The platform also lets users connect public, private and hybrid clouds.

Savvis, a subsidiary of CenturyLink, has released a new cloud service designed for businesses using VMware technologies.

The new Savvis Cloud Data Center, built on VMware vCloud Director and Cisco hardware, is part of the company's range of cloud services and lets users build software-defined data centre services that manage compute capabilities, storage and network connectivity.

The cloud infrastructure provider said the platform also lets users connect public, private and hybrid clouds.

Andrew Higginbotham, CTO at Savvis, said: "Businesses are looking to migrate applications hosted on-premise into the cloud using a variety of hybrid solutions.

"Designed for customers who rely on VMware technologies, Savvis Cloud Data Center streamlines extensions into the cloud with easy-to-use familiar interfaces and tools for scaling performance to their needs," he added.

Dave O'Callaghan, senior VP of global channels and alliances at VMware, said: "Cloud Data Center, built on vCloud Director 5.1, can provide businesses with a simple and flexible platform for hybrid cloud delivery that enables control and choice on where to run applications and effective asset protection through true data center extensibility."
