The Case for SDS - An IDC Infographic, Sponsored by IBM

Why SDS? SDS is key to deploying a hybrid cloud for metered, on-demand consumption of private/public cloud resources. Enterprises generally have a positive awareness and acceptance of SDS. ...more

Software-Defined Storage — Opportunities for the Enterprise

IDC believes that software-defined storage (SDS) continues to transform IT deployment and consumption of storage resources. For enterprises, SDS is really an on-ramp to deploying a hybrid cloud — one that allows a metered on-demand consumption of private and public cloud resources. Deploying SDS therefore is not a question of "if" but a question of "when." IDC's August 2015 Software-Defined Infrastructure Survey found that 75% of enterprises have deployed or are considering deploying some form of SDS in their environment. For such enterpris ...more

Supercharge Your Apps with All-Flash Storage

The tipping point has arrived. Large enterprises are planning their nextgeneration datacenters around flash-based storage, and for good reason. Flash arrays provide read and write performance that is orders of magnitude faster than spinning media at a total cost of ownership that is on par with disk and will soon be lower. The benefits not only include improved application performance, but more consistent performance, lower latency, reduced storage footprint, streamlined storage administration, and lower operating costs. These advantages are to ...more
