Data Center Virtualization Software
Data Center Virtualization Overview
What is Data Center Virtualization?Data Center Virtualization is a data center where all infrastructure has been virtualized, and the infrastructure is managed somewhat automatically by policy-driven processes.
Data center virtualization extends the virtualization concept beyond servers and desktops to other components of the data center infrastructure like networks and storage. This is sometimes referred to as the "software-defined data center".
The advantage of virtualizing the entire data center infrastructure stack is that it will be very easy to move applications across data centers without having to reconfigure them. The overall goal is a much more agile, flexible, and ultimately low-cost data center infrastructure which will allow administrators to provision new services in seconds or minutes.
