Software defined storage is a relatively new concept in
the computing and storage industry and can refer to many different technologies and implementations. It is part of a larger industry trend that includes software defined networking (SDN) and software defined data centers (SDDC). This chapter explains exactly what software defined storage is.

At its most basic level, software defined storage is enterprise class storage that uses standard hardware with all the important storage and management functions performed in intelligent software. It delivers automated, policy-driven, application-aware storage services through orchestration of the underlining storage infrastructure in support of an overall software defined environment.

Enterprises today are recognizing many significant benefits of this storage in their data centers. These include increased flexibility, automated management, cost efficiency, and limitless scalability.
