    Executive summary

    This document describes the reference architecture of an EMC enterprise private cloud (EPC) solution for an on-premises infrastructure as a service (IaaS) offering that enables IT to deliver Vblock-based private cloud services to their business. It introduces the main features and functionality of the solution, the solution architecture and key components, and the validated hardware and software environment. The companion EMC Enterprise Private Cloud Solution Guide is intended as an enablement reference to begin the planning and design of your enterprise private cloud and to set the stage for a successful implementation.

    This document is intended for executives, managers, architects, cloud administrators, and technical administrators of IT environments who want to implement a private cloud IaaS platform. You should be familiar with VMware vCloud Suite, storage technologies, and general IT functions and requirements, and how they fit into a private cloud architecture.

    EMC private cloud solutions enable customers to build enterprise-class, scalable, multitenant platforms that enable:

    Complete management of the infrastructure service lifecycle

    On-demand access to and control of network bandwidth, servers, storage, and security

    Provisioning, monitoring, and management of the infrastructure lifecycle by the end user without IT administrator involvement

    Maximum asset utilization

    This EMC EPC solution provides a reference architecture for a Vblock-based on-premises IaaS cloud solution that integrates all the key components and functionality of an enterprise private cloud, as shown in Figure 1.
