VMware Cloud Foundation on VxBlock makes operating the data center fundamentally simpler by bringing the ease and automation of the public cloud in-house. This is achieved by deploying a standardized and validated network-flexible architecture with integrated full-stack life cycle automation for the entire cloud infrastructure stack, including hardware. This level of deep integration with Cloud Foundation is what gives customers a truly unique turnkey hybrid cloud experience.
