Software – Defined Data Center Platform

Software - Defined Data Center Platform

The Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) platform supports any device, any app and any cloud. It brings together VMware’s compute, storage and network virtualization into a natively integrated stack, delivering enterprise-ready cloud infrastructure capabilities that are common to both private and public clouds

VMware Cloud Foundation is the unified SDDC platform that brings together VMware vSphere, vSAN, and NSX into a natively integrated stack to deliver enterprise-ready cloud infrastructure for the private and public cloud.

What Cloud Foundation Delivers

Next Generation Hyper-Convergence
Take hyper-converged infrastructure to the next level beyond compute and storage to include networking with VMware NSX for enhanced network security and even greater scalability
Radically Simple Operations
Use built-in automated lifecycle management of all day 0 and day 2 tasks with the VMware SDDC Manager
Enterprise Class Capabilities
Leverage VMware’s market leading SDDC solutions to deliver high scalability, improved performance and advanced storage and network management
Public Cloud Extension
Access VMware Cloud Foundation managed by public cloud providers for a unified and consistent operational experience across the private and public cloud

The core components of VMware Cloud Foundation are the market-leading VMware solutions you already know – vSphere, vSAN, and NSX. Additionally, VMware Cloud Foundation includes SDDC Manager, which automates the entire system lifecycle (from initial bring-up, to configuration and provisioning, to upgrades and patching), and simplifies day-to-day management and operations. VMware Cloud Foundation can be used on-premises for private cloud deployments or run as a service from the public cloud with a single consistent operational experience. VMware Cloud Foundation drastically simplifies the path to the hybrid cloud, while increasing admin productivity and reducing overall TCO.
