VMware vCloud Director enables service providers to build differentiated cloud services that are inherently hybrid-aware and ideal for enterprise-class organizations. It is available through the vCloud Air Network Program.
Delivers Virtual Data Centers in Minutes
vCloud Director orchestrates the provisioning of software-defined data center (SDDC) services as complete virtual data centers that are ready for consumption in minutes.
Automates Data Center Services
Applies pooling, abstraction and automation to data center services such as storage, networking, and security. As a result, you can provision complete and operationally ready infrastructure without worrying about the physical configuration of hardware.
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.
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, service providers can extend the capabilities of vCloud Director and create differentiation.
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.
Provides Application Catalog Services
Catalogs can be used to publish virtual appliances and media files across a single tenant or multiple tenants.
