IDC believes that software-defined storage (SDS) continues to transform IT deployment and consumption of storage resources. For enterprises, SDS is really an on-ramp to deploying a hybrid cloud — one that allows a metered on-demand consumption of private and public cloud resources. Deploying SDS therefore is not a question of "if" but a question of "when." IDC's August 2015 Software - Defined Infrastructure Survey found that 75% of enterprises have deployed or are considering deploying some form of SDS in their environment. For such enterprises, the question of "why" is adequately clarified. In fact, IDC found that 61% of enterprises that deployed SDS have realized tangible benefits such as reduction in capex/opex costs, ease of management, reduction in provisioning time, and peace of mind knowing that they are no longer locked into a single vendor solution.
