Will Software-Defined Storage Mark the End of Traditional Storage Provisioning?
Storage budgets are not keeping pace with rapidly expanding data stores, and this is putting an extraordinary amount of pressure on storage administrators. Storage vendors have responded to customer requirements with new storage platforms which are creating new silos within data center environments and further complicating the data management landscape.

Read this report to understand the impact that SDS will have as a key component in the software-defined data center.
