VMware Validated Designs provide the most comprehensive and extensively-tested blueprints to build and operate a Software-Defined Data Center. A VMware Validated Design is composed of a standardized, scalable architecture design backed by VMware’s technical expertise and a VMware software “bill of materials” comprehensively tested for integration and interoperability. Detailed guidance that synthesize VMware best practices on how to deploy, integrate and operate the SDDC is provided as part of a VMware Validated Design to aid end-users ensure performance, availability, security and operational efficiency. VMware Validated Designs are available in a variety of use cases that can build on each other, enabling a modular approach to deploying the VMware SDDC.
The security and compliance guidance outlines the built-in controls in the VMware Validated Design for Software-Defined Data Center and the additional controls that can be added by using enhanced guidance.
*EARLY ACCESS* Architecture and Design Guidance for NIST 80-53
This Early Access document represents an initial release of architecture and design guidance specific to NIST 800-53. This compliance domain will serve as our baseline that will then be translated and enhanced into specific guidance documents to address each regulation as a stand-alone document.
*NEW* NIST NCCoE 1800 Special Publication NIST 1800-19A:
VMware in partnership with NIST has deployed VMware Validated Design at the NIST National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence. Learn how this joint project will help regulated industries adopt cloud technologies and comply with applicable laws such as FISMA, PCI, and HIPAA as well as voluntary frameworks like NIST Cybersecurity Framework
The Product Applicability Guide details how applicable VMware SDDC products can enable a customer to produce technical control outcomes defined by government and industry regulations, standards and frameworks. The Product Applicability Guide for NIST 800-53 documents a baseline for VMware products and solutions (VMware Validated Design, VMware Cloud Foundation) using NIST 800-53 NIST as a minimum default for configuration.
