Who can benefit from this guide?

Today’s technology landscape is more complex than ever, particularly when it comes to data storage solutions. The creation, management and value extraction of data underpins virtually every single organization in existence, whether it’s immediately obvious or not. A robust, reliable and agile data storage strategy is an essential component of competitive advantage for any organization looking to achieve long term success. One such strategy is Software-Defined Storage (SDS) which, according to Gartner, is rapidly on the rise as the preferred approach for reasons which we’ll cover shortly.

“By 2024, 50% of the global storage capacity will be deployed as software-defined storage (SDS) on-premises or on the public cloud, up from less than 15% in 2020.”
– Gartner, 2020 Strategic Roadmap for Storage, August 2020

This guide is designed to help business leaders navigate the world of SDS and better understand some of the core approaches. We’ll share the pros and cons of each, and provide a framework for assessing vendor solutions so you can make the best decision for your requirements and available resources.
