The Software-Defined Data Center
A New IT Architecture For A New Era
The mobile-cloud era brings with it an exponential increase in business expectations, and IT is at pains to respond. Its rigid, antiquated infrastructure devours budgets and resources at an alarming rate, but lacks the ability to deliver applications and services at speed and scale.
This puts IT at a crossroads:
It’s time to choose between continuing down the same outmoded hardware-centric path, or moving to a new way to do IT—an architecture engineered to serve billions of mobile consumers with millions of new applications and services. A highly automated, easily managed platform that embraces all applications, for deployment across data centers, clouds and mobile devices.
This new architecture is the Software-Defined Data Center: radically simpler IT that gives your business unprecedented agility, speed, security and control. It’s the platform of the future, and it’s here today. Customers worldwide are evolving to the Software-Defined Data Center with VMware products and services, and are already enjoying its benefits.
