Get Ready For Your Own Private Cloud
To amplify the benefits of virtualization and increase agility, enterprises are starting to implement private clouds. A private cloud based on VMware’s Private Cloud solution delivers three unique capabilities to the enterprise
- 1) An efficient and secure approach to using shared infrastructure for servicing highly frequent requests
- 2) A standardized, portable, extensible approach to enable workloads to be deployed without manual configuration and across multiple clouds
- 3) Agile access to shared infrastructure so workloads can be provisioned on demand
Rely on the Most Efficient, Agile, and Extensible Private Cloud Infrastructure
As the proven leader in virtualization, VMware is charting the course to deliver unprecedented efficiency, agility, and extensibility with the private cloud. Working in concert with industry leaders, VMware is helping enterprises gain the benefits of cloud computing leveraging existing investments without compromising control.
The VMware Private Cloud Solution introduces new abstractions, similar to those available with vSphere, to take virtualization to the datacenter level. IT services are delivered as fully encapsulated and portable multi-virtual-machine units called vApps. These vApps can be stored in catalog libraries and migrated to any VMware compatible cloud. End-user consumption is controlled and governed through both role-based access policies tied to organization constructs as well as unique virtual networking technologies that enable similar virtual machine environments to be deployed concurrently
" [VMware’s] deep expertise in virtualization and cloud technologies helped us significantly accelerate the design and build of our internal private cloud solution. With IT efficiency seen as the most compelling driver of cloud adoption, it’s no surprise that VMware is the vendor most closely associated with this emerging computing environment."— Alan Russell, Vice President, Global Infrastructure Systems, Experian
Private Clouds Deliver Infrastructure as a Service with Security
The VMware Private Cloud Solution pools infrastructure resources among multiple clusters into policy-based virtual datacenters. A virtual datacenter is a predefined container of resources that spans a set of virtualized physical resources that can be can be constructed to provide specific service-levels or meet particular business needs. These elastic and tiered virtual datacenters enable resources to be provisioned to IT services without repeated configuration. By logically pooling infrastructure capacity into virtual datacenters, IT organizations can manage resources more efficiently with complete abstraction between the delivery of infrastructure and the underlying hardware that supports it.
VMware solutions also enable your virtual infrastructure to be secured and continuously monitored for compliance drift. VMware’s security technology enables trust-zone policies to be applied on the Private Cloud to protect and control traffic to IT-governed groups of virtual machines. VMware’s configuration management products also enable continuous monitoring of the virtual environment to detect potential incidents and failures that can take the environment out of compliance.
Private Cloud Hosting Enabling Standardization and Portability
Standardization is central to achieving much greater operational efficiency. Private clouds not only facilitate standardization but dramatically increase the returns on standardization. VMware Private Cloud Solution leverage open standards such as the Open Virtualization Format (OVF) to enable packaging and migration of workloads across clouds. By encapsulating multi virtual-machine services and the associated networking policies into vApps, these portable units can be stored in catalogs and flexibly deployed into any virtual datacenter available to the enterprise. This enables end users of one cloud to easily share services with end users of another and enables IT to easily migrate services between clouds. Custom extensions and the open Private Cloud API allow existing systems in the datacenter to be integrated with the private cloud so you can customize your cloud to your unique business requirements.
Consuming Infrastructure as a Service with Agility
Pooling of infrastructure and portability of services combine to enable uniquely agile access to IT services. VMware’s Private Cloud solution enables end users to deploy services and consume resources on demand through both a Web portal and a programmatic interface. End users store their most frequently used vApp configurations in catalogs that enable sharing and collaboration among users in an organization. At deployment time, the VMware Private Cloud solution can automatically detect provisioning of a vApp template that has already been deployed and rapidly provision a clone using unique VMware linked clone technology. These capabilities get end users the fastest access to infrastructure.
