With a software-defined datacenter, you gain the ability to manage diverse hardware as a unified resource pool. You get greater flexibility and more resilience. That’s the big thing we’re learning from cloud—that to respond rapidly to the demands of the business, you have to move away from a highly-customized infrastructure to a standardized, automated infrastructure.
The benefits of transitioning from traditional datacentre to modern, software-driven architecture are numerous. Some of them are:
• Optimize your datacenter infrastructure by leveraging the innovation and enterprise experience built into the Microsoft cloud platform.
• To take on the challenges of big data and mobility, you need resilient, reliable infrastructure that can expand or contract as demand shifts.
• The power of cloud brings both opportunities and challenges to the enterprise capabilities of Windows Server, Microsoft System Center, and Microsoft Azure, you can respond rapidly to changing business requirements.
• We deliver innovation in the datacenter, allowing you to change your approach to infrastructure.
By bringing software-defined compute, networking and storage to your datacenter, you can reduce both complexity and cost.
• Take advantage of enterprise-grade virtualization to increase resilience and agility.
• Rethink storage to reduce cost and increase flexibility.
• Simplify multi-tenancy and connectivity across the cloud with software-defined networking.
Management and automation are key to improving datacenter operations, speeding delivery of services to the business.
• Provision infrastructure and applications faster with automated processes and end-to-end management.
• Manage and monitor with enough detail to fix problems before they become critical.
• Take advantage of new service delivery options to speed response to the business.
You can increase agility with access to cloud resources on demand. With datacenter innovation and new hybrid options, the Microsoft cloud platform gives you the right infrastructure for today’s big challenges.
• Scale up, scale down while keeping costs low.
• Use new hybrid options to address ongoing issues and meet specific business needs.
• Simplify hybrid with consistency across clouds.
How do you get your users the resources they need—whether they are developers or LOB application owners? A great approach to service delivery should allow you add in cloud resources to your infrastructure in a hybrid model, so that you’re automatically drawing capacity. A strong service delivery model also allows you to pre-approve compute/storage/network resources to designated users, so that authorization isn’t a roadblock.
