Over the last decade, the enterprise data center has been transformed into a more dynamic and efficient platform to meet the changing needs of business applications due primarily to the advent of server virtualization. While server virtualization delivers impressive data center productivity gains for enterprise servers, the rapid expansion of virtual server deployments has impacted storage and network facilities causing performance bottlenecks and sharp increases in IT administration and infrastructure investment. On host flash matched with software defined flash delivery enables today's virtualized data center to alleviate these bottlenecks and achieve its full potential.
"The software-defined data center vision takes what virtualization software has already achieved for servers and delivers virtualized capabilities to the entire set of physical resources required by an application (i.e. storage, networking & security, compute) so that the resources can be optimally assigned with little to no human intervention," said Dr.
To realize this vision, there are three key areas of the SDDC that need to be addressed. The SDDC must be Dynamic to enable provisioning on demand, allocation by need and fault tolerant (FT). It must be Connected so that loads are balanced and can be run any time/anywhere while providing synchronous data replication and high availability (HA) of critical data. The SDDC must also be Simple to install and be able to be managed centrally.
