VMware Certified Instructor and Senior Technical Trainer Brian Watrous provides an overview of the essential components behind the Software-Defined Data Center.
These bootcamps include:
■ Introduction To The Software-Defined Data Center
■ Essentials Of The Software-Defined Data Center
■ Automating the Software-Defined Data Center
■ Compute Virtualization
■ Storage Virtualization
■ Network and Security Virtualization – part1
■ Network and Security Virtualization – part2
At the end of this video bootcamp, you will have a good understanding of the VMware Software-Defined Data Center.
An overview of the solution and the logical architecture as well as results of the tested physical implementation are provided. Consult with your VMware representative as to how to modify the architecture to suit your business needs.
This document will assist enterprise architects, solution architects, sales engineers, field consultants, advanced services specialists, and customers who are responsible for infrastructure services. This guide provides an example of a successful deployment of an SDDC.
Expectations for IT to deliver applications and services at speed and scale are greater than ever. The VMware SDDC enables companies to evolve beyond outdated, hardware-centric architectures and to create an automated, easily managed platform that embraces all applications, for fast deployment across data centers and clouds. With an SDDC, users see a predefined list of services available to them and can have these services created instantly upon request, while still enabling IT to control and secure these services. This reference architecture delivers a working configuration that provides users with the on-demand access they need while ensuring that IT maintains the control and security it requires.
The VMware Software-Defined Data Center Foundation Reference Architecture
This reference architecture describes the implementation of a software-defined data center (SDDC) that leverages the latest VMware components and capabilities. The reference architecture is built on the Foundation VMware Validated Design. The Foundation VMware Validated Design is the core of all higher-level VMware Validated Designs.
Foundation describes a scalable, resilient, best-practice configuration on which all additional functionality is layered. The Foundation configuration uses industry-standard servers, IP-based and VMware Virtual SAN™ storage, and software-defined networking to support a scalable and redundant architecture.
The VMware Validated Design process gathers data from customer support, VMware IT, and VMware and partner professional services to create a standardized configuration that meets the majority of customer requirements. Internally, VMware engineering teams test new product capabilities, installations, upgrades,
and more, against the standardized configuration. VMware and partner professional services teams build delivery kits based on this design, knowing that they are deploying with the best possible configuration.
Customers planning “do it yourself” deployments also benefit from following this architecture, confident that future product upgrades, patches, and so on, have already been tested against a configuration identical to theirs.
This document will assist those who are responsible for infrastructure services, including enterprise architects, solution architects, sales engineers, field consultants, advanced services specialists, and customers. This guide provides an example of a successful deployment of an SDDC.
This video introduces the SDDC and the transformational effect it has on your data center, on IT operations, and on business agility..
This video is the sixth in a new series of free Webinars that we are releasing in which our Technical Support staff members present on various topics across a wide range of VMware’s product portfolio.
The title for this presentation is “Introduction to VMware vRealize Orchestrator 6”.
This presentation was originally broadcast live on Thursday 30th April 2015.
