There has been quite a bit of marketing rhetoric around Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) since VMware’s acquisition of Nicira. In this session we explore the components of a SDDC. Our specific focus is on the composition of a SDDC’s resource model: Compute, Networking, and Storage. The emphasis is on the disaggregated I/O for Network and Storage resources.
Objective 1: Describe the disaggregated I/O resource model employed to facilitate the use of virtualized Ethernet and Block devices in a Software Defined Data Center.
After this session you will be able to:
Objective 2: Explain how end-user driven provisioning of virtual Ethernet devices and Block devices serve to decouple resource use from infrastructure management.
Objective 3: Describe some of the opportunities and challenges associated with employing disaggregate I/O.
