Software-Defined Data Centers (SDDC) Transforms Traditional Data Center by Delivering Networking, Storage, Compute, and resources as Advanced Policy-Based Software Capable and Central Management of the Entire Data Center
Software-Defined Data Centers (SDDC) transform traditional data center by delivering networking, storage, compute, and other resources as advanced policy-based software capable of dynamic provisioning of resources and central management of the entire data center through a single point of control. The SDDC market is projected to have an increasing growth as SDDCs enable single point of control at reduced operational cost and provide improved data center security. The global SDDC market is projected to be USD 83.21 Billion by 2021, and to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 26.57% during the forecast period (2016–2021).
