VMware Introduces VMware Validated Design 3.0


With the first day of VMworld 2016 almost in the books, several exciting product announcements have already been made. In the area of SDDC and hybrid cloud, earlier today we announced VMware Cloud Foundation, our new unified SDDC platform for the hybrid cloud. Cloud Foundation offers an accelerated path to SDDC by bringing together vSphere, VSAN and NSX into a natively integrated stack that is dead simple to manage and maintain. This is achieved thanks to the new VMware SDDC Manager that is included in Cloud Foundation, and brings new unique capabilities around the automation of the bring up, configuration and patching/upgrade of the entire stack. Very exciting! To learn more I recommend reading this blog by Raj Yavaktar, our VMware Fellow.

Cloud Foundation offers an integrated platform approach to the creation of a SDDC-based cloud. VMware provides you with the key piece parts and the built-in automation to manage the software stack so that you don’t have to invest time and money in doing it yourself. This approach has clear benefits and works for a lot of people, but there are also many customers who need or want to use a more typical “do-it-yourself” approach, selecting individual cloud infrastructure components and integrating them themselves. I can think of many valid reasons for choosing the “do-it-yourself” path: maybe you are not planning to move to HCI, or maybe you are not ready organizationally, or perhaps you simply want to use a more hands-on approach, etc. We recognize that when it comes to building the cloud there isn’t a one-size-fits-all option, and we want to ensure that all our customers will successfully complete this crucial transformation.

Designing and implementing an SDDC outside of an integrated and automated framework comes with its own challenges. Customers who choose to go down the “do-it-yourself” path are asking us for guidance on how to bring individual software components together using best practices that ensure a reliable, repeatable and scalable deployment. Customers want the peace of mind that software components interoperate well together, and that the decisions they make today won’t prevent them from growing their environment tomorrow. This is where VMware Validated Designs come in. Today we are delighted to announce that the new release VMware Validated Designs 3.0 will become available by the end of September!
