Meet today’s biggest IT challenges with Software Defined Storage

Posted: 17 February 2016 By: Emma Shipley Categories:

Today’s IT Teams are under increasing pressure to deliver services more quickly and with smaller budgets – meeting the demands of a new style of digitally-advanced, data-driven business that can stay competitive in today’s fast-paced market. Software-Defined-Storage (SDS) addresses this challenge by enabling organisations to create an open pool of shared storage capacity from whatever standards-based hardware they currently have, or choose to acquire in the future, using any hypervisor – avoiding the need to ‘rip and replace’ or result in vendor lock-in. 

By separating hardware and data services from storage management, SDS optimises resources, simplifies management and reduces costs.  Standards-based APIs drive orchestration between storage resources and the rest of the IT environment, resulting in:

  • 80% lower capital investment
  • 50% less footprint
  • 60% lower energy costs

HPE is the only storage provider with an open SDS solution that can be easily deployed and expanded to grow in line with customer demands.  Even SMBs on a limited budget can benefit from an enterprise-class storage solution that will help them to maximise the ROI they drive from server virtualisation.
