Moving from a standard data center with physical servers, networking and storage to a software-defined data center provides many benefits, but it also requires changing the way services are provisioned and managed. More importantly for many organizations—especially those in highly regulated industries like finance, healthcare and government—it changes the way legislative and company compliance policies are met and managed. It’s enough of an issue that it has caused more than one company to hold off on making the move. There are reasons for concern: Virtualization means that data and applications cross silos and domains in ways they never did before. Until the organization can figure out the dependencies and map processes in logical ways, it makes sense to worry about meeting compliance requirements and passing audits.
