The advent of new software standards in the datacenter have transformed what used to be a hardware-only conversation into one that’s all about software connectivity. This is an area where Akana has had a lot of impact and success with large enterprises. In this presentation, Alistair Farquharson, CTO of Akana, will discuss the importance of API management in the Software-Defined Datacenter (SDDC):
- Creating an API-driven, software-defined data center with a consistent API management mechanism.
- Quick, transparent provisioning, moving and scaling of applications.
- Decoupling datacenter resources such as compute, storage and networking from underlying hardware and transforms them into dynamic, software-based services.
- Building secure, flexible connections between applications and infrastructure through policy definition and enforcement.
