Hybrid Cloud - VMware Cloud Foundation

VMware Cloud Foundation is VMware's next-generation hybrid cloud platform. It advances VMware's industry-leading server virtualization, VMware vSphere®, by extending the hypervisor core with integrated software-defined storage, networking and security features that can be flexibly deployed on-premise or as a service in the public cloud (VMware Cloud™ on AWS or VMware Cloud Providers™). Now with integrated cloud management capabilities, the end result is a hybrid cloud platform that can span private and public environments, offering a consistent operating model based on familiar vSphere tools and processes - and the freedom to run applications anywhere without complex application rewriting.

What is VMware Cloud Foundation?

VMware Cloud Foundation™is the most advanced hybrid cloud platform providing a complete set of software-defined services, storage, networking, security and cloud management for running business applications - whether traditional or containerized - in private or public environments. 

Cloud Foundation greatly simplifies the path to hybrid cloud with an integrated solution, including built-in automated lifecycle management.


VMware Cloud Foundation dramatically accelerates the path to a true hybrid cloud, leading to increased productivity for administrators while lowering total cost of ownership (TCO). Customers who deploy VMware Cloud Foundation will benefit compared to traditional hardware-centric DCs:

  • Accelerate application deployment: achieve up to 15x faster application deployment and eliminate complex processes around system design, testing, commissioning, configuration and provisioning
  • Eliminate Risk: Use fast, repeatable and secure deployments based on standardized VMware Validated Design™
  • Lower TCO: Reduce your overall TCO by deploying a private cloud, saving up to 30-40%* with vRealize Suite
  • Future-ready infrastructure: run any application, traditional and container cloud-native

Unique features

  • Integrated Stack: Cloud Foundation is a solution designed to integrate the entire VMware SW-defined stack with guaranteed internal operability, freeing organizations from having to deal with a complex interoperability matrix.
  • Standardized Architecture:Built on the standard VMware Validated Design architecture, it ensures fast, repeatable deployments while eliminating the risk of misconfigurations.
  • Automated lifecycle management: Includes unique lifecycle management services that automate day 0 to day 2 operations, from commissioning to configuration, provisioning, and repairs/upgrades.
  • A simple path to hybrid cloud: fundamentally simplifies the path to hybrid cloud by providing a common platform for private and public clouds, enabling a consistent operational experience that leverages existing tools, processes and human resources.

Key Features

  • Cloud infrastructure: leverage the high performance, availability and scalability of VMware SDDC to run any mission-critical application such as database, web applications, VDI, etc.
  • IT automation: automate infrastructure and application delivery with self-service capabilities.
  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure: provides a complete solution for VDI deployments at scale.Simplify planning and design with standardized and tested solutions fully optimized for VDI workloads.
  • Hybrid cloud: build a true hybrid cloud with a common infrastructure and consistent operating model, connecting your on and off-prem datacenter that is compliant, stretched and distributed. 

Deployment options

  • Software deployment-on certified vSAN ReadyNodes and network switches.
  • Integrated system-pre-installed Cloud Foundation software, available from OEM vendors.
  • As a service from the public cloud-VMware Cloud on AWS or VMware cloud providers IBM Cloud, Google, Rackspace and CenturyLink.
