  1. 1. 1 EIT 9.1: Beyond Hyper-converged – VMware EVO SDDC Integrated Systems Anil Kapur, VMware
  2. 2. 2 Data Center World – Certified Vendor Neutral Each presenter is required to certify that their presentation will be vendor-neutral. As an attendee you have a right to enforce this policy of having no sales pitch within a session by alerting the speaker if you feel the session is not being presented in a vendor neutral fashion. If the issue continues to be a problem, please alert Data Center World staff after the session is complete.
  3. 3. 3 EIT 9.1: Beyond Hyper-converged – VMware EVO SDDC Integrated Systems VMware's software-defined data center vision extends virtualization across all data center resources (compute, storage, and networking) to offer a fully automated, policy-driven resource provisioning, management, and operation of a private cloud. EVO SDDC integrated systems deliver on this promise. EVO SDDC Manager provides automated, simplified, rapid setup of the entire SDDC- based private cloud as well as automated lifecycle management of the entire stack including hardware and software components. In this session, the EVO SDDC solution and architecture are presented in depth.
