    • ESG Brief: Software-defined Architecture - The Foundation of IT Infrastructure Transformation

      ESG Brief: Software-defined Architecture - The Foundation of IT Infrastructure Transformation

      Software-defined storage promised freedom from hardware lock-in. It has delivered, in part, on that promise. However, procuring enterprise storage technology as software separate from hardware creates new complexities. When IT organizations are aiming to add infrastructure agility and flexibility, the architecture becomes more important than the delivery model.
