Technical specifications – Virtual Private Cloud

The Virtual Private Cloud solution differs from the Public Cloud (Server Pro) service in that you can purchase part of our infrastructure specifying all the values of your resources, and manage them using the VMware Cloud Director software.

Virtualization

The Virtual Private Cloud virtualization infrastructure is based on  VMware Cloud Director and on VMware vSphere. VMware Cloud Director is integrated with the network virtualization platform for the Software-Defined Data Center VMware NSX.

Virtual Private Cloud requires 3 simple steps to create your own management system:

1. Choose your Virtual Private Cloud resources

2. Create your infrastructure with VMware Cloud Director

3. Manage your private infrastructure with VMware Cloud Director
