Deliver complete software-defined services as virtual datacenters
The virtual datacenter is a new logical container which provides all infrastructure services necessary to make workloads operational in minutes. Applications can be placed into the most optimal vCenter Server cluster, alleviating IT overhead around balancing server capacity. With vCloud Director, IT can define multiple consumption resource allocation and consumption models for the same infrastructure, ranging from capacity-as-you-go to reserved pools.
Provision complete operationally-ready infrastructure in minutes
Accelerate and simplify access to infrastructure by making vApp templates of multi-tier applications available in web-based catalogs for rapid deployment. Resources can by dynamically provisioned from software-defined resource pools and applications can be flexibly ported between datacenters. Leveraging Sphere linked clones and snapshots dramatically expedites access to infrastructure.
Have IT policies automatically enforced
vCloud Director embeds software-defined security and resource consumption controls so that IT policies are automatically enforced. Network edge security is integrated into virtual datacenters. Consumption is authorized on a flexible role-based access model. Integration with Vmware vCenter Chargeback Manager lets you provide showback visibility and chargeback billing.
