Most vendors are positioning SDS and Hyperconvergence as THE replacement for legacy storage area network (SAN) investment. They want IT to shove the legacy SAN out the door, which most IT professionals are reluctant to do. The result is data centers are either taking a wait and see approach to SDS and hyperconvergence or using the solutions for stand alone new projects. The problem is both of these choices keep an organization from realizing the full benefit of modern architectures.
Instead data centers need to look for solutions that can extend and enhance their SAN to ease the transition to the software defined era.
Join Storage Switzerland and ioFABRIC for this on demand webinar, “How to use Software Defined Storage to extend your SAN, not replace it”. We discuss the different types of software defined storage, why vendors want to replace your SAN instead of enhance it and what you can do to not only protect your current storage investments but also prepare a path to the future.
Webinar registrants receive a copy of Storage Switzerland’s latest SDS educational white paper, “The Advantages of Storage Sprawl“. It shows you how to manage and even embrace storage sprawl instead of constantly trying to consolidate the organization’s storage resources.
