Software-Defined Storage (SDS) is a software layer that manages storage infrastructure. Software developers have the flexibility to use a variety of hardware, such as processors, network cards, and hard drives with their storage managing software to develop their own SDS solutions.

Employees are becoming mobile. They want flexibility of working from any device, anywhere, anytime, with any data, without any compromise in the quality due to access, latency or visualization.
