The transition to a software-designed data center (SDDC) will be the most significant IT transformation since the Internet was born because it aims to bring together storage, computing and data networking.

An SDDC can be thought of as an environment where all the data center resources are fluid and can be dynamically moved to the service or application that requires it based on business policy.

This research paper into the software-defined data center (SDDC) explores:

  • The drivers behind the transition to the SDDC.
  • Limitations of the current network architecture.
  • Network requirements of the SDDC.
  • What to look for in a SDDC solution provider.
