Storage Versatility with SDS 

HPE offers a complete range of Software defined Storage solutions which work on HPE Proliant Servers - to provide a cost optimized, high performance storage solutions for all your cloud application needs.

SDS enables IT to provide multiple volume types, which differ in performance characteristics and cost points, so that you can tailor your storage performance and cost to the needs of your applications. These volumes types fall into following categories:

1. SSD-backed volumes optimized for transactional workloads involving frequent read/write operations with small I/O size, where the dominant performance attribute is IOPS.
Ex: vSAN, Storage Spaces Direct

2. A mix of SSD & HDD-backed volumes optimized for large streaming workloads where throughput (measured in MiB/s) is a better performance measure than IOPS.
Ex: vSAN, Storage Spaces Direct

3. A mix of SSD & HDD-backed volumes optimized for storing file systems which provides simple, scalable file storage for your cloud apps. Build an elastic storage capacity with scalable file systems, so your applications have the storage they need, when they need it.
Ex: Lusture File System

4. HDD-backed Object storage optimized to securely collect, store, and analyze their data at a massive scale, to store and retrieve any amount of data from anywhere over Internet.
Ex: Scality Ring Object Store

Software Defined Security

 In the virtual world an organization might have thousands of virtual machines... The organization cannot manage them manually. That's where the Software Defined Security comes handy. Applying security policy uniformly and automatically in all environments.
 With runtime virtualization, different containers/VMs can reside together in the same cloud infrastructure – and have different security protections. Each application can have a different security profile. A software bases security solutions helps automate secure deployments in clouds and allow for customization of protection across different applications

 In a hybrid cloud environments, applications can span across multiple clouds – and yet have an uniform security settings and responses. Automate responses to security events to minimize damages and increase vigilance with automated monitoring.
