Why choose HP for software-defined storage?
The power of Software-Defined Storage (SDS) is the value it brings through maximum cost-optimization, flexibility, and opportunities for orchestration across the software-defined data center (SDDC). SDS allows organizations to create an open pool of shared storage capacity from whatever standards-based hardware it currently has (or will acquire) then use standards-based APIs to drive orchestration between storage resources and other aspects of the data center.
HP has been a player in Software-Defined Storage and the Software-Defined Data Center since inception and the only vendor capable of delivering on all elements of the software-defined data center —compute, networking, storage and management—offering a complete SDS strategy and vision based on simplicity, efficiency, and openness that makes storage availability a top priority.
