The Software-Defined Data Center
Delivery Options: Private Cloud or Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
VMware software-defined architecture can be deployed in your data center as a private cloud, or off-site using secure infrastructure as a service (IaaS) operated by VMware or one of our certified partners. Most companies choose a hybrid combination of on-premises and IaaS platforms.
All three options are built on the same VMware Software-Defined Data Center technology, so you can easily migrate workloads among clouds, and control and govern your hybrid environment from a single management interface.
Software-Defined Private Cloud: On-Premises in Your Data Center
VMware provides flexible paths for evolving to a software-defined private cloud that you deploy on your own physical infrastructure. Customers typically begin with VMware vSphere® with Operations Management™, and at their own pace, add software-defined networking and storage, and various elements of our comprehensive management layer. Alternatively, you can move up to a full-infrastructure solution— VMware vCloud Suite®—directly from vSphere with Operations Management.
VMware vCloud® Air™ Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
Your Fastest Route to a Seamless Hybrid Cloud
Built on VMware Software-Defined Data Center technology, vCloud Air is infrastructure as a service (IaaS) operated by VMware. It lets you quickly, seamlessly and securely extend your data center into the cloud using the tools and processes you already have. You can run your hybrid environment with a common, unified model for management, orchestration, networking and security.
Cloud Services from VMware Partners
