The software-defined data center (SDDC) holds tremendous promise for enterprise IT. Within the SDDC, the benefits of server virtualization are extended to storage and networking, so the entire infrastructure can be abstracted and centrally managed under a unified platform. IT teams are able to leverage unprecedented levels of virtualization, orchestration, and automation to achieve the services-based delivery model that enables true digital transformation.

Securing cloud environments is different from securing traditional data centers and endpoints. The dynamic nature of the cloud requires continuous assessment and automation to avoid misconfigurations, compromises, and breaches. It can also be difficult to gain complete visibility across dynamic and rapidly changing cloud environments limiting your ability to enforce security at scale. On top of these challenges, cloud governance is critical to maintain compliance with regulatory requirements and security policies as they evolve. Because cloud deployments are not just implemented once and left untouched, organizations need to consider how to integrate security into their CI/CD pipeline and software development lifecycle. Implementing a security solution that addresses cloud challenges requires deep security and cloud expertise that organizations often do not have. Once in the cloud, organizations manage and create environments via automation, adapt their workloads to changes by automa

Virtualization is one of the most highly demanded of all IT projects this decade because it enables enterprises to reduce capex and opex costs and at the same time increase business efficiency and agility. However, implementing, supporting, and managing virtualization can often be difficult tasks, especially as deployments increase in scale and complexity and impact more areas of the datacenter. These more complex infrastructures often require highly skilled engineers with in-depth business knowledge and systems management capabilities. Projects such as infrastructure optimization and automation initiatives for self-service provisioning are key because they enable enterprises to streamline business processes and utilize cloud strategies and mobility solutions. IDC shows how partnering with experts who can implement, optimize, support, and manage virtualized environments may be the right course of action. By utilizing partners, enterprises will be able to avoid some of the potential pit

The four pillars of computing cloud, mobility, social, and analytics are driving new levels of network innovation in datacenter networks. These forces are now buffeting the datacenter along with virtualization and the Internet of Things (IoT), resulting in sweeping changes in traffic patterns that expose the limitations of traditional networks and their operational models. To become a resource rather than a bottleneck to overall datacenter performance, the network must deliver not just exceptional performance and scalability but also unprecedented automation and orchestration that can yield agility, flexibility, and service velocity. This Technology Spotlight examines these key trends and discusses the role that Cisco's Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) plays in addressing these ongoing challenges for enterprise IT and network managers.
