Continually increasing storage needs is a bottomless pit for IT decision-makers. No sooner is an investment made in conventional storage systems, the next one is required – hardware replacement included. However, a dynamic approach is currently establishing itself with software-defined storage, which represents a genuine alternative to these escalating costs and the sustainable development of cost-effective storage infrastructure in companies of all sizes.
SDS provides companies with the flexibility both to implement customized solutions in new environments as well as to supplement existing storage environments optimally. With a price that is often 50% to 80% lower than that of proprietary storage systems, companies of all sizes now have access to tools for managing with data explosion in an elegant and cost-effective way.
To take account of developments such as the Internet of Things, every company should be aware that SDS solutions belong in its infrastructure roadmap in the future.

ALL FLASH STORAGE
THE PLATFORM FOR SMBs AND LARGE ENTERPRISES
Storage capacity is no longer dependent on the inflexible product lines of conventional storage manufacturers with SDS. SDS enables seamless, flexible scalability of performance and capacity, independently of each other. Customers can start with a minimum configuration and scale their SDS infrastructure as required without any downtime, so that it also handles the growing requirements of business-critical applications easily.
