SlideShare: Cleaning up the SDS Mess – Four Keys to Success

Is Software Defined Storage (SDS) getting hijacked? It seems every vendor, old and new, is claiming that their storage is “software defined”. In our on demand webinar listen as experts from Storage Switzerland and Nexenta provide guidance to sorting out the SDS mess.

At its most basic SDS is the abstraction of storage services from the physical storage hardware allowing a single software storage services stack to run on a variety of platforms and manage a variety of storage hardware. The original intent was to create software only solutions that could be deployed on the customer’s choice servers. But that original intent has evolved, and now hardware vendors are providing what they claim to be SDS solutions too. In addition, SDS is being combined with an embedded compute function to create hyper-converged solutions as well.

In this webinar we discuss the differences in these approaches and you will learn what the four key deliverables of a SDS solution should be so you can decide which makes the most sense for your organization.

All viewers of the webinar have access to an exclusive copy of Storage Switzerland’s white paper “Can Your Software Defined Solution Deliver ALL the SDS Benefits”. In addition, all registrants will be able to access Storage Switzerland’s extensive library of on-demand webinars, many with exclusive white papers, without having to re-register.
