This reference architecture describes an implementation of a software-defined data center (SDDC) using VMware vCloud® Suite Enterprise 5.8, VMware NSXTM for vSphere® 6.1, VMware IT Business Management SuiteTM Standard Edition 1.1, and VMware vCenterTM Log InsightTM 2.0 to create an SDDC. This SDDC implementation is based on real-world scenarios, user workloads, and infrastructure system configurations. The configuration uses industry-standard servers, IP-based storage, and 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) networking to support a scalable and redundant architecture.An overview of the solution and the logical architecture as well as results of the tested physical implementation are provided. Consult with your VMware representative as to how to modify the architecture to suit your business needs.
