VMware Cloud Director by IKOULA
Create and operate your own VMware datacenter onlineVirtualisation is more than ever at the centre of companies concerns these days. As the need for computing power and storage is continually increasing, the wisest choice seems to be to turn to a powerful software solution for orchestrating your virtual servers.
with the scalable, centralised Cloud Director interface
VMware appears to be one of the most powerful of the orchestrators that allow you to launch yourself in virtualisation. This technology, combined with the Cloud Director tool, enables users to deploy virtual servers themselves to suit their storage, network and computing needs, and thus orchestrate their own secure and flexible virtual datacenter.

How does the VMware Cloud Director work?
VMware technology is designed for companies looking for a business Cloud solution that charges according to the resources used. It offers all the benefits of a private cloud combined with scalability and flexibility at all times.
From the Cloud Director orchestrator, each company can securely deploy one or more private virtual data centres, bringing together all the storage, computing and network resources they need into a single location. Rather than using multiple physical infrastructures and separating them into silos based on usage type and users, companies can consolidate their use of hardware resources and improve performance. Consumption models can also be defined within Cloud Director, whether they are reserved resources or on-demand capacities.
Globally, companies maintain control of their virtual datacenter(s), created with VMware technology, through a series of permissions, quotas and roll-based contracts using Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory services.
What features and functionalitydoes VMware Cloud Director by IKOULA have?
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.
vSAN Ready Nodes
Based on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, this high-performance, hyper-converged Software-Defined Storage (SDS) solution delivers shared, secure, and scalable storage optimised for virtualisation. This reduces the total cost of ownership (TCO) compared to a traditional storage solution.
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.
- 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.
The benefits of VMware Cloud Director by IKOULA
- Increased flexibility and responsiveness for the company, as Cloud Director users can deploy pre-configured or customised services to meet their needs with just a few clicks.
- Optimised and reduced computing costs, with the consolidation of managed resources through a single interface and the automation of specific IT tasks.
- Interoperability and portability of applications, allowing other compatible secure public Clouds to be included and easily managed within the Cloud Director orchestrator.
