Software-defined Data Center: What it is and why it matters

johncummings on ‎08-06-2014 08:20 AM

One of the best definitions of Software-defined Data Center (SDDC) that I’ve come across is from Helen Tang’s post to this blog in May (While Software-Defined holds the promise of changing everything – you need to do your homework):


“SDDC is where ‘control-enabled’ business applications will influence their own infrastructure based on business conditions; in concert with an application control plane that prioritizes all resource requests. The software defined environment is policy-based and controls virtually all aspects of the data center.”


The potential gains – in agility, cost savings and availability – are very real, but as Helen points out, getting the most from SDDC takes some careful research and planning. If you’re looking for an overview of SDDC and what it can do for your business, check out Chris Coggrave’s video below, recorded at HP Discover 2014 in June.

+Rispondo per cortesia, tuttavia, anche se sono sempre interessata dalle novità, non mi sembra che quanto ho letto possa interessare anche me, che non sono un'azienda; forse per i consumers può essere utile qualcosa più "ad hoc"; però è molto bello vedere che un'azienda come la vostra non smetta di cercare e fare innovazione; questo è non solo business; risponde anche ad una tensione profonda dell'uomo di migliorarsi e migliorare l'ambiente che lo circonda. Auguro a tutti voi di continuare la vostra attività con soddisfazione e proficuamente. Farete anche voi un OS?

Grazie Bianca per i complimenti e le bellissime parole e grazie soprattutto per gli auguri che noi di HP sentitamente ricambiamo. Per quanto riguarda l'OS quello che possiamo dire e' che per il momento non c'e' niente in progetto in tal senso.
Nel frattempo le consiglio di seguire anche il blog di HP Converged Infrastructure in Italiano che puo' trovare a questo link:
