The Future of Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC).
  • Ahmed Banafa, San Jose State University
Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) refers to a data center where all infrastructures -- networking, storage, CPU and security – are virtualized and delivered as a service. Deployment, provisioning, configuration and operation of the entire infrastructure is abstracted from hardware and implemented through software.
With SDDC, the entire data center will be controlled using a single virtualization layer. This means that all aspects of the infrastructure can be managed and controlled from one end to the other.
