Why Model-Driven Application Provisioning is Better than Workflow Deployments


The goal of the Software-defined Datacenter (SDDC) is that every datacenter function can be delivered as a service on any cloud at any time. At a basic level, this implies that these services need to have a high level of reuse in order to truly be multi-cloud capable and fit into the SDDC mantra.

Much of the datacenter is being reinvented to fulfill the promise of this new cloud era. One fundamental piece that is ripe for change is software deployment. Scripted or workflow-based deployment methods are out, and model-driven provisioning is in. This article will explain why this shift is necessary and why you should be rethinking your software delivery process. Workflow-driven solutions cause:

  • Tight coupling of application, deployment, and environment limits app portability and increases the amount of work and maintenance for hybrid clouds
  • Poor alignment between the development and infrastructure teams
  • Lack of automation and increased rework in an already error-prone process
