To deliver differentiated and profitable cloud services, you need a flexible, scalable, and efficient data center platform. The Cisco VMDC architecture has been validated with FlexPod® Datacenter solutions and provides a prescriptive blueprint for a modular, multi-tenant platform that you can customize to meet your IaaS performance and capacity requirements. When combined with FlexPod Datacenter, the VMDC design can take advantage of the capabilities of the NetApp® Data ONTAP® storage operating system to help you create a differentiated Infrastructure as a Service offering.
You can leverage integrated NetApp technologies for your cloud platform to enable continuous operations, data protection, monitoring and chargeback, and secure multi-tenancy, all the way down to the storage layer. NetApp OnCommand® Insight software provides API-based automation for common storage management processes, streamlining deployment and maintenance of your services.
