VMware Launches Software-Defined Data Center
VCloud Suite 5.1 combines three key VMware products to create an early version of a software-defined data center.
VMware announced Monday that it has integrated its virtualized environment software with its cloud management products, putting into one box the software that generates virtual machines, applies cloud management, and introduces performance and capacity management to the resulting environment. Dubbed VMware vCloud Suite 5.1, it combines the latest version of three previously separate products: vCenter Operations Management Suite 5.6 for virtual systems management; vFabric Application Director 5.0 for deploying applications in a virtual environment; and vCloud Suite 5.1 for managing pooled resources as a cloud operation.
The combination is available at a price of $4,995 per processor. VCenter Operations and vFabric Application Director also remain available as separate products with their separate price points. Read full story on InformationWeek
