At the core of cloud (public, private, hybrid) next generation data centers are software defined data infrastructures that exist to protect, preserve and serve applications, data along with their resulting information services. Software defined data infrastructure core components include hardware, software servers and storage configured (defined) to provide various services enabling application Performance Availability Capacity and Economics (PACE). Just as there are different types of environments, applications along with workloads various options, technologies as well as techniques exist for cloud services (and underlying data infrastructures). Join us in this session to discuss trends, technologies, tools, techniques and services options for cloud infrastructures.
- Data Infrastructures exist to support applications and their underlying resource needs
- Software Defined Infrastructures (SDDI) are what enable Software Defined Data Centers and clouds
- Various types of clouds along with cloud services that determine how resources get defined
- When, where, why and how to use cloud Infrastructures along with associated resources
