A software-defined data center (SDDC), in which infrastructure is virtualized and delivered as a service, can provide numerous benefits. The availability of pooled server, storage and network hardware, for instance, reduces the need for specialized components and servers in favor of affordable, off-the-shelf hardware that is easier to maintain.

Once IT professionals stop focusing on wiring things together and begin using software to manage operations, they can enjoy the benefits of greater efficiency, enhanced reliability and lower costs. In addition to the virtualization of infrastructure such as servers, storage and networking, data centers can implement orchestration and automation solutions to automate routine tasks and reduce the burden on IT staff.

Data center infrastructure management (DCIM) tools can give an organization a comprehensive view of key elements such as power, cooling and computing burden, helping to identify inefficiencies and spot potential problems. Together, these tools can help shift data center optimization into high gear.
