What most do not realize, however, is that SDDC
is not achieved by simply bolting together virtualization, software-defined networking (SDN), and software-defined storage (SDS).

SDDC's primary focus is timely and accurate support to the Warfighter, along with positioning the command for the future while improving processes and measuring performance.
SDDC's role as surface deployment experts for USTRANSCOM is paving the way for the possible addition of even greater transportation capabilities.
In support of SDDC's role as the operational deployment and distribution champion, SDDC G5 actively participates in a Combined Arms Support Command-sponsored Capability Based Assessment to analyze capability gaps associated with terminal operations.

Early and continuous Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command (SDDC) and Transportation Engineering Agency (TEA) analysis, coupled with ERC rail expertise drawing from civilian acquired skills and integrated in CO-COM planning efforts, can contribute to a multimodal theater distribution program (TDP).
Beginning in October 2011, SDDC and the USAR in support of CENTCGM and the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) have an Army Railway Planning and Advisory Team deployed to Kabul, Afghanistan.
SDDC is also working with AFRI-COM to conduct low spectrum Phase 0 Peacetime Military Engagement between the USAR Soldiers and representatives of the Ugandan Defense Force (UPDF).

With SDN as the best basis for network virtualisation, entire data centres can be constructed purely of software -- and, indeed, the software-defined data centre (SDDC
) is the next logical step.
