( has announced the addition of the "Global Software-defined Storage (SDS) Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.

The Global SDS market to grow at a CAGR of 35.2% over the period 2015-2019

SDS abstracts software services such as data management, data protection, placement of data, and I/O capabilities from the underlying storage infrastructure to increase the flexibility, scalability, and automation and to reduce the cost of enterprise storage. SDS is a component of SDDC and is gaining popularity among several enterprises worldwide. This technology enhances virtualization concepts such as resource pooling, abstraction, and automated management of the storage infrastructure. It offers support for legacy application, cloud services, and Big Data analytics.

Increased adoption of flash-based storage is one of the major trends emerging in the market. Storage systems that combine SSDs, HDDs, and flash-based caches are gaining popularity among enterprises. A key advantage of using SDS in flash-based storage is that it provides better suitability and platform independency to enterprises.

According to the report, SDS is one of the key components of SDDCs. SDS can be used in data center storage systems such as SAN, NAS, and DAS to create a shared pool of resources for user application access. Data centers that support on-premise and cloud-based environments are increasing steadily.

Further, the report states that complexities associated with data management are one of the major challenges that the market faces. The data management process has become increasingly complex in terms of data allocation, migration, reliability, compression, and replication.
