be through to our support team) or email away. And if there’s anything you’d like to see included in a future cloud management post from me, I’d welcome your suggestions.

The best way to learn about cloud, is to try cloud — get hands on with a test drive (and a tutorial from Dean!)

What’s one of the best ways of understanding something? Even if I’ve read (or been told) a lot about a particular something, quite often for me it’s when I try it — get my hands dirty, make mistakes, get involved in a bit of trial and error — that everything finally clicks.

If you’re at all curious about how cloud computing might work in practice for your business, you’re welcome to try it with us. We’ll give you a cloud data centre for you to experiment with, so you can see exactly what’s involved in creating a virtual server with a point and a click.

All the while, you’ll have the practical help and advice of Dean (our VMware cloud pro!) just a phone call or email away (plus, if you’d like it, a personal cloud orientation tutorial — just to show you the ropes and get you started).

To get started, head over to our cloud test drive page!
