SDDC Software Defined Storage Coverage Report – DataCore SAN Symphony, Hedvig, and ioFABRIC 201706
Our software defined storage(SDS) analysis focuses on the ever-growing list of requirements of the modern data center. We look for those requirements that address the future, not the past, and classify them into major categories, adding categories as needed. Each time we talk with an enterprise, peer, evangelist, end user, or vendor, we expand and clarify our requirements list. We look at each SDS use case, tool, option, and mechanism during our conversations and either match it to an existing requirement or add a new one. Our categories are broad by nature, but our requirements are specific by design. The goal of our research is to demonstrate the extent to which each vendor’s offerings address our requirements, as well as how they stack up against each other. Where there is little overlap in requirements coverage between two or more offerings, you may be able to use them together to form a comprehensive SDS architecture. Where they do overlap, your choice of tool will depend entirely on the specific needs outlined by your SDS architecture. Our goal is to determine how each vendor’s offerings address the SDS needs of the secure and protected hybrid cloud.
