    Escaping Hidden Software Defined Storage Gotchas while Exploiting its Benefits
    Marc Staimer, Senior Anlayst, Dragon Slayer Consulting Recorded: Sep 22 2016 42 mins
    Attendees will learn what software defined storage (SDS) is and is not, as well as the different SDS variations. There will be an in-depth discussion about the strengths and weaknesses of each SDS variation including, but not limited to:

    • Hypervisor based SDS
    • Virtual storage appliances (VSA) SDS
    • Storage controller based SDS
    • Scale-out object/file/block storage SDS

    The common hidden gotchas for all of these will be revealed along with pragmatic practical ways to avoid them - while optimizing the benefits received from SDS regardless of SDS variation or vendor.

    We will also be hosting a 15 minute break out session at the end of the webinar via GoToMeeting. Instructions on how to attend this will be provided.
