The design for cloud operations and automation considers components for security and compliance, cloud operations, and cloud automation. It includes numbered design decisions, and the justification and implications of each decision.
Security and Compliance Design The Security and Compliance layer contains the Identity and Access Management component, which is required to control access to the SDDC solutions. In this design, the identity and access management function is provided by VMware Workspace ONE Access. To control access to the cross-region SDDC components, you add a cross-region Workspace ONE Access deployment.
Cloud Operations Design The operations management design includes the software components that make up the operations management layer. The design provides guidance on the main elements of a product design such as deployment, sizing, networking, diagnostics, security, and integration with management solutions.
Cloud Automation Design The Cloud Automation layer using vRealize Automation provides the consumption model for the SDDC. The design provides guidance on configuration, organization, and consumption of the services to enable declarative blueprint orchestration in a multi-cloud environment.
