VMware vCloud® Director™ orchestrates the provisioning of software-defined datacenter services as complete virtual datacenters (VDCs) that are ready for consumption in a matter of minutes. While a virtual machine provides only virtualized compute, the virtual datacenter provides virtualized compute, networking, storage, security and availability. With vCloud Director, an administrator can provision this complete set of services necessary to make workloads operational in minutes. As a result, software-defined datacenter services and virtual datacenters fundamentally simplify infrastructure provisioning, and enable IT to move at the speed of business. vCloud Director 5.1 further enables the creation of a private cloud with several new features.
