I just got a message from John Coley announcing the vCloud Director “next generation” beta program over at StratoGen. He’s looking for beta testers that will push his platform to the limits. Specifically, he’s looking for power users familiar with building complex environments using VPNs, inter-vApp networking and advanced storage features.

The announcement:

StratoGen are pleased to announce the start of our […] beta program which will provide valuable feedback on our implementation of the next version of VMware vCloud Director.

Beta testing underpins all of our product launches and is crucial in our ability to provide services that lead the hosted VMware market whilst remaining highly resilient. In this program we are particularly interested in working with experienced “power users” who are familiar with VPNs, complex internetworking and able to utilize […] SAN storage.

By participating in this program you agree to be contacted to provide feedback on usability and platform performance. In return you will be one of the first to use this exciting new technology, and allocated temporary resources on our USA based enterprise platform.

StratoGen is a leading VMware hosting provider with award winning cloud platforms in both the USA and UK.

If you would like to take part in the program please visit http://www.stratogen.com/products/vmware-hosting.html and follow the link for the Beta program to register your interest.
