Global Software Defined Storage Market- Insights
Software-defined storage (SDS) is a marketing term for computer data storage software that defines policy-based provisioning and management of data storage. The process does not depend on the underlying hardware and includes a form of storage virtualization to separate the storage hardware from the software that manages it. A software-defined storage environment may also provide policy management for features such as data deduplication, replication, thin provisioning, snapshots and backup. Software-defined storage may be implemented via appliances over a conventional Storage Area Network (SAN), or implemented as Network-Attached Storage (NAS), or using object-based storage. SDS offers benefits such as improved system performance, web facilitation, and reducing maintenance cost, that have increased demand for SDS. Furthermore, increasing in data pool is major factor contributing to growth of the market. According to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, around 2.6 Quintillion bytes of data is generated each day worldwide.
