Storage Programmability: The Key to the Software-defined Data Center

The terms “software-defined data center” (SDDC) and “software-defined storage” (SDS) are commonly thrown around, typically being associated with the abstraction of core infrastructure functionality into a common software plane that can then be deployed on low-cost, commodity hardware. This definition
