1 C H A P T E R 1 | The software-defined datacenter C H A P T E R 1 The software- defined datacenter Whether you're at a mid-sized business, a large enterprise, or a cloud service provider, you might think you've extracted as much value as you can from implementing virtualization in your datacenter. After all, virtualization saves your organization money by consolidating your server workloads and letting you retire obsolete hardware. You've also lowered your costs even further by moving some of your workloads from your on-premises infrastructure into a public or service provider–hosted cloud. But, you've also discovered that even though virtualization and cloud computing can address some IT challenges, they're no panacea— they also bring new problems. For instance, instead of dealing with server sprawl in your datacenter, you're now faced with virtual machine (VM) sprawl; in fact, it's worse because it's easier to spin-up a new VM than it is to procure and provision new server hardware in your environment. Instead of managing only one infrastructure in your datacenter, you now need to deal with managing resources in the cloud, as well. If you're not careful, you might end up with two sets of administrative tools that need twice as much time and staff to manage.
