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.
Hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) is scale-out, software-defined infrastructure that converges core data services on flash-accelerated, industry-standard servers, delivering flexible and powerful building blocks under unified management. All key data center functions run in a tightly integrated software layer-delivering services that previously required purpose-built hardware.
HCI consists of three software components: compute virtualization, storage virtualization and management. The virtualization software abstracts and pools the underlying resources and dynamically allocates them to applications running in virtual machines or containers. Users enjoy a sleek new operational model where they manage the compute, storage and networking from a single tool. Advanced management features further reduce manual tasks or help automate entire operations.
Overview / Data Center Virtualization and Cloud Infrastructure
A Flexible Cloud Infrastructure for Your Virtual Data Center
Begin your cloud journey with server virtualization. Moving forward, at your own pace, evolve toward a fully virtualized software-defined data center architecture: virtualize networking, storage and security to create virtual data centers. Simplify the provisioning of IT resources and applications and make them available for consumption in minutes. Complete your private cloud by automating management for optimum performance, capacity utilization and compliance.
VMware software-defined storage is a simple, yet intelligent, storage data center architecture that aligns with business and application demands-eliminating static, purpose-built and inefficient hardware with dynamic, agile and automated solutions.
VMware Horizon radically transforms traditional VDI, giving you unprecedented simplicity, flexibility, speed and scale - all at lower costs. VMware Horizon promises to have you up and running 30x faster than traditional solutions and cut costs by as much as 50%.
Transform your wireline and wireless networks to Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) with an NFV Infrastructure platform that delivers the virtual compute, storage and networking resources coupled with a flexible Virtual Infrastructure Manager (VIM) and robust, intelligent operations management solution.
VMware Photon Platform is a container-optimized cloud platform which delivers on-demand tools and services for developers to build, test, and run modern applications while enabling IT to retain security, control and performance of data center infrastructure.
vSAN is the industry-leading software powering Hyper-Converged Infrastructure solutions. vSAN’s unique in-kernel architecture delivers flash-optimized performance and elastically scalable storage for any virtualized application, with TCO savings of up to 50%.
SRM is the industry-leading disaster recovery software that enables application availability and mobility across sites in private cloud environments with policy-based management, non-disruptive testing and automated orchestration.
Identity Manager is an Identity as a Service (IDaaS) offering, providing application provisioning, self-service catalog, conditional access controls and Single Sign-On (SSO) for SaaS, web, cloud and native mobile applications.
With VMware vSAN, customers can drive down the cost of getting started and take advantage of a number of pre-configured appliances optimized for Horizon including vSAN ReadyNode appliances, EVO SDDC infrastructure.
VMware ThinApp is an agentless application virtualization solution that isolates applications from their underlying operating systems to eliminate application conflict and streamline delivery and management.
vRealize Orchestrator lets you develop complex automation tasks, then access and launch workflows from the VMware vSphere client, various components of VMware vCloud Suite or other triggering mechanisms.
vCloud NFV is a fully integrated, modular, multi-tenant Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) platform. It provides compute, storage, networking, management and operations capabilities. vCloud NFV helps you accelerate time to revenue, automate service lifecycle and simplify operations management―all while reducing network infrastructure costs.
