A roadmap to Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) management at HP Discover

A roadmap to Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) management at HP Discover


The IT world loves buzz words and hypes…. In 2012 we heard a new term, Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) coined by former VMware CTO Steve Herrod. What is all about SDDC?  In simple words, it is the evolution of the data center with resource abstraction, pooling and data center automation to achieve better manageability, security and scalability

From HP’s point of view, the SDDC enables IT to optimize the rapid creation and delivery of business services. This capability is reliably enabled through policy-based automation, from the infrastructure up to the application level using a unified view of physical and virtual resources.


Also SDDC aligns business and IT like never before by:

  • Providing open choices regarding how best to consume and/or deliver IT for maximum agility
  • Better utilization
  • Higher flexibility, capacity and business value

All of these benefits abstract the complexities under the hood of SDDC infrastructure and control software. It is very important to manage and monitor these complexities. Without the right management strategy and roadmap, there is a higher probability that you will mess-up your SDDC implementation.


Please join me at HP Discover (Thursday, Jun 12, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM - BB3376 - A roadmap to software-defined data center (SDDC) management) to learn how to build a roadmap and strategy for SDDC management.

With the right management strategy and roadmap in place, you’ll enjoy a significantly higher probability of success with your SDDC implementation
