Everyone seems to have a software-defined play these days. When IBM talks about software-defined, we use the more global term, Software Defined Environment (SDE), an environment that takes care of every element of data center infrastructure right from computer hardware to middleware to end-user software. But why there is a need of a Software Defined Environment, how IBM SDE is different from other software-defined architectures and what kind of impact and opportunities it will bring to the data center infrastructures? Keeping these into mind, IBM brings to you an exclusive Software Defined Environment Solution Brief that explicitly describes how SDE has evolved and become the foundation for an efficient IT infrastructure. In the solution brief, IBM offers many evidences and opportunities to help you take full advantage of the Software Defined Environment, let’s take a look:
The right strategy at the right time
With technology getting complex, business leaders are prompted to look for a simplified, responsive and adaptive infrastructure to meet the IT challenges and demands. A Software Defined Environment is the next step in the evolution of agile, optimized information technology that brings far more responsiveness and flexibility by automating the entire data center infrastructure.
Creating a workload-aware IT infrastructure
The Software Defined Environment framework transforms static infrastructure into a dynamic, continuously optimized, workload-aware virtualized resource that allows line-of-business users to take advantage of IT as and when needed without delay, thus enabling far greater business agility.
In a Software Defined Environment, infrastructure matters
For IBM, SDE is about how we view the infrastructure as the critical, perhaps even foundational basis. With freedom of choice in infrastructure using open industry standards and the ability to capture information about workloads that do not depend on specific systems, IBM Software Defined Environment can improve IT economics through efficiency, handle big data volumes for real-time insight and ensure secure transactions while optimizing the entire computing infrastructure — compute, storage and network resources.
Designed by experts with endless research and development, our Solution Brief is being referenced and shared by IBM clients and partners to answer myriad questions about Software Defined Environment raised by their stakeholders from across the world.
