In essence, a software-defined environment (SDE) optimizes the entire computing infrastructure - compute, storage and network resources - so that it can adapt to the type of work required. In today's environment, resources are assigned manually to workloads; that happens automatically in a SDE. You get continuous, dynamic optimization and reconfiguration to address infrastructure requirements.
Underlying all of this are policy-based compliance checks and updates, in a centrally managed environment. SDE has the capability to accelerate business success by making a happy marriage between workloads and resources so you have a responsive, adaptive environment. IBM Systems and networking capabilities are designed to take full advantage of a SDE, which will be shown as an example with IBM PureSystems.
