MADISON, WI -- (Marketwire) -- 11/20/12 -- TDS Hosted and Managed Services (TDS HMS), a leading provider of cloud-based managed services, today announced that its ReliaCloud™ service has achieved VMware vCloud® Powered status. This achievement illustrates, to customers, that TDS HMS' cloud services are underpinned by VMware's leading virtualization and cloud infrastructure and management technology, namely VMware vSphere® and VMware vCloud Director®. A member of the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP), TDS HMS provides VMware vCloud Powered service as a set of cloud computing services across a common platform, supporting the largest set of existing applications and offering distinctive application mobility uniquely available from VMware.

"The VMware vCloud Powered program was developed to enable our service provider partners to differentiate themselves and help them bring their enterprise-class cloud services to market in highly competitive landscapes," said Michael McDonough, VSPP Leader of the Americas, VMware. "We look forward to supporting TDS HMS further as it delivers the agility and performance customers are looking for in the cloud computing landscape."

ReliaCloud customers have the ability to move workloads from their VMware vSphere-based virtualized or private cloud environment to the VMware vCloud Powered service and back again. This application portability is a key differentiator, allowing customers to achieve the flexibility and security they need while enabling increased IT agility.
