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.
