Want to save your company time and money by automating manual processes? vCloud Automation Center (vCAC) is expanding automation in the virtual data center. By taking the idea of self-provisioning and automation a step further, vCAC has become a leader at the forefront of automating the once arduous processes of managing a data center. With vCAC, you can enable simple self-service provisioning for your end users while still maintaining control of your configurations and company policies. vCAC spans multiple technologies and platforms, such as VMware vCloud Director and vSphere, Citrix Xen Server, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Red Hat KVM. This is a huge benefit if you’re running multiple virtualization technologies. Once you’ve configured your server templates, optional add-on software, and policies, your end users can build servers straight from a catalog. It’s as easy as shopping online.

Searching for a way to manage your virtualized environment more effectively? No longer do your users need to call tech support to add disk space, create or delete a server, or otherwise manipulate their VMs. The vCloud Director portal gives them the tools to easily handle those tasks themselves, reducing strain on your in-house IT staff. VMware vCloud Director 5.5 sits on top of vSphere and works with vCAC to help you better manage your virtualized assets. vCloud Director is the key to creating and managing your own private cloud. As a front-end portal, it allows your core infrastructure engineers to easily define and allocate server resources to business units. Those business units can then manage and allocate their resources as they see fit. Whether that business unit is a single developer that wants a private development environment or a whole subsidiary of a Fortune 500 enterprise, vCloud Director offers the same ease of use, scalability, and agility. If your servers are hosted in the Zumasys cloud, your systems are already managed by vCloud Director. That means you can log into a dedicated and customized portal for your organization and securely manage your data center resources, create additional servers, and manage your environment as if you were standing right in front of it. As long as you have an internet connection, you have the ability to access and manipulate your virtual server resources from anywhere in the world, 24/7/365. VMware is constantly evolving its vCloud Director platform to make your virtual data center even easier to manage. This is definitely a product to watch!
