The Cisco® Virtualized Multi-Tenant Data Center (VMDC) solution provides design and implementation guidance for enterprises deploying private cloud services and service providers building virtual private and public cloud services. The Cisco VMDC solution integrates various Cisco and third-party products that are part of the cloud computing ecosystem.
Interest in cloud computing over the last several years has been phenomenal. For cloud providers, public or private, it will transform business and operational processes, streamlining customer on-ramping and time to market, facilitating innovation, providing cost efficiencies, and enabling the ability to scale resources on demand.
Cisco's Virtualized Multi-tenant Data Center (VMDC) system defines an end-to-end architecture, which an organization may reference for the migration or build out of virtualized, multi-tenant data centers for new cloud-based service models such as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
