VMware Software Defined Data Center Benefits

Robert Trasatti
VIP of Infrastructure Engineering at MindSHIFT
It allows us to deploy faster, more scalable. We get far more use out of the hardware we buy in our datacenters, reducing electrical costs. We own our own datacenters, so electric cost is a big priority, as is space. The more space we can rent out to customers, the more profitable. VMware allows us to virtualize very well. It also allows us to orchestrate and automate, which reduces operating expenses. View full review »

It's battle tested, it's cool. I would say in a lot of cases, bulletproof. It's very simple to use, it's very easy to understand, it's easy to set up and initialize and get going, and it actually provides the enterprise class performance people want. View full review »

Things that used to take a real long time to do with compute are much faster with virtualization. Now it's the same thing with storage and network because you don't have to worry about any physical hardware. You need additional load balancing or firewall or even a VLAN stretch somewhere, it's now all done with just a keyboard. View full review »

It improves this whole process because you are no longer locked into solutions that the hardware provides. In other words, you're able to scale things a lot more easily and are able to define things a little more from a fluid type of perspective, so that they can change a lot more quickly.

I think it's less user intensive to set up new bits of the network now that we are using SDDC net features. View full review »

We were able to scale down in the data center, we were able to scale down with the physical boxes to VMs. It also released space because we actually have the data center offsite that we spend money on such as power, etc. We were scaling down on the hardware, so using VMware has really improved in cutting back/ decreasing the cost of hardware.
