VMware Cloud Foundation on VxRail is a Dell EMC and VMware jointly engineered integrated solution with features that simplify, streamline, and automate the operations of your entire SDDC from Day 0 through Day 2. The new platform delivers a set of software-defined services for compute (with vSphere and vCenter), storage (with vSAN), networking and security (with NSX), and cloud management (with vRealize Suite) in both private and public environments, making it the operational hub for your hybrid cloud.
VMware Cloud Foundation on VxRail provides the simplest path to the hybrid cloud through a fully integrated hybrid cloud platform that leverages native VxRail hardware and software capabilities and other VxRail unique integrations (such as vCenter plugins and Dell EMC networking) working together to deliver a new turnkey hybrid cloud user experience with full-stack integration. Full-stack integration means you get both the HCI infrastructure layer and cloud software stack in one completely automated lifecycle turnkey experience.
An important aspect of the offering is the introduction of a standardized architecture for how these SDDC components are deployed together with the introduction of Cloud Foundation, an integrated cloud software platform that is based on VVD. Having a standardized design incorporated as part of the platform provides you with a guarantee that these components have been certified with each other and are backed by Dell Technologies. You can then be assured that there is an automated and validated path forward to get from one known good state to the next across the end-to-end stack.
