Software Defined Storage

What is Software Defined Storage?

Software-defined storage (SDS) is an approach to data storage in which software controls storage-related tasks and is decoupled from physical storage hardware, allowing for the use of commodity hardware.

Purity Operating Environment from Pure Storage offers advanced services to help you capture the benefits of software-defined storage. Purity benefits include: industry-leading data reduction, Tier 1 resiliency with zero performance loss, built-in disaster recovery and protection, global flash management, and more. Purity was designed around a variable block size, with the realization that IO is variable size on all arrays, especially in mixed and virtualized environments.
