Software-defined storage (SDS) has become a common alternative to appliance-based storage. This 2-part webinar series discusses the role that SDS increasingly plays at the Kubernetes cluster layer and across multiple clouds in our modern hybrid cloud world.
With the agility to scale up or down incrementally (vs. fork-lift upgrades), the capability to be deployed on-premise or on hybrid cloud infrastructure, plus the cost benefits of running on industry standard servers, many enterprises are looking at SDS to move beyond their rigid, appliance-based storage silos.
A recent survey by Datacore Software Corp showed 56% of respondents planning to deploy or strongly considering SDS in the next 12 months. In this 2-part webinar series we’ll explore how moving from traditional appliance-based storage to SDS can help you better handle more modern application workloads.
Part 1 (technical): In the era of Kubernetes and containers agility, we’ll explore how SDS is complementing Kubernetes platforms in providing a common, agile abstraction layer above the physical infrastructure. We’ll also touch on the use of SDS in providing multicloud data services in hybrid cloud deployments.
Part 2 (business): While SDS can help build an elastic, scale-out storage infrastructure at a fraction of the cost of traditional appliances, many ask, "How do we get started?" This webinar will explore the business considerations when adopting SDS.
