A Software Defined Data Centre (SDDC) can make your vision for IT meet the vision for your business. CenturyLink's answer to the SDDC is CenturyLink Private Cloud on VMware Cloud Foundation™. This visionary solution brings together computer, storage and network virtualisation into a natively integrated stack that transforms the data centre to meet the demands of the digital age.
CenturyLink also offers these other Private Cloud solutions: Dedicated Cloud Compute Core, vCloud Air Solutions paired with our managed services and VCE Vblock™.
The journey to Private Cloud starts with an essential decision – should you build your cloud, or buy from a Cloud Service Provider?
Don't Repeat the Mistakes of Cloud 1.0. Cloud technology has fundamentally and irreversibly changed IT forever. Many benefits were gained from this new architectural approach, but there were also some very real drawbacks that IT teams discovered as they became more familiar and experienced with cloud deployments. To move forward with new, next-generation cloud solutions that support digital businesses, it is essential that these problems are resolved going forward.
In much the same way the Industrial Revolution fundamentally changed industry forever, the transition to digital business will also be a driving force for far-reaching and comprehensive changes to how organisations operate. Digital businesses will require IT platforms and solutions that can support the demands of this new paradigm, and software-defined infrastructure (SDI) will be essential.

Based on VMware Cloud Foundation,™ CenturyLink Private Cloud brings together VMware’s vSphere®, vSAN™ and NSX® into a natively integrated stack, delivering enterprise grade, globally available hyper-converged-infrastructure based on HPE® with Centurylink automation and management capabilities for a consistent operational experience across cloud environments.
Unlike legacy data centre designs where services are bound and dependent to physical infrastructure, in the Software Defined Data Centre (SDDC), services are abstracted and decoupled from underlying hardware. This allows for a new level of operational efficiency and agility because resources can span across data centres, and because we take care of the operational management of Cloud Foundation you can focus on delivering IT innovation to the business and not operational tasks.
