Your Strategic Guide to Software-Defined Storage
State of the Software-Defined Storage Market
Software-Defined Storage (SDS) solutions use standard server platforms, rather than proprietary or custom storage systems, plus unique software to deliver enterprise storage services rivaling those of traditional enterprise storage solutions. Their software-defined nature makes them ideal complements for other popular software-defined solutions—cloud, server, and desktop virtualization. This paper is intended to provide an overview of the current state of the SDS market and to clarify the topic of software-defined storage.
Innovative software-defined storage solutions with hyper-convergence like Maxta MxSP are compelling alternatives to traditional enterprise storage that are more costly and difficult to manage, and are the best complement to software-defined virtualization solutions like VMware. The broad adoption of virtualization within enterprise data centers delivering cloud, server, and desktop servicesdemonstrates the unquestionable value of software-defined solutions. Choosing to continue using traditional storage systems interferes with the unstoppable data center design evolution and revolution in-progress, and risks limiting the potential benefits of software-defined virtualization in enterprise data centers.
