VMware vCloud Director enables cloud providers to provision SDDC services as complete virtual data centers that are ready for consumption in a matter of minutes. SDDC services and virtual data centers reduce complexity and implementation risk. vCloud Director is available through the VMware Cloud Provider Program.
How Does vCloud Director Support Cloud Providers?
Easy Cloud Consumption
HTML 5 UI provides for simplified workflows and the fastest, easiest path to service monetization and revenue realization.
Seamless Data Center Extension
vCloud Director Extender enables simple, secure VM migration and data center extension. It allows for tenant-driven workflows, seamless connectivity, and cold or warm migration options.
Supports Open APIs
Allows scripted access to consume cloud resources, such as vApp upload/download, catalog management and other operations. Using REST-based APIs and SDKs, VMware Cloud Providers can extend the capabilities of vCloud Director and create differentiation.
Provides Application Catalog Services
Catalogs can be used to publish virtual appliances and media files across a single tenant or multiple tenants.
Certified Reference Design for VMware Cloud Providers
The VMware Cloud Provider Platform helps providers achieve operational efficiency by rapidly enabling and monetizing highly scalable cloud environments using vCloud Director and the SDDC stack.
Delivers Multi-Tenancy Platform
You can reduce operational costs by using a single platform to host secure virtual data centers that could be consumed by multiple tenants using Role-Based Access Control.
Enforces Security and Enables Efficient Resource Consumption
vCloud Director takes a policy-driven approach to provisioning that embeds software-defined resource consumption controls, so you can automatically enforce preconfigured IT policies.
