VMware Validated Designs (VVD) provides prescriptive guidance and tools to plan, build, and operate a Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC). The designs help customers deploy VMware SDDC components to achieve a wide variety of SDDC use cases with predictable results and according to best practices.

VVDs are extensively tested to ensure all components and their specific versions are validated:

  • to work in unison,
  • to scale to predetermined design objectives,
  • and to operate as VMware customers expect.

The VVD for SDDC is a holistic approach to designing, operating, and upgrading the full SDDC stack.
