What is Software-Defined Infrastructure (SDI)?
Software-Defined infrastructure (SDI) may be defined as a system where software controls computing hardware without much human intervention. In this kind of system, there is some level of automation that enables systems to be provisioned and run to some extent with no human guidance or effort. Processes in SDI, inclusive of infrastructure control, management, configuration, provisioning, and other architectural operations, are performed automatically through software, according to the defined operational policies and application requirements. SDI enables smart and intelligent infrastructure processes based on the varying IT operation needs in real-time. SDI allows the infrastructure to work as a self-aware, self-scaling, self-healing and self-optimizing IT environment to bring about 100% agile business processes.
