Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) isn’t just a pipedream. Three major trends mean that first time in history the SDDC is
1. Ubiquitous compute. Computing power has never been so cheap, it is no longer the constraint. The result is that we can
use computers for so many more things than we ever thought possible, not just new workloads, like analyzing advanced
telemetry data to better train drivers, but also for the datacenter’s own services.
2. VM as the dominant model. Virtualization is no longer a niche technology only reserved for a few Test/Development
workloads. In today’s world a workload is more likely to be provisioned as a (VMware) VM as onto any other system.
3. After ten years of deploying specialized hardware for every new service (Firewall, backup, load balancer, dedupe,
WAN acceleration etc.) today software-defined versions of each of these services are available, often the equal of their
hardware counterparts but infinitely agile and scalable.
In this presentation, we will outline the production – operational nature, road to implementation and value of SDDC.
