Virtualization has changed the way that computing resources are deployed within the datacenter, but the datacenter itself is the same as its ever been - slow, inflexible, and restrictive. These traditional, rigid datacenters greatly reduce an IT organizations ability to respond to business needs, which negatively impacts business performance.
To move beyond these limitations, companies like Yottabyte have created the “software-defined infrastructure” to redefine your datacenter architecture. A software-defined infrastructure embodies the core concept of server virtualization – that resources can be applied much more efficiently when they are not tied to the underlying hardware – but expands that concept to apply to the entire datacenter infrastructure. Computing, storage, and networking resources become logical services rather than discrete hardware units, resulting in a datacenter environment that can be configured, provisioned, and automated with flexibility that's simply not attainable in a traditional environment.
A software-defined infrastructure is defined by three key concepts:
Most software-defined infrastructure offerings are either trapped inside overpriced hardware appliances or sold as individual components that must be managed and configured independently. This adds cost and complexity that puts these solutions out of reach for most businesses.
With Cloud Composer, we take a different approach. We know that simplest is usually best, so we offer Cloud Composer as a complete bundled solution – hardware, software, and and optional co-management – to shorten your time to value. If you want it even simpler, we can host the whole infrastructure and simply extend a hybrid cloud to your premises.
