The link between IT and end-users is applications. Existing applications, new applications that will be developed to support new business value, and the increasing emergence of SaaS apps in the business.<click>And these applications will be sourced from existing datacenters, as well as from external cloud services.<click>And of course end users will access these applications from a growing variety of devices. This creates the new IT landscape that must be addressed in the new world of cloud computing. An approach based on cloud computing promises new benefits to the business:<click> A more flexible, and efficient infrastructure upon which the journey to IT agility will begin. <click>A new generation of enterprise applications, that will represent the convergence of the type of end-user experience we see in the consumer world, with the requirements of the enterprise.<click>And finally, a more empowered mobile workforce, that doesn’t compromise the security of corporate assets and data.
To enable fault tolerance for a virtual machine, simply right click the virtual machine in the inventory and select Fault Tolerance > Turn On Fault Tolerance. vCenter Server creates the virtual machine with the same name as the primary virtual machines, but indicates that it is the copy by placing the word secondary in parentheses after the name.You use the same process from the primary virtual machine to turn the feature off. You cannot disable FT from the secondary virtual machine.
VMware vCloud Director also changes the way that organizations consume IT services. Instead of filing service desk tickets and waiting in queues, application and line-of-business owners can utilize self-service portals to access their own virtual datacenters. VMware vCloud Director enables users to consume these resources as a catalog-based service through a web portal and programmatic interfaces.IT teams can define multiple consumption models using the same infrastructure, ranging from capacity-as-you-go to reserved pools. These can be delivered at an appropriate cost model through integration with VMware vCenter Chargeback, which helps drive accountability and enables granular usage monitoring.
In this new model, the IT organization becomes a cloud service provider for the business, achieving the benefits of cloud computing without sacrificing security or control. Users experience unprecedented responsiveness and agility, and IT management can reduce costs through increased consolidation, task automation, and simplified administration.VMware vCloud Director enables IT organizations to deliver resources to internal organizations as virtual datacenters. By logically pooling compute, storage, and networking capacity into virtual datacenters, IT organizations can manage resources more efficiently with complete abstraction between consumption and delivery of IT services.
Instead of providing organizations with siloed physical infrastructures, IT teams can deliver isolated virtual datacenters based on common physical infrastructure. By pooling these physical resources on the back end, hardware utilization and consolidation increases. Similarly, underlying infrastructure can be pooled into tiers and offered to users at discrete service levels and prices.
Every one of our customers has existing applications, running in existing datacenters, that represents significant investments and ongoing value. The first thing we are doing with these customers, is helping them stand-up a Private Cloud, to get the most efficiency and agility out of their existing assets. And this can be done in a pragmatic, evolutionary way. We have over 250,000 customers worldwide that are already on this path, because they are leveraging vSphere to virtualize the entire fabric of the datacenter, including CPU & memory, storage, and networking. And because they are using vSphere, they get built-in high-availability, and automated, dynamic resource scheduling to give them the cloud attributes of elastic, pooled capacity. <click>With virtualization in place, the independent silos are broken down, enabling us to automate many of the mundane, repetitive administration tasks with our vCenter management suite, further decreasing opex in the datacenter.
Another attractive benefit of cloud computing is the notion of on-demand, self-service, which contributes to increased customer satisfaction and business agility. This notion is just as important in the Private Cloud, but needs to be done in a way that conforms to IT security policies.<click>Businesses are made-up of multiple organizations, such as our example here with both Marketing and Finance. Each organization has members, or users, with respective security policies, as defined in corporate identity management systems. <click>With vCloud Director, IT organizations can define catalogs of pre-defined IT services, that can be accessed through a self-service portal, and deployed to pre-configured logical datacenters, or Virtual Datacenters as we refer to them, that represent committed SLA’s to the organization. And with our Chargeback module, IT can set-up pay-for-use models for each organization, dependent on their virtual datacenter and actual usage parameters.
These steps are what transform existing datacenters, into cost-effective, flexible Private Cloud environments. That is the focus of VMware’s Cloud Infrastructure solutions, covering all aspects of infrastructure, including security and management.
The real value in cloud computing is when all boundaries are flexible, to enable cross-cloud federation and coordination. This is what gives customers maximum choice and flexibility in how to streamline costs and improve agility. Our belief is that cloud computing implies a ubiquitous model for interoperability between multiple clouds, both within and outside the enterprise. We refer to this as Open Cloud Computing, which we are fully committed to.<click>This is why VMware is working with so many public cloud service providers, as part of our vCloud program, to create compatible cloud environments for application mobility.<click>In particular, we are working with a handful of service providers to create a secure, enterprise-class cloud service, that uses a common service-level management model based on vCloud Director, and a common security model based on vShield, to extend the trust boundary of the enterprise into these public cloud services, and enable the safe, secure mobility of application workloads between the environments. <click>This class of service is referred to as the VMware vCloud Datacenter Service, and ensures a common platform, management model, and security model, to create the ultimate secure hybrid cloud environment. With vCloud, open cloud computing moves from being a technology discussion, to a business decision!

Integrated vShield technologies such as perimeter protection, port-level firewall, and NAT and DHCP services, offer virtualization-aware security, simplify application deployment, and enforce boundaries required by compliance standards. Upgrading to the full vShield Edge suite adds advanced services such as site-to-site VPN, network isolation, and web load balancing.
