How Does The gBlock Cloud Work?

The gBlock® Public Cloud services from Green House Data provide you with virtual servers including vCPU, vRAM, and vStorage that behave in the same manner as physical server infrastructure. You access your Virtual Data Center (VDC) via public internet or VPN and control it through an online portal. 

The public cloud comes in two different flavors: Self-Service and Managed, but you can also add à la carte managed services to your self-service cloud. Both offer premium-grade cloud infrastructure, online management with vCloud Director, complimentary monitoring tools, advanced firewalls, load balancing, and more.

If you are one of many organizations that is already virtualized with VMware, you are one step closer to getting more from your critical applications in a hosted multi-tenant, VMware-powered cloud environment. 


Compute Resources

Public Cloud Hosting from Green House DataEach virtual machine is assigned a vCPU that is delivered dynamically from the pool of available physical CPUs (1.9 Ghz Intel processors). A single customer VDC can support up to 64 vCPUs. It is possible to hot add or delete vCPUs without downtime.

vRAM is also delivered dynamically from our overall pool of public memory, with a maximum per VDC of 1 TB of vRAM. Memory is also dynamically scalable.

Cloud storage for virtual machines is tied to a datastore, which is hosted on our gBlock storage platform. gBlock is available in a variety of performance configurations. Your VDC can also be tied to file and/or object storage for specific applications. You can expand your storage as needed without downtime.

vCloud API

APIs in vCloud Director 5.5 are extensible platforms that allow users programmatic access to provisioning and management controls. Developers can write applications to manage virtualized resources in-house and then bridge to Green House Data cloud infrastructure. The API supports both upload and download, customization, and deployment of vApps. 

In addition, the API provides support for developer-built clients using the representational state transfer application development style (RESTful). The API clients and vCloud Director servers communicate over HTTP.

Using the vCloud API, user input influences creative cloud management solutions. Examples of how some of our customers use the vCloud API:


vCloud Connector

VMware's vCloud Connector makes hybrid cloud hosting a breeze.

Easily and securely connect enterprise vSphere clouds with the gBlock public cloud using vCloud Connector and manage the resulting hybrid cloud environment via one single interface.

The VMware vCloud Connector facilitates the migration of virtual machines across various data centers and/or clouds, allowing users to view, conduct operations, and move resources between vSphere and vCloud Director in both public and private cloud environments.
