Software Defined Datacenters (SSDC) is a term invented to describe new datacenter networking systems and their connection to server systems centralized management and deployment. SSDC is leveraging centralized management and deployment of networking devices and server hypervisor hosts in a way then their configuration is seamlessly configured in order to automate, simplify and speed-up IT services deployment.
