Cloud Provider Pod 1.1 is out now!

Ah the sweet smell of a cloud refresh 😌 Your Cloud Provider Pod can now deploy the latest and greatest of VMware technologies – including vSphere 6.7, and vCloud Director 9.5!

If you haven’t heard of the Cloud Provider Pod or haven’t had a chance to use it: the Pod is a cloud design and deployment automation tool purpose-built for Cloud Providers. The Pod accelerates a Cloud Provider’s time-to-service-delivery, allows the cloud admin to forget about infrastructure complexity and instead focus on delivering value to their customer.

Custom Cloud Design | 1-Click Deployment | Seamless Operations

The Cloud Provider Pod allows granular design of a cloud environment, and deployment of that environment with a single click. What’s more – the deployed stack is thoroughly tested for interoperability, scale, and performance to suit demanding cloud provider environments and workloads. This is achieved through adherence to the VMware Validated Designs for Cloud Providers (also refreshed!), and detailed setup and operations guidance.
