SDS: Making the Benefits of the Hyperscale Clouds Available to the Mas

Recommended Posts

Software-Defined Storage (SDS) promises a more flexible storage model where storage truly becomes one of the services among other computing services. Hardware independence is part of this architecture as data and services must flow more freely when applications change and systems scale up and down. Instead of embedding data management functionality into proprietary closed appliances, SDS decouples this functionality from the hardware--enabling functionality that focuses on data--and naturally spans hardware. Like other infrastructure commoditization patterns over time (e.g. soft switches), this decoupling also exposes the inflated margins (60 percent) contained within storage appliances today.
