In a nutshell, the vCloud Suite helps IT automate application deployments in a way that is very similar to how public cloud providers like Amazon’s are provisioned today—on demand by end users. The vCloud Suite helps IT organizations transform themselves into service providers, and provides them with the framework to ensure your cloud infrastructure is optimized, cost effective, secure and flexible enough to meet any business demands.
