The next-generation data center – A software defined environment where service optimization provides the path

The next-generation data center represents the next evolution of the converging IT infrastructure, where server, storage, network and virtualization resources are abstracted from the underlying hardware and workloads run on the most appropriate combination of resources, whatever they may be.

In this environment, software provides the intelligence for managing the infrastructure dynamically and holistically, based on real-time workload needs. The next-generation data center transforms a static IT infrastructure into a dynamic, workloadaware infrastructure that can anticipate demands and respond with incredible speed.

This paper explores IBM’s vision for the next-generation data center, its potential to be truly evolutionary and the prescribed pathway for getting there.
