Datacenters built entirely in sofware July 26, 2012Posted by vbry21 in VMware blogs.
I mentioned in an earlier Blog that I was looking at VMware vCloud Director.
One of the things we create within vCloud is Resource groups and resource groups consist of one or more DRS/vSphere HA clusters that provide CPU, Memory and Storage resources to the cloud.
We then can manage multiple DRS/vSphere HA clusters within a resource group. We then take that resource and hand it to vApps.
Cool, great and fine, but what about networking. I really want to provide that as well.
In a nutshell, we stick in a layer between the host and the network, this then transforms your physical network into a pool of network capacity that enables creation of multiple isolated virtual networks to connect workloads in your cloud.
Hey presto we have now virtualised and pooled my missing resource.
