Virtualization has dramatically reduced IT costs while greatly improving efficiency. Now business units need rapid access to IT resources to support faster time-to-market for projects. IT needs to deliver this while ensuring that the datacenter is fully managed and secured. The VMware vCloud Suite is a complete, integrated cloud infrastructure solution that simplifies IT operations while delivering the best SLAs for all applications. It helps realize the agility, efficiency and intelligent operations management of cloud computing.
VMware vCloud Suite is an integrated solution for building and managing a complete cloud infrastructure that meets IT's most critical needs. vCloud Suite fulfils the promise of the software-defined datacenter by pooling industry-standard hardware and running each layer of the datacenter as software-defined services. It creates pools of servers, storage and networking with dynamically configurable security, availability and management services which can meet the needs of any and all applications.
Enterprise edition can build a complete and mature cloud for infrastructure as a service and rapid application provisioning. It enables control and accountability with configuration and chargeback management. It also delivers availability SLAs for business-critical applications with disaster recovery and offers quick and consistent on-demand provisioning of multi-tier applications.
Virtualized infrastructure with policy-based automation
Meet SLAs for the most demanding business-critical applications, at the lowest TCO with the industry-leading virtualization platform and enabler for cloud computing architectures. VMware vSphere delivers the server consolidation and efficient resource management benefits of virtualization through features which have created the industry standard, such as:
Public cloud extensibility
VMware makes hybrid cloud computing easy with vCloud Connector. Bring your existing applications, workloads and templates to a public cloud while retaining the freedom to move these applications back into your own datacenter when desired. With the advanced edition of vCloud Connector, the logical boundaries of your datacenter are extended and you can manage a single content catalog across your entire private and public cloud environment.
Software-defined networking, security and ecosystem integration with continuous firewall and network availability
Enhance operational efficiency, unlock agility and enable extensibility to rapidly respond to business needs. vCloud Networking and Security provides a broad range of services in a single solution, including virtual firewall, VPN, load balancing and VXLAN extended networks.
Automated disaster recovery planning, testing and execution
Ensure the simplest, most affordable and reliable disaster protection for all virtualized applications, leveraging cost-efficient vSphere Replication or storage-based replication to replace traditional, error-prone manual runbooks with simple, automated recovery plans and enable frequent, non-disruptive testing of recovery plans to ensure that they meet business requirements.
Self-service and policy-enabled cloud service provisioning
VMware vCloud Automation Center enables customers to rapidly deploy and provision cloud services in the vCloud Suite. Acting as a service governor, it provides a cross-cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), storefront to help enforce business and IT policies throughout the service lifecycle.
Accelerated and automated application provisioning for vSphere enabled cloud
Accelerate and automate the configuration and deployment of multi-tier applications across private and public cloud infrastructures.
Automated performance, capacity, configuration and compliance management for dynamic clouds
Ensure service levels, regulatory and best practice compliance and optimum resource utilization in heterogeneous and hybrid cloud environments through integrated performance, capacity and configuration management.
