Software Defined Storage (SDS) enables users and organizations to uncouple or abstract storage resources from the underlying hardware platform for greater flexibility, efficiency and faster scalability by making storage resources programmable. Instead of having to purchase separate hardware for every storage use case, Software Defined Storage enables an organization to share physical storage with others through a storage provider, or to share storage among its own uses and functions within the organization itself. This approach enables more efficient use of storage resources and enables storage resources to be an integral part of a larger software-designed data center (SDDC) architecture.
Organizations that need to scale with the huge surge in data growth are turning to SDS. The strong growth in next-generation workloads like Big Data and Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and the Internet of Things will help drive strong revenue growth in the software-defined storage market. SDS is gaining traction because it meets the demands of the next-generation data center and more data centric organizations much better than legacy storage infrastructure. The growth of Hyperconverged infrastructure will continue to buoy related sales of Software Defined Storage equipment.
Market research firms have defined the Software Defined Market in very different ways resulting in high disagreement on market size and growth. This has made estimates for the Software Defined Storage market segment vary across research firms. However, there is a consensus that SDS hosted on Hyperconverged storage systems will lead the market growth. For further research, T4 recommends exploring and evaluating all available sources.
