In this slidecast, Jay Muelhoefer from IBM presents: Software Defined Infrastructure. The discussion focuses on the potential IT and business value that an Software Defined Infrastructure deployment can deliver, as well as IBM’s current offerings and vision.
Imagine an entire IT infrastructure controlled not by hands and hardware, but by software. One in which application workloads such as big data, analytics, simulation and design are serviced automatically by the most appropriate resource, whether running locally or in the cloud. A Software Defined Infrastructure enables your organization to deliver IT services in the most efficient way possible, optimizing resource utilization to accelerate time to results and reduce costs. It is the foundation for a fully integrated software defined environment, optimizing your compute, storage and networking infrastructure so you can quickly adapt to changing business requirements. A comprehensive portfolio of management tools dynamically manage workloads and data, transforming a static IT infrastructure into a workload- , resource- and data-aware environment.
