In software-defined data centers, silos will create 'real problems'

The technology exists to start building software-defined data centers, but that doesn't mean they're going to start popping up everywhere.

Software-defined data centers require existing silos between server, storage and networking teams to come down, and that's not always easy to do in enterprise IT departments. In this video from the VMworld 2013 conference, Bob Plankers, a data center and cloud architect for a large Midwestern university, talks about these people problems and how they can hinder progress.

Plankers also discusses other news from the show, including the release of VMware vSphere 5.5.
