Enterprises today are looking to make every aspect of their data center infrastructure more software-defined – with the ultimate goal of achieving the software-defined data center (SDDC).
According to Andrew Hillier, CTO of Cirba, the SDDC is not achieved by simply bolting together virtualization, software-defined networking, and software-defined storage technologies. Rather, it is an operational state, achieved by adopting a new way of managing and controlling all the moving parts within the infrastructure.
Critical to this control is having the ability to align the capabilities of the infrastructure (supply) with the requirements of the applications (demand). In this slideshow, Andrew offers four core elements to achieve this alignment and build the foundation for getting to the SDDC.
