A Software Defined Environment is an entire IT infrastructure programmable as individual systems. One controlled not by hands and hardware, but by software. One in which workloads are dynamically assigned to IT resources based on application characteristics, best-available resources, and service level policies. Infrastructure as code! A Software Defined Environment delivers IT services in the most efficient way possible by creating a responsive, adaptive environment enabled by open standards. This approach includes not just storage and computing, but software defined networking as well.
