We are pleased to announce we’ve published an update to the All-Flash Virtual SAN for VDI reference architecture to highlight optimization of this solution with Brocade Virtual Traffic Manager (vTM), an application delivery controller designed for any virtual or cloud environment.
Last week, we hinted at the release of a new reference architecture detailing an all-flash virtual SAN for VDI environments. Today we’re pleased to announce the reference architecture has been published and is ready for you to download here:
VMware Virtual SAN™ is a software-defined storage platform that aggregates locally attached disks of hosts to create distributed shared storage solution, and the new Virtual SAN 6.0 gives you the power to design and deploy solutions with 100 percent flash-based storage. To demonstrate the technology and integration points, VMware and our ecosystem partners—Avago, Brocade, Dell, and SanDisk—recently created a reference architecture for implementing Virtual SAN in a VDI environment with all SSDs instead of traditional hybrid configuration.
Enabling the ecosystem is a critical part of our mission at VMware Developer Center, and World Wide Technology (WWT) is a great example of the ways in which VMware partners are using our products to create integrated SDDC solutions for both traditional and cloud-native applications.
One of the challenges every customer faces when deploying VMware vCloud Automation Center (vCAC) is trying to figure out what services you want to offer, and to whom you want them offered. VMware and other third-party vendors have been creating different plug-ins and workflows to help customers along their journey to ITaaS, and these workflows can be found on the VMware Solution Exchange website. One of the latest plug-ins available is the Horizon 6.0 plug-in for vCenter Orchestrator (vCO) that allows administrators to run automated workflows with the VMware vSphere Web Client and VMware vCAC 6.0.1/6.1.
As first noted on the vSphere blog, VMware has published a new reference architecture, On-Demand Infrastructure with Secure Networks, that showcases the integrations between VMware vCloud® Suite Enterprise, VMware NSX for vSphere®, and VMware vCenter Log Insight to create an on-demand infrastructure with a secure networking environment.
