The first phase of software defined storage (SDS) is bringing many benefits to the data center. Its abstraction of storage software from the storage hardware enables organizations to manage all their storage assets from a single view, along with a reduction of hardware acquisition cost.

Join George Crump, Founder of Storage Switzerland and Tim Sheets, VP of Marketing at FalconStor in this ChalkTalk video to learn what more SDS can and should be doing.
