In this highly connected world we live in, a website, a mobile app or a SaaS application built today can be used by billions of users tomorrow. Or even today, a new marketing campaign can generate millions of visits to a website that didn’t even exist yesterday.
This agility and scale requires an equally agile and scalable IT infrastructure. The Software Defined Datacenter enables IT to deliver this agile and scalable infrastructure. It is an infrastructure that lives primarily in software and is independent from the underlying hardware. It is suited to run web scale applications but also to host the large amount of legacy applications that still exists in most businesses.
A high level of automation keeps the infrastructure manageable, even at large scale. Application owners are able to consume resources within the boundaries specified by the business or IT. DevOps teams have the ability to continuously integrate their software without human intervention by using the possibilities of the Software Defined Datacenter.
Clever monitoring software provides both operators and managers with the information they need to efficiently manage the SDDC. And by connecting the monitoring and automation together a self-healing datacenter can be created.
Virtualization is the key building block of the software defined datacenter. Virtualizing every layer of the infrastructure makes it possible to define every infrastructure component in software. VMware vSphere is the central component which frees compute from the hardware and makes it software definable. NSX does the same for networking and VSAN and Vvols are completing the SDDC by adding software defined storage.
The growing scale of IT creates a need to automate day to day IT tasks. By leveraging the power of the SDDC we are able to deliver a highly automated solution built on vRealize Automation. The powerful policy framework and extensibility options give almost unlimited possibilities to deliver anything as a service. All served from a portal that comes with it out of the box.
