White Paper: Software Defined Data Centers will Change the Way Enterprises Migrate and Deploy Cloud-Based Applications

CohesiveFT, a thought leader in enterprise application-to-cloud migration and software defined networking (SDN), today released their latest whitepaper to be presented at Cloud Expo Europe.

The whitepaper is entitled “Software Defined Data Centers will Change the Way Enterprises Migrate and Deploy Cloud-Based Applications” and focuses on the new term for the concept of freeing tthe application layer from the the physical infrastructure layer. The paper begins with an analysis of the term and offers a point of view for the future of SDDC features with more fine grained, targeted concept. You can view the Whitepaper here.

“The point is that all of the work that’s been done to virtualize the datacenter/system components – CPU, storage, network, apps, OS – has to date, resulted mostly in islands or silos of virtualisation, and especially vendor-specific landscapes. Now, increasingly heterogeneous virtualised elements can be combined and aggregated into logical resources with Software Defined Data Centres,” wrote William Fellows, Research Vice President at 451 Research. “The concept of CFT’s container SDDC fits well with metaphor – containers arrive at docks and are craned into configurations.” Cloud Expo Europe in London: 29 – 30 January CohesiveFT is a Silver sponsor of Cloud Expo, hosted at London’s Olympia National Hall, 29 – 30 January. In addition to presenting the whitepaper, CohesiveFT’s CEO, Patrick Kerpan, will also:
