Don’t Be Confined By Storage Hardware Limitations
Gone are the days when data services were tightly coupled with and confined to the storage hardware, forming infrastructure silos and incurring resource and cost overheads. Today’s IT organizations need the flexibility to manage storage capacity centrally, move data between tiers based on business need, upgrade/refresh hardware non-disruptively, and scale their infrastructure within budget.

Not All SDS Solutions are Created Equal
Many vendors claim to offer software-defined storage solutions. Yet some are tied to specific hardware or restricted to a family of equipment from a certain vendor, while others are bound by how they are deployed and operate, limited by the data services they offer, and so on. The matrix below provides an example of a technical comparison between block/file storage solutions claiming to be SDS and shows why DataCore is the only vendor that can deliver on the promise of true software-defined storage.
