  • An SDDC (software-defined data center) is a data storage facility in which all infrastructure elements -- networking, storage, CPU and security -- are virtualized and delivered as a service.
  • Deployment, operation, provisioning and configuration are abstracted from hardware.
  • Those tasks are implemented through software intelligence.
  • SDDC benefits and challenges
  • A software-defined data center is a way to dynamically configure and provision applications, infrastructure and IT resources. The design allows the data center to be managed as a unified system or aggregate set of domains. A key factor is the separation of control planes and data planes.
  • Components of an SDDC - Virtualization is central to the software-defined data center. There are three major SDDC building blocks:
  • Network virtualization combines network resources by splitting the available bandwidth into independent channels that can each be assigned -- or reassigned -- to a particular server or device in real time.
  • Storage virtualization pools physical storage from multiple network storage devices into what appears to be a single storage device managed from a central console.
  • Server virtualization masks server resources, including the number and identity of individual physical servers, processors and operating systems (OSes), from server users. The intention is to spare users from managing complicated server-resource details. It also increases resource sharing and utilization, while maintaining the ability to expand capacity at a later date.
