SDI is an umbrella term for industrial-strength applications – for compute, storage and networking – that are capable of controlling the components of today’s data center via virtualization.


What are the business benefits that software-defined approaches can offer? Michael Zhu, HP’s Senior Director of Global Solutions and Alliances, explains in the video below.
