The Logic of Logic Layer

Moving to a Converged Data Center is Easier Than You Think

by Kurt Hildebrand | 02.17.17

The software-defined data center (SDDC) is increasingly considered to be the next step in the evolution of virtualization and cloud computing. It typically consists of three core components: network virtualization, server virtualization, and storage virtualization. But a business logic layer is also required to translate application requirements, SLAs, policies, and cost considerations into provisioning and management instructions.

The Virtues of Virtualizing with SDDC

It’s Easier than You Think

by Kurt Hildebrand | 02.13.17

The software-defined data center (SDDC) is emerging as a means of simplifying and cost-reducing enterprise computing—as well as deploying software-defined appliances that leverage existing technologies to enable a standardized, repeatable framework for data center operations. But is implementing SDDC worth the effort it takes you to virtualize data center resources?

For a business, disasters come in all shapes and sizes: a downed server, power outage, flood, fire, and even a plague of frogs. But while all of these have varied consequences, especially the frogs, each one shares a common theme—they put your data at risk.

Have You Seen the Latest in Converged Infrastructure?

by Kurt Hildebrand | 12.02.16

Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of growth in converged infrastructures. Essentially, a converged infrastructure is any type of infrastructure that takes two or more discrete pieces of technology and consolidates them into one information system solution. Traditional converged systems, ones that are packaged solutions, take existing technology and consolidate it into a repeatable, standardized deployment framework. But the new model of converged systems takes that disparate technology and converges it in a much more tightly integrated way, using something called the software-defined data center. Software-defined is just another way of saying hyperconvergence.
