Exploring the Software Defined Data Center

Presented by

Eric Slack, Sr. Analyst, Evaluator Group, Alex McDonald, Chair, SNIA Cloud Storage, Glyn Bowden, SNIA Cloud Storage Board

About this talk

A Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) is a compute facility in which all elements of the infrastructure - networking, storage, CPU and security - are virtualized and removed from proprietary hardware stacks. Deployment, provisioning and configuration as well as the operation, monitoring and automation of the entire environment is abstracted from hardware and implemented in software. The results of this software-defined approach include maximizing agility and minimizing cost, benefits that appeal to IT organizations of all sizes. In fact, understanding SDDC concepts can help IT professionals in any organization better apply these software-defined concepts to storage, networking, compute and other infrastructure decisions. If you’re interested in Software-Defined Data Centers and how such a thing might be implemented – and why this concept is important to IT professionals who aren’t involved with building data centers - then please join us on March 15th as Eric Slack, Sr. Analyst with Evaluator Group, will explain what “software-defined” really means and why it’s important to all IT organizations and join a discussion with Alex McDonald, Chair for SNIA’s Cloud Storage Initiative about how these concepts apply to the modern data center. In this webinar we’ll be exploring: •How a SDDC leverages this concept to make the private cloud feasible •How we can apply SDDC concepts to an existing data center •How to develop your own software-defined data center environment
