"The performance, availability, and data protection associated with tier-1 applications were easy to meet when one application mapped to one server and a dedicated storage system. But to carry these features into a virtual world with pooled, shared storage systems and unpredictable workloads creates new demands.
In order to reach an agile state in your business, access this white paper now to gain insight into innovative solutions catered to these new challenging demands."
The following paper opens with the evolution of the Software-Defined Data Center and the challenges of heterogeneous storage silos in making the SDDC a reality. It continues by introducing EMC ViPR Software-Defined Storage and details how it enables enterprise IT departments and service providers to transform physical storage arrays into pools of virtual shared storage resources enable the delivery of innovative data services across arrays.
"Virtualization introduces new challenges for managing your data center. Applications now compete for shared resources such as storage, CPU cycles and memory, often causing performance bottlenecks and unhappy customers. This paper details 20 metrics that indicate when capacity issues are occurring and recommends a corresponding tool that will analyze the data and resolve your VM performance issues.

Simply put, software defined storage is the abstraction of storage services from storage hardware. This term is more than just marketing hype, it’s the logical evolution of storage virtualization from simply being a storage aggregator to the end goal of storage as a service. To achieve this goal, software defined storage needs a platform from which to centralize.
