Working Together to Drive the Software-Defined Revolution
A Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) is the perfect fit for organizations that want to increase their business flexibility with agile, cost-effective, and secure data centre infrastructure. SDDC is a data centre in which all the infrastructure - networking, storage, processing power, and security - is virtualized and delivered "as-a-service." It eliminates many of the challenges introduced by building your own data centre. It also allows your IT to rapidly deliver business applications and IT services, while optimizing costs.
Although the benefits are proven and tangible, many IT leaders are not sure how to capture them and how to evolve from their current data centre infrastructure to an SDDC. We can help you address these questions, present the appropriate use cases, and provide you with the production-proven adoption scenario, so that your business will be ready for the software-defined future.
In a Virtualized Datacentre (also called SDDC) all elements of the datacentre: servers, security, network, and storage are virtualized and delivered as a service. The management layer is abstracted from the hardware layer, and the administrator can manage the entire datacentre from a single software console. A datacentre so abstracted or virtualized is also called a Software defined data centre (SDDC).
There are several benefits of datacentre virtualization. However, transforming a traditional datacentre requires several graded and defined virtualization initiatives before moving to the final objective of a SDDC.
All servers in the datacentre need to be virtualized. The number of servers and their locations also need to be masked to provide a seamless interface and increase uniform usage of resources. Masking prevents selective utilization based on user prejudiced choices.
Network bandwidth needs to be divided into multiple channels to ensure adequate bandwidth to each server, and to be able to dynamically allocate varying bandwidths depending on utilization.
Storage needs to be consolidated and virtualized into one single storage pool for the users. This will ensure better utilization of all storage devices in the datacentre.
