Unlike traditional approaches to storage, SDS was designed explicitly to support the diversity, virtualization and self-service that define the modern enterprise data center.

Lets understand how Software-Defined Storage (SDS) enables continuity of operations:
Tyrone Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) allows the convergence of physical storage onto industry-standard x86 servers, enabling a building block approach with scale-out capabilities.
