Tips & Tricks: Android Share Permissions

Manage app permissions in Android Marshmallow so they can only access what you choose.

  1. Open your device’s Settings app. Under “Device,” tap “Apps” to see your list of installed apps.
  2. Tap the icon for the app you want to manage. On the app info page, find a list of current permissions assigned under “Permissions.”
  3. Tap “Permissions” to change permission settings. Toggle the button to the left to turn existing permissions ‘off’. Toggle the button to the right to turn those permissions back ‘on’.
  4. Note: Some apps may not be fully functional if certain permissions are turned off. You can change these settings at any time.

Tech Terms: SDDC

SDDC is short for software-defined data center. May also be called software-defined datacenter (SDD) or virtual data center.
Software-defined data center (SDDC) is the phrase used to refer to a data center where all infrastructure is virtualized and delivered as a service. Control of the data center is fully automated by software, meaning hardware configuration is maintained through intelligent software systems. This is in contrast to traditional data centers where the infrastructure is typically defined by hardware and devices.
Software-defined data centers are considered by many to be the next step in the evolution of virtualization and cloud computing as it provides a solution to support both legacy enterprise applications and new cloud computing services.

Core Components of the Software-Defined Data Center
According to Torsten Volk, EMA, there are three core components of the software-defined data center: network virtualization, server virtualization and storage virtualization. A business logic layer is also required to translate application requirements, SLAs, policies and cost considerations. (Source: EMA Blogs; The Software-Defined Data center: Core Components)

Software-defined data center is a relatively new enterprise computing phrase, but a number of vendors have announced software-defined data center products, including the VMware vCloud Suite.
The phrase software-defined data center (SDDC) was coined by VMware’s CTO, Dr. Steve Herrod.
