What does Software Defined Data Center means

After the industry created a Software Defined Network (SDN) [1] term it is time for a new one. A new emerging IT buzz word is a Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) [2]. It appears that only VMware is marketing this extensively at the moment.

From a technical point of view its all makes sense: compute resources are already largely virtualized, virtual storage and virtual networks are following. Looking at the last VMware acquisition of Nicira [3] the company has many if not all necessary products to build such a SDDC Data Center.

Let's see how the market will respond to it and if other vendors start looking and using this as well in the near future.
