Traditionally, applications were considered as a self-contained single unit but this perception has been changed due to the introduction of software defined applications. Software defined applications are the group of independent micro-services which communicates with each other via application programming interfaces (APIs) like open cloud computing interface. These interfaces enables the user to use the enormous potential of automation for both within and across applications in the cloud. Software defined infrastructure considers various hardware tools as different software entities and operates them through advanced automation. It enables the end user to manage and operate their active data center and networking at the same time.
