The SDDC is a concept in its infancy and, as such, IT managers would be wise to adopt interim offerings and build on them as the technology advances.
The software-defined datacentre (SDDC) is an evolving architectural and operational philosophy, not a product you can buy with a demonstrated return on investment (ROI).
The SDDC vision is built on three fundamental architectural pillars: virtualisation at all layers; orchestration and automation; modular standards-based infrastructure.
Traditional infrastructure provisioning and management methods are not enough to support the frequent changes required for massive and dynamic systems of engagement.
SDDC architectures hold the promise of simplification and the benefit of hiding the complexities of infrastructure provisioning and management.
