Breakthrough Technology: The Software-Defined Datacenter and How it Works - Webinar By John Ripma

Online Event


Overview: In this 90 minute webinar we will examine the concept and design of Software-defined datacenters. How are they built, maintained, and scaled up or down. We will focus on the impact that virtualization has had on the design and function of SDDs. 

Why Should you Attend: The Software-defined data center is designed to provide better overall service, not just for the data center technicians and engineers, but for the users of data base services. It doesn’t matter if your role is with back-office automation, middleware, ERP, business intelligence, point of sale, etc., how your applications are provisioned and managed should be of some concern. 

The Software-defined datacenter is technology that will reduce the staffing footprint needed to support an environment. It will allow the current staff to focus on higher order work that has more impact on business outcomes and meeting business objectives. From an efficiency standpoint, SDD technology has reduced the average time it takes to provision an environment drop from 3-4 weeks and 12 -15 people to under 24 hours and 5 people. 

Software-defined data centers are all about virtualization, and is based on our ability to abstract, pool and automate the provisioning/de-provisioning processes. This reduces the time to build out compute, network and storage environments, improves performance, and reduces costs. For those working in Information Technology at any level, it is critical that you have a working knowledge of Software-defined datacenters.
