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.
