SANTA CLARA, CA – November 01, 2015 – The Software-Defined Infrastructure (SDI) Summit today announced that it would emphasize helping architects and their ecosystem move toward the software-defined data center (SDDC). With SDDC, data centers can provision new services quickly and reconfigure their infrastructure to make applications run faster. The Summit will be held on December 1-3 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
SDDC solutions from new and existing vendors will drive this high-growth market. According to Markets and Markets, the SDDC market will “grow from $21.78 billion in 2015 to $77.28 billion in 2020 at an estimated compound annual growth rate of 28.8%.” A Tuesday evening plenary on SDDC features companies such as IBM and enterprise grade colocation service provider Raging Wire Data Centers (an NTT Communications company). Panelists will discuss how SDDC advances virtualization and cloud computing by supporting both legacy applications and new cloud computing services.
SDDC thus provides a solid base for using public, private, and hybrid clouds. By abstracting applications from hardware, SDDC allows apps to run anywhere and even move from place to place. It also allows for greater automation within a data center and faster, simple orchestration across centers.
Those interested in learning more about SDDC can attend these sessions for free by registering on the Website. Pre-registration is available now at www.sdisummit.com
The SDI Summit is a three-day event, beginning with pre-conference educational sessions on December 1, which covers OpenStack implementations, CEPH open-source storage APIs, and data-center software for management and automation. Two “main tent” conference days follow and will provide a holistic view of the SDI market – and how SDI software and hardware technologies can be used to improve the IT flexibility and business agility of the organizations that deploy it. In addition to the keynotes and the session tracks, SDI Summit will feature an exhibition show floor showcasing the latest in SDI solutions.
