View VMDC Framework

The Cisco VMDC architecture is a blue print for creating and deploying scalable, highly secure, and resilient infrastructure for both cloud and traditional data center environments. It can meet the needs of enterprise, service provider, and public sector customers. The architecture consists of modular validated designs that address specific areas, and the VMDC modules can be combined to offer a pre-integrated design approach.
