IT operations teams are being driven to be more efficient and more responsive to the needs of their business users. It no longer is acceptable for IT provisioning requests to take days or weeks to fulfill. Demand is always increasing, as is the expectation of immediate on-demand delivery for repeatable commodity-type requests. An automation cloud based on VMware® IT technology enables an IT operations team to automate the provisioning of common repeatable requests and to respond to business needs with more agility and predictability.This reference architecture describes the implementation of a software-defined data center (SDDC) that leverages the latest VMware components to create an SDDC with automated provisioning. The reference architecture is built on the VMware Validated Design for a single-site IT automation cloud.
