Now that VMware Cloud Director 10.4 is Generally Available, we are happy to present the latest version of the VMware Validated Solution (VVS) for Cloud Providers: Scale and Performance Guidelines for VMware Cloud Director 10.2 – 10.4. The document presents a pre-validated set of software components that simplify the deployment of a VMware Cloud Director® – based multi-tenant cloud in a predictable and efficient manner. While not a VMware Validated Solution by itself, it builds on the design guidance of the VMware Cloud Foundation™ documentation set and VMware Validated Solutions implemented on VMware Cloud Foundation.
Starting with VMware Cloud Foundation 4.3, the VMware Validated Design guidance for the SDDC components natively supported by the VMware Cloud Foundation automation is moved to the VMware Cloud Foundation documentation and the guidance for the solutions on top of VMware Cloud Foundation is now published under a new class of technical reference implementations called VMware Validated Solutions. VMware Validated Design documentation is discontinued.
Partners who deploy the core technologies outlined in this guide and who meet other programmatic requirements are also eligible to attain the VMware Cloud Verified designation.
VMware Cloud Providers are encouraged to consider building their clouds on VMware Cloud Foundation and use applicable VMware Validated Solutions to meet their platform requirements. The VMware Validated Solution for Cloud Providers: Scale and Performance Guidelines documents a validated VMware Cloud Provider Platform stack and associated scale and performance benchmarking captured during validation testing. This update brings the core software stack up to VMware Cloud Foundation 4.4 with the associated VMware Validated Solutions and VMware Cloud Provider Lifecycle Manager 1.3 and associated products: VMware Cloud Director, VMware vCloud Usage Meter and vRealize Tenant App.
