Extremely informative post, Chuck.
I have been doing some reading about SDS ad SDDC for quite sometime now, and found few of the industry experts predicting that SDS might soon fizzle out as the space lacks innovation. Of all the components in SDDC - SDS might not go too far in race with the counter part SDN.
How do you see this?

Software Defined Storage provides storage of data for you on cloud server to secure and store data. This provides virtual storage space and proved very effective and easy to access. It is an effective way for business companies to as they require large storing space and secure servers. As long as the key attributes of the SDS definition are satisfied, I would argue that -- regardless of specific technology -- you’re moving in the right direction.
