The software-defined data center is a unified data center platform that provides unprecedented automation, flexibility and efficiency to transform the way you deliver IT. Compute, storage, networking, security and availability services are pooled, aggregated and delivered as software, and managed by intelligent, policy driven software. Self-service, policy-based provisioning, automated infrastructure and application and business management complete the picture. The result is a data center optimized for the cloud era, providing unmatched business agility, the highest service-level agreements (SLAs) for all applications, dramatically simpler operations and lower costs.
In a sense, the SDDC is simply the logical extension of server virtualization. Analogous to the way that server virtualization dramatically maximizes the deployment of computing power, the SDDC does the same for all the resources needed to host an application, including storage, networking and security.
