VMware Validated Design for Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC)
VMware Validated Design for Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) 4.2.x


Disclaimer: The VMware SDDC 4.2 on SPJ Solutions SDI is developed and supported by SPJ Solutions. You must obtain the solution and support from SPJ Solutions. For more information, see SPJ VMware Validated Design (VVD) Standard.

Here is a brief summary of target use cases, solution architecture, hardware and software components (including name and version), solution capabilities (including DR support). For more information, see SPJ VMware Validated Design (VVD) Standard.

Use cases

The VMware SDDC 4.2  on SPJ Solutions SDI solution provides a completely configured VMware Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) built to a standardized format and architecture. This provides a private cloud which can be quickly scaled up (or down) and allows existing VMware virtualized data center clients to extend or move their workloads into the Public Cloud. This enables companies to address such issues as rapid capacity expansion (and contraction when not needed), migration of workloads to the cloud, establishing cloud based backup and disaster scenarios, and the ability to set up development, test, training or lab capacity. All by exploiting the operational benefits and agility of Public Cloud with the ability to expand or contract the environment to meet the business needs. In fact, additional servers can be added simply and quickly to meet increased capacity of over 10,000 sized virtual guest servers per dual region.

Solution Capabilities

The SPJ Solutions SDI on VMware Validated Design 4.2  offering provides the basic building blocks for a highly scalable and automated SDDC that can be easily integrated with on-premises and public clouds based on the VMware platform.
Preconfigured Cloud building blocks that include several bare metal servers and associated VMware stack provide a starting point for scalability, automation and seamless integration to hybrid cloud.   This provides short time to value and cost effective implementation using best practices.
SPJ Solutions provided open patterns can then be used to rapidly deploy advanced applications into this environment.
Support Information
The VMware Ready Certified Partner Architecture program certifies partner solution architecture based its compliance to VMware Validated Design IT Automation Cloud 4.0.  For more information on the VMware Validated Designs, see  https://www.vmware.com/software-defined-datacenter/validated-designs. This certification agreement is between VMware and the certified partner for a specific solution architecture only.  The partner solution architecture referenced in this article is developed and supported by a partner.  It is partner’s responsibility to ensure that the solution architecture is deployed on VMware supported hardware and align hardware with VMware Compatibility Guide (vCG) or custom VMware support agreement (RPQ).

Additional Information

The partner in conjunction with the customer is responsible for aligning hardware deployments with VMware Compatibility Guide (VCG).
