Software-Defined Technology 2015

Click through for five software-defined technology predictions for 2015, as identified by Silver Peak.

In 2014, we saw the enterprise continue its technology transformation from hardware use to software adoption with the proliferation of the cloud. We saw the concept of the software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) emerge and join the ranks of other software-defined technology such as the software-defined network (SDN), the software-defined data center (SDDC) and software-defined storage (SDS).

In 2015, we can expect to see more IT teams embrace the software-defined model, which will allow their organizations to conduct business more efficiently, scale and have greater control of their network. For instance, the software-defined data center is changing the way people are approaching how they manage their network and SaaS applications. It is no longer about just optimizing the WAN, but also about simplifying path conditioning and path security.

With software-defined WANs, IT teams will be able to correct the Internet’s latency and loss problems, giving enterprises a better, more consistent connection. For the first time, they can gain insight into all traffic traversing the network – no matter its final destination.

Silver Peak has outlined five predictions for what we can expect to see in our software-defined future.
