Building the Foundation of a vCloud Air Lab

Before Partner Exchange 2014 I was spending a lot of time building out a vSphere “On Premises” lab in Washington.  The reason for this is the Technical Marketing Team wanted to be able to build and document use cases for the use of vCloud Air and everything you can do with it.  I plan on doing a more extensive set of posts explaining the overall setup, but I wanted to highlight some of the things we setup and show a high level logical diagram of the Hybrid Networking Connectivity.  I am working on the “double-Click” versions of the first diagram to dig into the each region.
