HP Has Software Defined Services In Two Flavors – Data Center Automation Virtual Appliance and Operations Orchestration. Here is a quick guide. Quite Useful Services For the SMBs. Previously we have discussed about Software Defined Data Center, Software Defined Network, Software Defined Storage etc. topics through many articles. This one is a practical example.
Service Catalogue of HP Software Defined Services
Bringing the abstraction of physical data center in to a software-defined set of services is a great idea and possibly desired even by the current public cloud users with multiple servers. There is nothing more great than having a virtually isolated environment.
It is very difficult to find various types of services provided by HP. HP Software Defined Services has a special landing page with the named Software Defined Data Center. If you are using any service of HP Helion Cloud, you can join HP Helion Developer Network. It can be quite useful. Coming back to topic again,
Their SDDC service has two types – Data Center Automation Virtual Appliance and Operations Orchestration. It is probably normal to get lost with so many services :

We talked about SDDC and automation in cloud. They actually have full range of services for server automation :

From a brief look, you’ll understand which are softwares and which are human services. There is a separate webpage listing the Free Softwares and Trial Softwares :

Software Defined Data Center enables the hybrid cloud strategy for the enterprises. All the stuffs are looking like random data, not that. OpenDaylight Project is a collaborative open source project to accelerate the adoption of software-defined networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). HP, IBM are their investors. All the noise like information is for what is called IT as a service (ITaaS). Less known, not a buzz word. ITaaS does not follow the cloud service model. Behind that official comment behind the HP Public Cloud closure fake news, we thought that people will buy from us, carried lot of thoughts. “Cloud” itself a buzz word plus a service model which was not present before, which possibly is not compatible with everything on this Earth. Planning for abstraction of physical data center in to a software-defined set, demands real life experience of working with physical production, which HP, Intel and IBM has.
At the end of day, grand mother’s analog typewriter, can be simulated on computer via a type of service as well as it can be used as a computer keyboard. Software Defined Services are difficult to initially understand but basically they hold the highest possibility of convergence. HP, IBM like companies understood a big truth by analyzing themselves – not every company can run everything exactly like in the cloud model. IT as a service (ITaaS) explains that part.
