VMware Software-defined Datacenter Roadshow


Today I attended a VMware roadshow about the VMware Software-defined Datacenter (SDDC). This was a very clear roadmap from VMware on how they are putting vCloud Director (vCD) on steroid Smile.

just to be sure:
VMware Software-defined Datacenter (SDDC).: All infrastructure is virtualized and delivered as a service, and the control of this datacenter is entirely driven by software


A lot of VMware updates will follow… but I can’t personally wait to have Veeam 7 in my hand, to be able to backup vCD! (Using the vCD API, Veeam will display the vCD infrastructure directly in Veeam Backup & Replication™, backup all vApp metadata and attributes, restore vApps and VMs directly to vCD, and support restore of fast-provisioned VMs.)

If you still have the possibility to attending this roadshow in your country, I strongly advice you to do so Winking smile
