Software Defined Storage (SDS) was supposed to take the data center by storm, sweeping IT professionals off their feet on the way to storage management bliss. But, most SDS projects are never actually started or abandoned long before they reach their objective. Why? SDS is Broken. In this webinar we discuss the challenges facing legacy SDS solutions and how the next generation of SDS plans to fix it.
Learn how SDS is broken:
- SDS is hardware inefficient, requiring too much CPU power and too many storage devices to generate performance, which eliminates the SDS price advantages
- Inefficiency Limits Hardware Choices – Eventually re-locking the customer into a specific hardware vendor/type
- Inefficiency Forces Specialization – SDS solution must focus on solving just one problem, Random IO, Sequential IO or Capacity, but can’t do all three – which leads to more storage silos
Then we introduce you to a next generation SDS technique called Holistic SDS and explain how it can address many of the problems of first generation SDS.
