VMware vCloud™ Director gives customers the ability to deliver infrastructure on demand so that end users can consume virtual resources with maximum agility. Extensions, APIs and open cross-cloud standards enable vCloud Director customers to integrate with existing management systems and provide the flexibility to migrate workloads among different clouds. Datacenters can be consolidated and workloads can be deployed on shared infrastructure with built-in security and role-based access control.
Software-Defined Services as Virtual Data Centers

Provision complete, operationally ready infrastructure without worrying about the physical configuration of hardware.

Enable infrastructure for consumption in minutes.

Allow scripted access to consume cloud resources, such as vApp upload/download, catalog management and other operations, using an open, REST-based API.

Enable a policy-driven approach to provisioning that embeds software-defined resource consumption controls so you can automatically enforce pre-configured IT policies.

Key Benefits

Deliver complete software-defined datacenter services as virtual datacenters
Enable infrastructure to be ready for easy consumption in minutes
Ensure workload security and automated resource control

VMware vCloud Director Diagram
VMware vCloud Director enables a pragmatic approach to automated provisioning by transforming today's datacenter running vSphere into an infrastructure-as-a-service environment you can trust.

What Is VMware vCloud Director?

VMware vCloud Director orchestrates the provisioning of softwaredefined datacenter services as complete virtual datacenters that are ready for consumption in a matter of minutes. Virtual datacenters provide virtualized compute, networking, storage, and security so that administrators can provision the complete set of services necessary to make workloads operational in minutes. Software-defined datacenter service and the virtual datacenters fundamentally simplify infrastructure provisioning, and enable IT to move at the speed of business.

How Does VMware vCloud Director Work?

Deliver Complete Software-Defined Services as Virtual Datacenters
VMware vCloud Director applies the principles of pooling, abstraction and automation to all datacenter services like storage, networking, and security. By dramatically simplifying the provisioning of these services, VMware enables IT to provision complete and operationally ready infrastructure without worrying about the physical configuration of hardware.

Infrastructure ready for consumption in minutes
vCloud Director accelerates and simplifies access to infrastructure. Open Virtualization Format-based vApp templates of multi-tier applications are made available in Web-based catalogs for rapid deployment. This template-based approach also enables applications to be flexibly ported between datacenters.

vCloud Director also leverages VMware vSphere technology like linked clones and snapshots to dramatically expedite access to infrastructure. This faster infrastructure delivery is also available to third-party technology alliance partners through an expanded API and SDK.

Infrastructure-as-a-service you can trust
vCloud Director leverages a policy-driven approach to provisioning that embeds software-defined security and resource consumption controls so that pre-configured IT policies are automatically enforced. VMware vCenter™ Single-Sign-On enables SAML tokens generated by any identity provider to be used to login to vCloud Director.

Beyond security, vCloud Director enables authorized consumption using a flexible role-based access control model that enables different users to have different levels of functional access within vCloud Director. Quotas, leases, and limits can also be set to limit consumption that exceeds prescribed boundaries. Integration with VMware vCenter Chargeback™ enables consumption within vCloud Director to be fully accounted for both showback visibility and chargeback billing.
How Is VMware vCloud Director Used?

The virtual datacenter is a new logical container that provides all infrastructure services, including virtualized networking, storage, and security. With virtual datacenters, administrators can provision all infrastructure services necessary to make workloads operational in minutes.

Enterprises also face ever increasing pressure to react quickly that is often constrained by the rate at which IT infrastructure can be provisioned. By accelerating infrastructure delivery, enterprises can ensure that IT moves at the speed of business while maintaining security and control.

VMware vCloud Director applies the principles of pooling, abstraction and automation to all datacenter services like storage, networking, and security. By dramatically simplifying the provisioning of these services, VMware enables IT to provision complete and operationally ready infrastructure without worrying about the physical configuration of hardware.

The virtual datacenter is a new logical container that provides all infrastructure services necessary to make workloads operational in minutes. Applications provisioned into these elastic containers are automatically placed in the most optimal vCenter Server cluster, alleviating IT overhead around balancing server capacity.

Multiple resource allocation models define how virtual datacenter resources are consumed by different teams and organizations. Resources can be reserved for guaranteed availability or consumed "as you go" for maximum efficiency.

vCloud Director accelerates and simplifies access to infrastructure. Open Virtualization Format-based vApp templates of multi-tier applications are made available in web-based catalogs for rapid deployment. vApp templates capture requirements for compute, storage, networking, and other custom guest data so that the resources can be dynamically provisioned from aggregate software-defined resource pools to meet those requirements. This template-based approach also enables applications to be flexibly ported between datacenters.

vCloud Director also leverages vSphere technology like linked clones and snapshots to dramatically expedite access to infrastructure. Linked clone technology links instances of running VMs back to their original template to avoid wait times for additional storage. Snapshots enable end-users to unwind changes made to a virtual machine without having to re-provision. This faster infrastructure delivery is also available to 3rd party technology alliance partners through an expanded API and SDK.

vCloud Director leverages a policy-driven approach to provisioning that embeds software-defined security and resource consumption controls so that pre-configured IT policies are automatically enforced. vCloud Director integrates network edge security into virtual datacenters so that organization administrators can directly configure and deploy gateway security services. vCenter Single-Sign-On enables SAML tokens generated by any identity provider to be used to login to vCloud Director.

Beyond security, vCloud Director enables authorized consumption using a flexible role-based access control model that enables different users to have different levels of functional access within vCloud Director. Quotas, leases, and limits can also be set to limit consumption that exceeds prescribed boundaries. Integration with VMware vCenter Chargeback Manager enables consumption within vCloud Director to be fully accounted for both showback visibility and chargeback billing.
