SDS

Acronis Storage

Every piece of data is required to be stored somewhere. We all know about hard drives, optical discs, tapes and other means of storage. But cloud storage and software-defined storage are the two modern methods of storing data, especially when we talk about large volumes. Acronis entered Software-Defined Storage (SDS) market in 2016, pioneering it with Blockchain based data verification. Acronis Storage is an SDS solution that allows service providers and end-users to quickly and easily transform heterogeneous hardware into protected, enterprise-grade, scalable storage to improve your total cost of ownership.

Acronis Storage 2.3

Acronis released a new update of Acronis Storage — a universal and cost-effective scale-out software-defined storage (SDS) solution. It's built on a proven architecture that has been in production for more than six years in Acronis’ own datacenters. Acronis Storage is in use with service providers and businesses worldwide, providing easy management for block, file and object storage workloads using industry-standard hardware platforms. Earlier this year, ESG Lab confirmed that Acronis Storage is easy to use, proven, agile, cost-efficient, and scalable, outperforming the competition by 100 to 300 percent. The latest update — Acronis Storage 2.3 — has made it even better.

Universal Software-Defined Storage (SDS) – A Better Way to Manage Your Storage Infrastructure

What is SDS? So, just what we need, another acronym.  Right? But what we do need is a way to manage storage software separately from the underlying hardware. That’s SDS — Software Defined Storage.  

It’s a relatively new term that is being bandied about a lot lately, and not everyone uses it exactly the same. However, the simplest and most basic definition is that SDS decouples storage software from the hardware where data lives to achieve continuous availability, faster performance, higher efficiency, unlimited scalability, and reduced costs.
