Validating Software-Defined Storage Operating Models for the Enterprise – eBook




Software-defined storage has evolved through multiple iterations from the separation of hardware and software, to the current model of hardware-specific designs.  As the hardware components of storage platforms have standardised, product differentiation moved to software, but the pendulum is now swinging back to solutions that match hardware and software together.  These so-called “Task Specific” solutions provide the best of open-source software and optimised hardware.  This eBook, sponsored by SoftIron, digs into the details of four models of deployment from Proprietary, DIY, Supported to Task Specific.  The report looks and rates each option, with respect to their strengths and weaknesses.
