5 advantages of SDS over Traditional All-Flash SAN Array

  2. 2. Software defined software adoption is growing, which puts the spotlight on the costs of SDS. One of the major drivers for adoption of SDS is cost savings. Ideally, SDS enables lower storage costs by reducing capital expenditures and sharply reducing operational costs over proprietary SAN and NAS.
  3. 3. One of the main advantages of a best-of-breed SDS solution is that it is versatile and can adapt to your needs, use case and circumstances. For example: if you have 10 data centers around the world, each with its unique outlay, power density requirements, scale, type of customers – you name it – SDS can be easily tailored to fit in. In this way, companies can have a powerful and reliable IT infrastructure layer, yet will not have to apply a one-fits-all approach. This will bring cost savings and simplify management, as regardless of where the datacenter is in the world – you can consolidate on one storage platform to power your entire business.

  4. 4. By using SDS companies can save to a different extent, depending on their starting position and end goals. For example, if a company refreshes an IT system, built entirely by a two- or three-letter vendors, with a new-age SDS-powered system – the cost savings will be significant. In other cases cost savings might be lower or on par with existing state. In this case the customer will get a much more capable and future-proof cloud, with all other advantages this brings.

  5. 5. SDS are designed with PB+ scale in mind. Hardware is there to provide the platform to make it all happen, but data was at the center – not hardware and its limitations. As a result, SDS solutions cover a very wide range of capacity – from 5 TB to 2 PB or more. This is a range, which would usually be covered by several product families of a traditional SAN or all-flash array vendors. With the best SDS solutions companies not only can start small, but they can grow as the need comes, without any interruptions, downtime or migrations of the workloads which run on the storage platform.

  6. 6. The zero “vendor lock-in” concept is nice but close to impossible to achieve. In the end, customers always have soft or sometimes very hard lock-in to a given technology, IT stack or even staff competence. However with SDS companies are much closer to “no vendor lock-in”. Customers can: Use all standard hardware, which is inexpensive and easy to procure. Customers can change hardware platforms at wish, without complex and risky data migrations, as the data lives in the software layer, and is abstracted from hardware.

  7. 7. Another TCO consideration is that IT can afford more storage capacity with commodity storage, even with enterprise-grade hardware.  For example, a new SAN with 22TB of raw data can easily cost $60,000. If you save that money and buy SDS and on commodity storage, you get high performance/high capacity storage nodes with a third to double as much raw data -- at a lower cost.
