This reference architecture describes the implementation of a software-defined data center (SDDC) that leverages the latest VMware components and capabilities. The reference architecture is built on the Foundation VMware Validated Design.
The Foundation Vmware Validated Design is the core of all higher-level VMware Validated Designs. Foundation describes a scalable, resilient, best-practice configuration on which all additional functionality is layered. The Foundation configuration uses industry-standard servers, IP-based and VMware Virtual SANTM storage, and software-defined networking to support a scalable and redundant architecture.
