What Is a Software-Defined Data Center?

September 22, 2016

There's a new buzzword in the IT world – it's “SDDC,” and it stands for “software-defined data center.” The concept of an SDDC is rather simple. Basically, it's a data center that is completely virtualized and software-based. This means that all of the data center's computing, networking and data storing are done through software rather than hardware. So why should your small or mid-size business care about SDDCs? There are several notable benefits:

  • No need to make physical changes to hardware – Because almost all of the hardware in an SDDC is abstracted, your company won't have to spend valuable time altering the physical hardware in order to make changes to the data center. This means you'll have more time to focus on other important tasks.
  • Less energy is used – Because they require far less power to run than traditional data centers, SDDCs allow companies to save money while conserving energy. This is a win-win for both your organization and the planet!
  • Security is improved – Using an SDDC gives your business centralized control over its software, which makes it easier to keep tabs on the data center and identify any security threats that may arise.

Considering these perks of SDDCs, it's easy to see why many IT professionals say that they are the future of data centers. However, this technology has a long way to go – the market for SDDCs is still very fresh, and many of the solutions currently offered are vendor-specific. Therefore, it's best to consult a qualified Plymouth Meeting data center service such as Alura Business Solutions before trying to deploy an SDDC at your organization.
