One of the reasons I have been quiet on my blog lately was today released for public: vCloud Architecture Toolkit for Service Providers.
If you are designing vCloud Director based public cloud I hope you will find design considerations and recommendation included helpful. Let me highlight a few in my opinion interesting topics from the Architecting a VMware vCloud Director Solution document:
- Virtual Machine metric Cassandra database
- RabbitMQ messaging infrastructure
- Considerations around NSX Edge Cluster and NSX Controllers
- Consumption of NSX services
- VSAN impact on vCloud Director catalogs
- OAuth authentication
