Cisco VFrame Data Center

Cisco VFrame Data Center is a network-driven service orchestration solution that enables the coordinated provisioning and reuse of physical and virtualized computing, storage, and network resources from shared pools.

The industry’s first service orchestration solution to use the network to help ensure that applications are dynamically supported throughout the infrastructure, Cisco VFrame Data Center achieves cross-technology orchestration, helping you progress further toward a service-oriented infrastructure.


Cisco VFrame Data Center provides a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Operational cost savings: Lowers overall data center operating costs by making provisioning and changing of infrastructure configurations more efficient
  • Faster and simpler service provisioning: Speeds up new application provisioning as well as application reconfiguration and scaling
  • Robust virtualization scale-out: Helps ensure that production applications can be deployed or migrated across virtualized infrastructures without sacrificing security, reliability, or performance.

Cisco VFrame Data Center components include:

  • Cisco VFrame Data Center Appliance: Central controller that connects to Ethernet and Fibre Channel networks
  • Cisco VFrame Data Center GUI: Java-based client that accesses application running on VFrame Data Center Appliance
  • Cisco VFrame Web Services Interface and Software Development Kit: Programmable interface that allows scripting of actions for Cisco VFrame Data Center
  • Cisco VFrame Host Agent: Host agent that provides server heartbeat, capacity utilization metrics, shutdown, and other capabilities
  • Cisco VFrame Data Center Macros: Open interface that allows administrators to create custom provisioning actions
