What Are the Benefits of Software-Defined Storage?
Unlike traditional network-attached storage (NAS) or storage area network (SAN) solutions, with SDS you aren’t locked into joint hardware and software combinations from specific vendors. There’s no need to drain your budget with expensive bundles – simply make use of your existing storage or server hardware.
Easy scaling to meet future demand
With storage resources abstracted from the hardware, scaling out physical storage capacity is far easier. SDS streamlines your environment, enabling the latest storage management features to be leveraged as required, without having to introduce additional resources.
In an ever-evolving business landscape, it pays to be adaptable. SDS brings with it a level of flexibility, unmatched by traditional storage infrastructure. It allows an organization to dynamically provision and optimize storage resources. This provides the control and agility to adjust to new trends and requirements.
Traditional storage infrastructure can leave you with a mishmash of disparate systems that don’t communicate with each other. SDS works to consolidate these isolated silos, uniting them under a standardized management system, thereby maximizing efficiency.
