A software-defined data center architecture can help significantly improve IT agility. By pooling infrastructure resources, standardizing management tools across infrastructure layers, and enabling policy-driven provisioning, an SDDC can help IT groups respond more quickly to new requests for IT resources. At the same time, an SDDC enables IT groups to retain control over provisioning, reduce costs and establish a path to application modernization.
Modern Data Center Component Overview
One of the largest benefits of an SDDC data center is that because the resources can be represented in virtualized or abstracted software, physical connections and pieces of hardware do not have to be physically manipulated to make changes. For example, a switch or a storage unit can be re-allocated to different clients through a software program, without requiring manual manipulation.
Using software to plan, provision, and manage services can automate or self-provision services for customers, speeding up service deployment and saving money on operational costs of expensive manual configurations.
In addition to the service agility and provisioning benefits mentioned above, the SDDC approach has other benefits such as reduced energy consumption. Centralized data centers can use economy of scale to deploy hardware components that are optimized for mass-energy consumption as well as connect to green-energy sources such as hydroelectric, solar, or geothermal. SDDC can also improve security by centralizing control over hosted data and security.
