Software-defined everything (SDx)

The universe of "software-defined" IT Infrastructures

The inevitable Digital Transformation of the business, reaching the level of technology demanded by customers and respond to an increasingly competitive market with quality services / products, are the great challenges facing organizations. Challenges shared by the IT industry, which responds with the contribution of SDx solutions (software-defined everything): virtualization and provision of IT infrastructures as a service.

Software-defined everything (SDx)

Anything defined by software?

Software Defined Networks (SDN), Software Defined Storage (SDS) or Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) are the current reality of a line that has been booming since 2013 and is now becoming a trend for almost every new solution in the IT infrastructure market.

The expansion of software-defined solutions is seen as the natural evolution of the market. The SDx concept or the trend of “everything defined by software” (SDE or SDx). A viable situation given the current reality of technology and indicators of market evolution in the near future.

The software definition of IT infrastructures (SDI) opens like an umbrella in which all solutions and products have as common denominator the virtualization of the physical layer (hardware) and its provision as a service.

Focused on the Digital Transformation, organizations open themselves to all the potential of options that technology offers them, being impossible to ignore the potential and direct benefits that technology defined by software offers them. Flexibility, centralization, cost savings and agility in their activity / operations are advantages impossible to ignore.

SDN and SDS, the most advantaged disciples of "software-defined" technology

We are living a constant irruption of innovative technologies related to security, mobility and user access to the network, avalanche of new highly interactive software platforms, the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), explosion of cloud computing, intake and storage of larger volumes of data and more volatile traffic patterns …

All of them are leading to the transformation of traditional IT infrastructures towards more intelligent, agile, flexible and scalable solutions and services, capable of automating all operations and delivering new services. SDN is the answer in the network world, while SDS is the answer in storage.

In the "software-defined", everything is an advantage

  • Cost savings

    Cost savings

    In time and resources. Virtualization provides investments that are more economical, efficient and adaptable to the needs of the organization. Allowing you to enjoy services that do not involve “physical ties”.

  • Flexibility and adaptation

    Flexibility and adaptation

    Communications and storage equipment is coordinated through controllers that monitor capacity, latency and infrastructure performance. They provide significant parameters that make it possible to adapt your infrastructure in an agile and flexible way, taking into account behavior patterns.

  • Centralized intelligence

    Centralized intelligence

    As systems grow in size and complexity, so does the need for visibility and management. SDN and SDS provide centralized intelligence responsible for monitoring, managing and simplifying associated issues.

  • Automation & Troubleshooting

    Automation & Troubleshooting

    The infrastructure is completely programmable and allows to automate in a dynamic and intelligent way the provision of services, operating in an adaptive way and eliminating the need of a manual administration.

  • Orchestration

    Orchestration

    What happens in the system is monitored and its intelligence is logically centralized in a common tissue. In this way, all changes are deployed in a cohesive and uniform manner.

  • Virtualization

    Virtualization

    Services and applications interact through different APIs and there is an abstraction of the hardware that provides the physical connectivity of the control layer.
