Software Defined Networking For Better Scale-out Storage

Leveraging Software Defined Networking For Better Scale-out Storage

Intelligently placing data within a storage system is not necessarily a new concept, but leveraging software defined networking to make decisions about data while it’s still in transit is. When software defined networking and software defined storage are combined they can overcome some of the challenges that high performance scale-out storage systems encounter. As a result these new, software defined, scale-out systems provide highly flexible, highly reliable and highly cost effective storage systems that can support a wide variety of workloads.
