vCloud Express 1.12 Release Notes

Thu, 07 Jun 2012 20:45:00 GMT | Add Comment

Terremark is pleased to announce the upcoming availability of release 1.12 of vCloud Express on June 23, 2012.

VM Upload Beta

Many vCloud Express customers also run VMware within their corporate data centers. Sometimes these customers wish to move a running virtual machine to vCloud Express. 

VM Upload enables customers to upload that complete virtual machine to vCloud Express. Once they build a virtual machine precisely as desired, that virtual machine may be uploaded to vCloud Express and imported into their environment. Beginning on June 23, 2012 we will begin enabling the VM Upload feature as a beta to interested customers. If you are interested in participating in the beta, please email us at vcloudservicemanagers@terremark.com.
