The usher of Software Defined Storage (SDS) pleasantly surprised the storage industry. This is because SDS separates out control path and data path. Control path is a software solution, which provides functionalities of configuration, provisioning, management, monitoring & analysis. SDS configures the data path to consume the traditional SAN, NAS and/or Object stores without re-inventing the proven data delivery models. It helps to unify or extend in a scale out manner, which makes it attractive to the enterprises to add storage as the data grows and not provision it upfront, thus reducing the TCO.
Today, when the data explosion undercurrent is manifested into a daunted reality, storage management has become complex, yet critical. This is where companies realize that SDS allows IT optimization in the cloud to enable automated and on-demand storage management services. The keyword that would describe the importance of SDS is ‘Agile.’
"An ideal SDS will offer a right-mix of automation, data scalability, APIs for storage management, and continuous monitoring."
SDS instill the business-critical data scalability by empowering organizations to add additional storage capabilities, without the need to purchase any hardware. An ideal SDS will offer a right-mix of automation, data scalability, APIs for storage management, and continuous monitoring. SDS’ standard x86 commodity hardware, which ensures zero vendor-lock-in, ensures cost efficiencies and high availability.
