Sovereign Systems selected as VMware Lighthouse Partner for vCloud Hybrid Service

Sovereign Systems today announced it will partner with VMware to deliver its new VMware vCloud Hybrid Service (vCHS) across the commercial and enterprise markets it serves.

Sovereign Systems is one of just 25 partners nationwide named to the Lighthouse Program.

As part of its roll out of the new service, VMware selected Sovereign Systems as a participant in its Partner Lighthouse initiative.

Sovereign customers now have early access to vCloud Hybrid Services before the solution is generally available in the third quarter of this year.

VMware vCloud Hybrid Service is a new infrastructure as a service (IaaS) platform built on the foundation of VMware vSphere.

The solution integrates on- and off-premise environments with common management, while allowing IT to run new and existing applications seamlessly.


“VMware has raised the bar of hybrid cloud computing with the introduction of this new offering. vCHS allows our customers to extend their data centers to off-premise cloud with a level of flexibility, security and reliability unmatched in the marketplace.

The early response from customers about how Sovereign can help them make this transformation has been very positive."

"This announcement comes as customers in all industries struggle to cut through the hype and develop a comprehensive cloud strategy.

Customers are asking for solutions that extend virtual server and private cloud resources beyond on-premise data centers and to offer this with the backing of a proven company like VMware is very intriguing."
