Software Defined Data Centre Is The Future Of Infrastructure Architecture

Posted by TDB Fusion, on 31 Aug 2016

Software Defined Networks

A recent report from Forrester claims that traditional data centre thinking must end.

The potential impact of SDDC products is immense, offering an integrated architecture merging legacy architectures, cloud computing, and workload-centric architectures into a single automation domain. This report helps infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals understand this future […]

451 Research: The enterprise view: Is software-defined infrastructure driving DCIM?

Posted by TDB Fusion, on 27 May 2016

A REPORT FROM 451 RESEARCH

Enterprise spending on software-defined infrastructure (SDI) is set to increase in 2016, according to a recent study by 451 Research. Will this drive the adoption of SDI-enabling datacenter infrastructure management (DCIM) software?

Today, the role that the physical datacenter plays in SDI, including facility design and operational management with DCIM software, is often overlooked; however, this is likely to change. As more networking and compute resources become virtualized and flexible, so too must datacenter resources in order […]

451 Research: Datacenter management software: Why the outlook remains healthy

Posted by TDB Fusion, on 10 Jan 2016

A REPORT FROM 451 RESEARCH

The datacenter infrastructure management (DCIM) software market is both underdeveloped and oversupplied, making it tough going for many suppliers. While revenue for a number of individual suppliers was lower-than-expected in 2015, total sector revenue continues to grow strongly. We track 69 competing vendors, and forecast that the global market will reach $719m in 2015 and grow at a 26% CAGR through 2019.

Future growth will be fuelled in no small part by the integration of DCIM data […]
