Download this EMA Radar Report™ to discover how Software-Defined Storage allows IT organizations to exploit new capabilities and technologies.

The landscape is changing for how data is being stored, and a preferred SDS solution should span the entire enterprise, enabling IT organizations to exploit new capabilities and technologies as well as continue to leverage legacy network-based storage devices. This EMA Radar report focuses on the core capabilities needed to deliver SDS throughout the entire enterprise. There is much diversity in storage solutions throughout the enterprise. Storage solutions, even those from the same vendor, can have unique hardware, operating systems, connectivity, services, application program interfaces, and data types (block, file, and object). An enterprise-wide approach is preferred because one cannot get the full benefit of software-defined storage unless it is implemented on all storage in the enterprise.
