A private cloud based on VMware’s Cloud Foundation software suite, delivering a completely integrated hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI).
Dedicated Cloud Compute Foundation — DCC Foundation — is CenturyLink's private cloud and software-defined data center solution based on Vmware’s Cloud Foundation Architecture. It includes software-defined networking and VSAN Storage to deliver a completely integrated Hyperconverged Infrastructure-as-a-Service. Built on industry-leading technologies, this service offers deep flexibility to meet a wide range of private cloud requirements.
DCC Foundation is a software-defined data center that enables full automation and self-service via vCloud Director and extensive APIs. We even offer native remote console access — an IP-based KVM solution. Alternatively, you can engage our expert management teams to implement and maintain your private cloud solution for the full "white-glove" treatment. And underneath it all, the hypervisor and infrastructure are fully-managed.
Once your DCC Foundation customer instance has been stood-up, virtualized systems can be deployed as needed with virtually no downtime. It's the beauty of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI), where all the elements of a cloud solution reside at-the-ready: compute, network, storage and security.
If you have pre-existing workloads — on-premises, in CenturyLink Cloud, on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure Cloud, or any other cloud platform — you can use Cloud Application Manager to integrate them with DCC Foundation and manage them from a single powerful interface.
VMware workloads may be migrated from on-premises to DCC Foundation in a self-service fashion using vCloud Director. The "Bring Your Own IP" feature allows you to easily copy production environments multiple times without encountering IP conflicts.
More and more often, organizations find themselves reaching the limits of scalability and capacity on-premises infrastructure. Dedicated Cloud Compute Foundation offers an easy, direct, self-service path to migration for VMware solutions originally deployed in-house. With minimal configuration, it's as simple as pointing to a new endpoint to migrate painlessly and securely.
Both Healthcare and Financial applications have extremely stringent security requirements. Software-defined networking (SDN) provides multiple natting capability. This means each virtualized system can be assigned a separate VLAN, which is a critical requirement for architectures with high security requirements. So if one system is compromised in any way, the other systems remain independent, and all activity between systems is logged and tracked.
Financial services applications demand both dedicated hardware and maximum speed in performance, but not at the expense of control and flexibility. DCC Foundation delivers a totally secure private cloud solution that allows customer to maintain complete control of their data. And VSAN virtual storage with SSD drives provide highest performance measured in 100,000's of IOPS.
Convert any VMware-based cloud to a hybrid solution by connecting it with Dedicated Cloud Compute Foundation. This extends your private cloud environment, and provides access to extensive self-service networking capabilities such as software-defined firewall, VPN, SSL certificates, IPSec and "Bring Your Own IP." Powerful automation enables rapid expansion in response to changing workload demands.
