Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC)

Definition - What does Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) mean?

A software-defined data center (SDDC) is a type of data repository in which all data center resources and services are provisioned, monitored and managed through software-based techniques and processes. SDDC makes it possible to control and manage the hardware, software and other IT operations of the data center entirely through automated software techniques.

Techopedia explains Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC)

A software-defined data center is usually an enterprise class data center using cloud computing and virtualization techniques. Typically, an SDDC will have server virtualization, storage virtualization and network virtualization. All of these components will be managed by a software layer that will provide centralized and integrated management of all resources.
