Creation of virtual and private data centres
Management and distribution of resources are entirely under your control as there is total transparency between the resources used and those that remain available.
Support and management of multi-user sessions
Sharing infrastructure and resources is easy as it is possible to petition users into groups and subgroups (departments, subsidiaries, etc.). As a result, each group is assigned an exclusive pool of virtual resources, accessible through an independent authentication system, and has a set of defined service rules at its disposal.
Extensive catalogue of infrastructure services
Infrastructure services, such as virtual machines or operating system images, can be accessed and deployed quickly using a central catalogue. Management, maintenance and troubleshooting are greatly facilitated.
The vCloud API allows transfers between clouds in OVF format (which retains application properties, network configurations and applied rules). This REST-based API is open makes all the resources of a cloud accessible via a script.
Integrating a hyper-converged infrastructure layer into the VMware SDDC (Software-Defined Data Centre) software stack, VxRail offers performance, reliability and flexibility to any type of workload or application (SQL, Oracle, containers, NoSQL, etc.) and guarantees complete management of the process life-cycle.

Based on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, this high-performance hyperconverged SDS (Software Defined Storage) storage solution delivers shared, secure and scalable storage optimized for virtualization. It thus reduces the total cost of ownership, or TCO, compared to a traditional storage solution. Learn more
Using the vSphere VMware hypervisor to manage cloud infrastructures guarantees scalability and flexibility at all times, as well as accurate cost control based upon your needs.
This technology exposes firewall, load balancer, NAT, DHCP protocol and VPN to enable virtualisation on hypervisors, cloud management systems and the network hardware that goes with them, without depending upon their suppliers. It is also possible to interface with external networking services and the security ecosystem.. Learn more
- Full Flash storage
Storage is via SSD for increased performance and availability. Latency times are reduced, data is produced in record time, and administration is quickly taken care of: significant advantages for Big Data.
Container Service Extension (CSE)
Container Service Extension is an extension that helps to create, deploy, and use Kubernetes clusters from VMware Cloud Director.
Once installed, this extension offers a "Kubernetes As A Service", and provides custom models of virtual machines, allowing users to deploy fully functional Kubernetes clusters, as stand-alone vApps.
By using CSE, cloud administrators will be relieved of certain missions, only having to manage the installation and configuration part of the extension, while cluster administrators will manage the creation part of clusters, and developers will have to create, configure and manage deployment of applications.
