The VMware SDDC on IBM Cloud solution provides a completely configured VMware Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) built to a standardized format and architecture. This provides a private cloud which can be quickly scaled up (or down) and allows existing VMware virtualized data center clients to extend or move their workloads into the IBM Cloud. This enables companies to address such issues as rapid capacity expansion (and contraction when not needed), migration of workloads to the cloud, establishing cloud based backup and disaster scenarios, and the ability to set up development, test, training or lab capacity. All by exploiting the operational benefits and agility of IBM Cloud with the ability to expand or contract the environment to meet the business needs. In fact, additional servers can be added simply and quickly to meet increased capacity of over 10,000 sized virtual guest servers per region.
This SDDC configuration includes a software defined networking solution based on VMware NSX providing virtually unlimited networking flexibility in defining new VLANs, assigning IP addresses, and establishing network services such as load balancing, firewalls and routers.
Shared storage is included based on VMware Virtual Storage Area Networking (VSAN) software defined storage. This provides highly available, high performance, single tenant storage which grows automatically as additional capacity nodes are added.
The VMware SDDC on IBM Cloud – Advanced reference architecture is the first partner architecture to be certified under the VMware Validated Design program.
