ZFS Enterprise SAN
The Aberdeen AberSAN ZXP4 Series and Petarack are prime examples of the popular standard known as Software Defined Storage (SDS). SDS is an approach to data storage in which the programming that controls storage related tasks is decoupled from the physical storage hardware. Software defined storage puts the emphasis on storage services such as deduplication or replication, without locking the user into overpriced, proprietary hardware.
A whole host of industries, organizations and enterprises are moving towards software defined environments. By leveraging Software Defined Storage solutions to take their first critical steps, leading practice teams can now embrace the latest trends around mobility, social media and the “internet of things.” SDS provides solutions that are platform, application and protocol agnostic; that support flexible hybridized architectures and cloud-enabled environments. Put simply: the efficiency and promise of SDS can’t be ignored. The movement is here. Organizations that achieve SDS faster will reap greater opportunities for innovation and competitive advantage.
