Securing the software-defined data centre
The term “digital transformation” is on every CIO’s lips today, and a large part of this transformation, is the move to a software-defined data centre (SDDC).
“The SDDC is the IT infrastructure of tomorrow,” says Lutz Blaeser, MD of Intact Software Distribution. “For really innovative businesses, it’s already here, bringing compelling benefits such as lower costs, and increased productivity and agility, as it has been designed to offer faster speeds and flexibility by enabling IT services to be provisioned more quickly to users.”
With the SDDC, the infrastructure in its entirety is virtualised and delivered as a service, he explains. Even the management is totally automated, and configurations of the hardware are also maintained by intelligent systems, as opposed to traditional data centres, in which infrastructure is managed through devices and hardware.
