As application workloads are redefined, data centers must change. This IDC Whitepaper looks at how network automation and orchestration can aid this transition, building simpler and more agile networks.
Organizations that automate their highly-virtualized infrastructure environments discover that they are able to introduce new forms of self-service and on-demand IT delivery models. As a result, they’re far better positioned to compete in a world where the quality and performance of applications increasingly dictates success and failure.
On the journey to agility, the ultimate destination remains infrastructure defined by software and operating in a way that’s both application-aware and self-healing. For enterprises competing in the digital economy, deploying a CMP to manage increasingly complex infrastructure has become an indispensable part of that journey.

SaaS vendors are using next-generation data center principles to revolutionize the way cloud-based software applications are delivered by applying a software-defined everything (SDx) strategy. This paper examines five key principles of the modern data center design that are accelerating business growth.
Enterprises are moving to a software-defined, private cloud data center model for agility, operational efficiency, and a self-service approach to deploying applications and associated services. They are utilizing a two-tier hybrid services architecture to get the benefits of specialized hardware for front door network services and scalable software for application, stack-specific services. Read this whitepaper to learn how to integrate the necessary services with the orchestration and automation systems of a software-defined data center.
Traditional methods for provisioning and maintaining storage resources are no longer sufficient to achieving business goals due to the fact that technology layers mask the relationship of application workloads to the physical storage devices that support them. The broad adoption of disruptive technologies - including cloud, virtualization, mobility, software-defined data centers, and big data - have introduced new and more challenging requirements for enterprise IT. Find our more in this whitepaper.
A five-year-long quest for software-defined application delivery and services came to a fruitful end for this $4 billion enterprise when they chose Avi Networks and Cisco ACI as part of their move to a next generation data center architecture. Avi Networks represented the perfect complement to the network automation benefits delivered by Cisco ACI at the company.
Thanks to the rising importance of business mobility, the BYOD trend, and improvements in the underlying technology, the adoption rate of desktop virtualization is faster today than ever before.
But as enterprises move to virtualization as a foundation for end-user computing strategies, more agile, high-performing infrastructures are needed.

Enterprises are using applications to gain competitive advantage.
Success in this technology-based environment requires agility and
flexibility. And if IT wants to be the primary technology solution partner
for the business, the IT staff needs processes and tools in place to
deliver solutions at a much faster pace.
As digital services propel more and more business processes, cloud
technology is proving to be a crucial addition to the IT services portfolio.
It is far more scalable, and in many cases more cost effective, than its
predecessors. Cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and softwaredefined
data center technologies—virtualized computing, networking,
and storage—have helped IT address the “fast IT” challenge.
Why do data centers need network automation? As application workloads are redefined, data centers must change. This IDC Whitepaper looks at how network automation and orchestration can aid this transition, building simpler and more agile networks.
Enterprise-critical applications—those which drive the core of an organization—require the highest availability infrastructure to support the most stringent service levels. EMC meets this need with a high performing, functionally capable, and competitively priced high-end networked storage system—the EMC® Symmetrix® VMAX® 20K system with the Enginuity™ operating environment. The VMAX 20K scale-out architecture helps organizations exceed the performance and capacity demands of hyper-consolidation, cloud deployments, and all-virtual Software Defined Data Centers (SDDCs), while simplifying the costs of data management.
