    With Gartner estimating that more than 85% of data center workloads are now virtualized, it’s clear that the age of the software defined data center (SDDC) is upon us. The next steps in the evolution toward SDDC will be moving other traditionally hardware-bound functions like networking and storage into a full “as-a-service” model, so that applications and workloads can be flexibly provisioned and resourced in both private and public cloud environments.

    There are many IT and business advantages to infrastructure virtualization, including:

    • More flexible and fluid allocation of existing resources
    • Faster deployment of new resources
    • Lower failure rates
    • Higher availability
    • Hardware and processing workloads can be managed independently

    Given these benefits, it’s not surprising that one study predicts the SDDC market will grow at a compound annual rate of 28.8% over the next four years to surpass $77 billion in 2020.
