Implementing an SDDC has a profound impact on the network. This report, authored by industry analyst and expert Zeus Kerravala, explains why.

    Someone needs to get a sense of proportion.

    Agreed SDDC may have a big impact - especially on data centre operators, but it is mainly around improving workflows.

    Compare it to moving to data centres in the 1st place, using IP by default, or the migration from mainframe by default to PCs and client / server and it doesn't even get near the short list for big "paradigm shifts" (another well over used term)...

    Software Defined Data Center(SDDC) definitely will have a big impact on data center operators. It will be very useful in data networking. Data storage, computing and networking are the vital functionality if we are talking about IT functionality. Cloud computing is now a very useful and and necessary. It allows application software to be operated using internet-enabled devices. Cloud storage device is so useful for data storage online.
