Virtual Datacenter Cloud Framework (VDCF)

VDCF is a platform management framework for the Solaris Operating System. This tool helps you to safe time, deploy & update faster, avoid errors and build a secure and standardized Environment. Using VDCF you can easily combine both virtualization technologies (Zones/Containers and Logical Domains) to get the most flexibility and benefit for your agile Enterprise Grade Private Cloud environment.

On the central management server all configuration items are stored in the Configuration Repository for easy analysis. VDCF includes features for the whole server life cycle: Deployment, Live/Migration, Failover, Patching, Upgrades, Security/Compliance, Disaster Recovery, Automation, Monitoring and Software Deployment.
