The Software-Defined Data Center Comes Of Age
Traditional data center thinking has ended.
Better automation tools, container abstractions,
software-defined networks (SDNs), and
composable infrastructure have ushered
in unprecedented abstraction, yielding the
software-defined data center (SDDC). The
impact of the SDDC is immense, offering an
opportunity to integrate legacy architectures,
cloud, and workload-centric architectures into
a single automation domain. This report helps
infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals
understand this vision and defines the current
state, opportunity, and emerging vendor
landscape of the SDDC.
This is an update of a previously published report;
Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for
continued relevance and accuracy.
