Enterprise Storage, as-a-Service: What You Need to Know


We’ve all heard about the recent shift from hardware-defined storage to software-defined storage, but what do we really know about it? 



The storage industry is changing as we know it.

We’ve all heard about the recent shift from hardware-defined storage to software-defined storage, but what do we really know about it? Everything has changed; the roles, the environments, the dynamics -everything. The market is moving at a faster pace, and everyone is redefining themselves to try to catch up.

The biggest noticeable difference is the shift in spending from a CapEx to OpEx model. Studies show that storage budgets have decreased significantly over the last 4 years, and because of this, many companies are delaying their refresh cycles. That’s because most departments don’t have the large cash available to purchase new equipment. The traditional CapEx business model is outdated and these companies are looking for the next best thing. What is the next best thing?
