A recent report of IDC features StorPool Storage as a leading innovator on the distributed storage market. The study covers European software-defined storage (SDS) solutions for service providers. It recognizes some of the most innovative companies in the field.
SDS succeeds enterprise storage systems and service provider storage solutions
The IDC Innovators study proves that SDS is already an appealing technology for Service Providers. It offers infrastructure automation, extreme level of scalability and reliability on a lower cost. European SPs evaluate software-defined, cloud-ready storage services, which will allow them to offer IT as a service (ITaaS) from behind their own firewalls and data center networks. Furthermore this gives them strong control over data governance. As well as the security that they meet the regulatory compliance (GDPR).
If we have to summarize we can say that SDS became the storage for the cloud.
