VMware: Managing the Software-defined Data Center (SDDC) as Code
What is the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC)?
Software defined infrastructure is becoming the norm, and with this new capability comes the need to build and support all infrastructure as reusable software components. This is the heart and soul of the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC). When infrastructure is defined by software, it becomes possible to centrally manage all of the data center configuration information. With all of the data in software, the SDDC as a whole can now function like an application. As a result, it becomes necessary to manage a SDDC as you would any other code development project in your organization.
This blog is the first in a series of articles which will cover the evolution of the SDDC in greater detail, as we seek to help you implement new best practices to manage your new cloud-based data center. We’ll look at all of the aspects in the deployment of an SDDC, along with the processes which are necessary to control the software implementation and support.
The Evolution of the Data Center
Today, the data center is evolving to become more fluid than ever before. Configurations are no longer fixed for any period of time. The promises of cloud computing bring with it the side effect of an explosion of infrastructure configurations.
