Software-Defined Storage — Opportunities for the Enterprise

Thumb original systems hardware system storage ts technical white paper tsw03568usen 20180123

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 enterprises, the question of "why" is adequately clarified. In fact, IDC found that 61% of enterprises that deployed SDS have realized tangible benefits such as reduction in capex/opex costs, ease of management, reduction in provisioning time, and peace of mind knowing that they are no longer locked into a single vendor solution. IDC believes that SDS is compelling enterprises to switch from a pattern of selecting systems based on their capacity, performance, reliability, and cost characteristics to a service-focused decoupled acquisition model in which hardware and software are acquired independent of each other. Furthermore, the software in question (i.e., SDS) is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. In fact, for enterprises and vendors to succeed with SDS, they have to take a use case–driven approach.

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 ...
