Jim Miller, EMAGetting a Grasp on Software-Defined Storage

by Jim Miller, Senior Analyst, Storage Management

On June 30, my EMA Radar report on software-defined storage was released. The report covers nine vendors, ranking them on a scale of solution impact, deployment cost efficiency, and vendor strength. Software-defined storage has been lacking a true industry-recognized definition, at least when it comes to any degree of specificity. Most would agree that at a high-level, software-defined storage aims at making storage application-aware, enabling server administrators, application managers, and developers to provision storage in a policy-driven, automated self-service manner. This radar report focuses on the core capabilities needed to deliver software-defined storage throughout the entire enterprise.
