VMDC incorporates multiple partner products in it's architectural designs including compute, network, and storage products. VMDC also interoperates with partner developed, systems management software and has qualified integrations with both Orchestration and Assurance vendors.
VMDC Cloud Orchestration
VMDC orchestration is an integrated solution that enables datacenter infrastructure evolution to a more cost-effective and efficient cloud computing model. Cloud Orchestration technology provides a complete end-to-end solution that unites network, compute and virtualization resources, while providing improved management, robust security, and improved business metrics with on-demand resource provisioning.
VMDC Cloud Service Assurance
VMDC Service Assurance enables cloud providers to deliver on business service level agreements, maintain operational awareness of the service health of private or public cloud tenants, and identify and respond to critical service-impacting performance and availability events.
