The ability to integrate data from different business functions and departments is vital to obtain a single view of customer relationships, as well as to make the most of analytical technologies to make predictions and make timely and motivated decisions for corporate governance.
Objectives that, on the hardware side, translate into the need to ensure effective integration of storage resources, often difficult to achieve where, in addition to silo segregations, different solutions have been stratified over time. A problem that can now be faced with software-defined storage (SDS) solutions, i.e. with the creation of a software layer capable of virtualizing and standardizing the management of data stored on storage array devices from different suppliers.
With SDS, lock-ins relating to technologies and individual vendors and the headaches associated with the simultaneous use of new and old generation devices are overcome, simplifying operations such as resource provisioning and management, and avoiding specific actions on individual devices. In summary, SDS brings the flexibility offered by software-defined infrastructure virtualization solutions available today on hyperconverged systems, software-defined data centers (SD-DC), and geographic networking (SD-WAN) to the storage field.
Solutions are increasingly necessary to quickly respond to the needs of starting new business projects, minimizing the burden for administrators. With the introduction of SDS modes, not only are incompatibility and non-homogeneity of the disk arrays used to be overcome but the foundations are laid for the effective use of cloud storage services, through high-level governance methods for all resources.
