A VMware Validated Design is a comprehensive set of documents that provide a prescriptive and extensively-tested blueprint to deploy and operate a Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) using VMware’s technology. VMware Validated Designs synthesize the full SDDC software stack: compute, storage, networking, and management into standardized, streamlined and scalable designs, and provide detailed guidance for an optimal deployment and efficient on-going operations.
Each design is developed by experts, and rigorously tested and validated to ensure successful deployment and efficient on-going operations. Interoperability testing ensures that a validated design stays valid as subsequent versions of component products are released.
VMware Validated Designs are available as free public documents, or customers can work with VMware Professional Services to purchase a deployment service. Customers may also adopt VMware Validated Design through Certified Partner Architectures.
