What is VMware Cloud Foundation?

VMware Cloud Foundation is VMware’s integrated software stack that bundles compute (vSphere), storage (vSAN), and network (NSX) virtualization in a single platform – for the intent of simplifying provisioning, easing administrative burdens, and promoting secure and agile deployment of private cloud resources to be consumed like public cloud.
