Would it be great if your enterprise storage had cloud-like advantages such as a degree of hardware independence, scalability, and better resource utilisation in compute and storage? Embracing a plan-and pay-as-you-go system allows solution architects the advantage of designing a storage infrastructure that accommodates an enterprise’s needs.
Planning for hardware and accompanying software, in a scalable yet cost-efficient manner, can be a challenging process for decision makers. Also, architects will have to analyse how the addition of new layers of abstraction to the infrastructure will work and bring a new set of functionalities.
So, to provide a solid foundation with distinct storage and compute environments, it is essential to have a Software-Defined Storage reference architecture. The reference architecture assures outstanding performance and smooth scale up to accommodate evolving business needs.
The benefits of infusing storage requirements in the planning phase will help in:
- Optimising the data accessibility
- Speed-up deployment of infrastructure
- Minimize the risk involved in adopting new technologies
