Software Defined Storage (SDS) is a rapidly evolving data storage paradigm that enables the use of commodity hardware by ensuring that the policy based provisioning and management software is independent of the underlying hardware. Typical SDS architecture segregates Data Services and Service Management interfaces with a focus on Virtualized Data Path (with Block, File, Object, HDFS/Hadoop access), Scalability (hyper converged and/or hyper scale), Management APIs (provisioning, management, maintenance of storage devices and services) and Automation.
