Virtualization management

On the basic level, the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) delivers three basic virtualized services: compute, storage and network. A logical, software-defined layer separates the services we operate, from the underlying physical infrastructure. Hyper-Convergence infrastructure (HCI) refers to the merging of compute and storage capabilities which are managed through a single interface. With software-defined networking added to this, we get a virtualized data center.

Management and Automation of the SDDC is provided by a Cloud Management Platform (CMP), such as the VMware vRealize suite.

The hybrid cloud means joining together a public and a private cloud by using encrypted connection and technologies that allow data to be portable. Both clouds remain separate and independent. This means hybrid cloud is an environment where the private and public services are used together to create value. The Cloud Management Platform used for the SDDC, for example VMware vRealize, should seamlessly extend to manage and automate public cloud services, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.
