Software-Defined Data Center
Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) is a term that was coined by VMware. In SDDC, all infrastructure is virtualized and delivered as a service, and the control of this data center is entirely automated by software.
SDDC is the ideal architecture for private, hybrid and public clouds.
Mobile SDDC Project
The mobile SDDC project is hardware-agnostic and comes with a script that will automate the setup of a nested virtualized environment on any server. The mobile SDDC setup contains the VMware vSphere-NSX platform with a demo that showcases NSX’s network function virtualization (NFV) features.
The NFV features provided in the mobile SDDC include the software-defined load balancer on a NSX edge appliance, distributed logical routing capabilities and distributed firewall services (commonly known as micro-segmentation).
With this mobile SDDC demo, customers will be able to see the network virtualization and security benefits of NSX:
- Software-defined load balancer highlights the high agility of NSX network services compared to traditional hardware network services
- Distributed logical routing capabilities improves network traffic efficiency as it reduces network hair-pinning
- Micro-segmentation provides a “zero trust” architecture for data center
