Software-defined data centers maximize the benefits of virtualization across compute, storage and networking infrastructure.
Because control of the environment is separated from hardware and automated through software, the software-defined data center enables policy-based provisioning, configuration and allocation of IT resources. The entire environment can be centrally managed, and many operational tasks automated for greater efficiency and improved service delivery.
Benefits of the Software-Defined Data Center:
- Faster Provisioning.
- Granular, Policy-Based Control over Service Levels
- Simplified Operations and Troubleshooting
- Flexible Resource Management
- Improved Asset Utilization
Despite its many benefits, the software-defined data center can be challenging to implement. IT teams must invest significant time architecting a solution in which all data center components interoperate. Policies must be defined so that resources are allocated correctly, and applications and workloads monitored to ensure that performance, bandwidth and storage requirements are met. Automation and orchestration tools must be implemented in order to maximize the benefits of the highly virtualized environment.
Rahi Systems has field expertise in the implementation of software-defined data centers based upon industry-leading systems and frameworks. We can help you choose the right solution for your environment, and implement a solution that allows data center administrators to deploy virtual machines, assign storage and configure networks through a single graphical user interface.
