Avoid inclusion of expensive, purpose-built hardware in your data center. A software-defined data center (SDDC) allows you to build your data center to your specifications without the constraints of specific hardware requirements. Software-defined data centers are flexible, cost-effective, and agile.
A software-defined data center gives you the power to change your infrastructure to meet new business challenges or support new initiatives. Here are some of the ways you can leverage a software-designed data center:
Software-defined storage (SDS) makes it easy to manage your data. Storage can be virtualized for more efficient user and access management.
Shape and control the flow of your data traffic with a software-defined networking (SDN). You can use SDN to help manage issues, such as network security, resource availability, and network security.
A software-defined data center works seamlessly in a hyperconverged infrastructure.
The high-performance, easy customization, and simple management of an SDDC can significantly reduce deployment times for applications.
