Software Defined Storage
The software-defined enterprise is a key industry trend, and there's an evolution going on related to how companies are deploying enterprise infrastructures in the future. IT is evolving to a software-defined solution in which the server is at the center of the infrastructure.
Software-defined storage pulls the kinds of storage services performed by typical storage hardware, including such functions as de-duplication, replication, snapshots and thin provisioning, out of the hardware and into a software layer which can then be deployed on top of industry-standard server hardware.
Software-Defined storage solution provides virtualization and cloud-optimized storage solution software for various hardware platforms. The company offers a Software-Defined Storage (SDS) platform providing file and block storage services for enterprise applications. It also allows clients to transform their storage infrastructure.
Award-winning SDS solution is a key building block of the Software-Defined Data Center and one that is helping companies' transition away from massively expensive storage systems and try to do is abstract storage technology from the hardware and software, and make it into a true virtualized environment. Fastblaze is making sure it's ready for the next wave.
The software runs on commodity hardware and creates resilient storage pools consisting of multiple hard disk drives and solid-state drives. Data can be organized in a flexible number of filesystems and block storage, and files can be accessed over the widely used NFS and CIFS protocols, while block storage uses iSCSI or Fibre Channel.
