Certified Reference Design for Service Providers

Certified Reference Design for Service Providers 2.0

The Certified Reference Design (CRD) for VMware Cloud Providers is a pre-validated set of software components that simplify the deployment of a VMware vCloud Director based multi-tenant Cloud in a predictable and efficient manner.
Even if not yet completely automated, the intent of the CRD is to reduce the complexity of deploying, upgrading, and managing dependencies between the VMware components required for a vCloud Director based service.

Architecting a VMware vCloud Director Solution for VMware Cloud Providers

Recently, Tomas Fojta has updated his vCAT-SP document named “Architecting a VMware vCloud Director Solution for VMware Cloud Providers”.
The document now includes vCloud Director 8.10 and 8.20 releases with all their improvements, first of all the vCD 8.20 integration with NSX to provide advanced networking services to Tenants.

You can download the document in PDF format or view it online.

In my opinion, if you are a Cloud Architect involved in the design of a vCloud Director based Public Cloud, this document is especially relevant for you.
