  • C

    continuous modeling (data center continuous modeling)

    Continuous modeling is an approach to data center management that supplements infrastructure management (DCIM) tools with engineering simulation tools such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD). 

  • D

    data center bridging (DCB)

    DCB is a suite of IEEE standards designed to enable lossless transport over Ethernet and a converged network for all data center applications.

  • data center capacity planning

  • H

    hyper-converged appliance

    A hyper-converged appliance is a hardware device that provides multiple data center management technologies within a single box.

  • hyper-converged network

    A hyper-converged network is a network that combines compute and storage network resources into a single preconfigured stack, server or brick with heavy use of virtualization. Typically, a hyper-converged network is built on server hardware that uses virtualized storage, unifying all hard disks or SSD’s into a single storage stack.

  • hyper-converged storage

    Hyper-converged storage is a technology that combines storage, compute, networking and virtualization technologies in one physical unit that is managed as a single system.

  • hyper-convergence

    Hyper-convergence (hyperconvergence) is a type of infrastructure system with a software-centric architecture that tightly integrates compute, storage, networking and virtualization resources and other technologies from scratch in a commodity hardware box supported by a single vendor.

  • N

    Nutanix Inc.

    Nutanix is a storage vendor that produces a hyper-converged storage system Virtual Compute Platform.

  • S

    SDDC (software-defined data center)

    An SDDC (software-defined data center) is a data storage facility in which networking, storage, CPU and security are virtualized and delivered as a service.

  • SimpliVity

    SimpliVity Corp. is the Westborough, Massachusetts vendor of the hyper-converged storage product OmniCube.

  • single pane of glass

    A single pane of glass is a phrase used by information technology (IT) marketers to describe a management console that displays information from multiple sources.
