Block-Based Approaches in Software-Defined Storage

Block-Based Approaches in Software-Defined Storage

This IDC study provides IDC's assessment of different approaches to block-based data access software-defined storage platforms, an approach for storage solutions that leverages commodity components to create a highly scalable storage platform — all in software.

"Block-based software-defined platforms will continue to hold their own in the software-defined storage market. This growth will primarily be driven by a rich and diverse set of low latency use cases and virtualization and containerization deployments across multiple industries and geographies," says Ashish Nadkarni, research director for Storage Systems at IDC.
