3 Key Differences Between Hyperconverged Infrastructure and Software-Defined Storage

DataCore 0
So before we get into the difference between these two IT solutions, how about let’s start off with the definitions, shall we? Software-defined storage (SDS) is the abstracting of the physical storage from the controlling software. In other words, you can use one software to control multiple and often times, disparate hardware vendor storage solutions […]
