DATACENTER

Software Defined Datacenter

When Virtualization became mainstream it shook the foundation of the Datacenter. 

Utilization of hardware went from 5-9% to upwards of 60-80% or more. A single application no longer monopolized an entire server. Instead, multiple applications could co-exist on the same server. This was revolutionary for the datacenter and how resources were consumed and managed. Then shared software defined virtualized storage and networks were introduced. The Software Defined Data Center had arrived. It made agility a core feature set of your business.  

OVERVIEW

How it Works

No longer did you have 1 application assigned to 1 server, Network, or storage. This virtualization meant your traditional Data Center functions were now an abstraction that can almost run anywhere! Easier to deploy and easier to operate, upgrade and respond to your changing business. 

WHY YOU NEED SOFTWARE DEFINED DATACENTER

More Control

When you are hard coded to the hardware the lack of flexibility will hinder your response to changing business requirements. Without SDDC, scaling and deploying your application will have longer delays and less agility. SDDC allows for more control, for more granular security profile.  

  • Higher efficiency and lower costs. Virtualized IT services and automated operations management drive new levels of resource utilization and staff productivity. 

  • Application provisioning in minutes. Policy-based configuration lets you deliver workloads in minutes, with resources that adjust automatically changing business demands. 

  • The right availability and security for every application. Automated business continuity and virtualization-aware security provide exceptional uptime and control of resources. 

  • Any workload delivered anywhere. Run both new and existing applications across multiple platforms and clouds, with instant delivery to any user on any desktop or mobile device. 

BENEFITS TO SDDC

#1

Entire Datacenter networks could be migrated from layer 2 to another data center with a few clicks.

#2

Huge monolithic 3 tier infrastructure silos are no longer your albatross, but instead the SDDC fueled an unprecedented velocity for the DataCenter. 

#3

Enabling agility, and performance from weeks and months to minutes and seconds.

CLOSING

Ask yourself how can you make your IT more responsive to both internal and external customers you service?

 

Is your strategy stale? Do you need to refresh you IT technologies with a different approach? 

 

The SDDC is a reality today. You do not need to adopt all of it, today but you can strategically implement what you need and scale up and scale out as necessary. Let Nth’s expertise and experience be a key part1 of your success.
