It is little surprise that data is growing faster than enterprise IT budgets. More devices and applications are creating more data. File sizes have increased. And organizations are under pressure to keep data for longer periods.
Today, enterprises may rely on a myriad of different storage systems based on media, protocols, and use-cases to handle their accumulating data. These systems come with unique tools, backup, and disaster recovery processes. Costs and complexities are forcing organizations to look for better ways to store, protect, and manage their data deluge.
Concurrently, the growth of Software-defined Storage (SDS) in the enterprise represents a broader transition to the software-defined data center, where infrastructure elements such as compute, storage, and networking are abstracted and virtualized. Increasing SDS capabilities, along with its flexibility and cost-efficiencies for data storage management, fuels SDS demand.
Universal SDS expands SDS’s capabilities. Storage administrators may configure, store and present block, file, and object access to their enterprise applications. Universal SDS allows enterprises to replace multiple traditional storage systems with a single consolidated storage platform. With its features and benefits, universal SDS emerges as a preferred choice for a wide variety of use cases and helps organizations better manage their growing data.
In preparing this report, DCIG evaluated fourteen SDS universal storage solutions for enterprise environments. The general feature categories evaluated include:
- Deployment capabilities
