software-defined datacenter

software-defined datacenter

A cloud computing datacenter that is fully virtualized and controlled by a single software system. Coined by VMware for its vCloud Suite, the term implies that all virtualization aspects of the datacenter are fully automated and integrated. In contrast, datacenters have traditionally been managed by separate server, network and storage software components. See server virtualization, network virtualization and storage virtualization.
