Are you ready for Software Defined Data Center – SDDC? –

In the era of “the cloud” it’s no longer common practice to build large-scale data centers. Big physical data centers are often expensive, inefficient, and hard to manage. Software-defined data centers (SDDC) are a new and exciting way that many companies and IT pros are using to shrink those large, complex data centers into compact and simple ones. So what is SDDC and why should you care? –
What is Software-Defined Data Center – SDDC?

A data center is a place that stores and manipulates data for individuals or organizations residing in a different location. It is comprised of dozens, hundreds, or thousands of physical servers. Normally, these servers would operate as individual machines that can store data and run applications. They may interact with one another, but they are essentially isolated – leading to lower hardware utilization (how much of what you bsoftware-defined-data-center-sddcuy that actually gets used), complicated management, and higher risks associated with hardware failure.

SDDC is where all elements of data center infrastructure – CPU, networking, and storage – are virtualized and centrally configured in software. This creates a single pool of CPU, networking, and storage resources for apps, enabling them to move seamlessly between between hardware in the data center without any interruption.

What can a SDDC do for your business?While SDDC is considered as the next big thing in the eye of many IT experts, you might be still confused about what SDDC can do for you. Below we’ll cover the big three advantages.

Simplify data center managementWith a physical data center, you often need a whole team operating and managing it due to the specialized knowledge required to configure compute, storage, and networking resources. Rather than using multiple tools to manage the variety of technologies, SDDC simplifies things by providing a single platform for monitoring, managing, and scaling server resources. Troubleshooting becomes simpler because of the increased visibility granted to the system through central management.

Increase IT efficiencySDDC is an efficient way to make the most of a data centers’ hardware and personnel resources. Through pooling your hardware resources into a single virtual layer, SDDC helps you utilize every penny your organization spends on compute, storage, and networking equipment. By simplifying data center management, SDDC opens up time for other IT assignments to meet the constantly changing demands of the business.

Lower IT cost

Cost is one of the important factors when talking about infrastructure investment. According to James Hamilton, the monthly cost to operate a modern mega data center would be more than $5.5B dollars.data-center-monthly-cost-sddc-saving

While that example is extreme, SDDC still creates huge cost advantages for any company that would otherwise need a devoted datacenter or server room. What you gain in efficiency from implementing SDDC, you also gain in cost savings. That means less money spent on hardware resources and less IT staff necessary to manage it all. That time savings gives your IT team the time they need to introduce important improvements to other business units, spreading the efficiency from SDDC to every other area of your business.

Getting Ready for Software-Defined Data Center?

Don’t wait to get comfortable with SDDC. You can begin with a small-scale or non-mission critical project that’s associated with a specific low-profile service or activity. Working on a small project will let your IT team learn quickly and learn how easy SDDC makes IT management. From there, we’re sure you’ll see why bringing SDDC into your data center at-large will make life a lot easier, and a lot more profitable.
