I thought it fitting that I close out this series on software-defined storage with a bit of practical advice for those of you who are intrigued — and motivated — to move in this direction.
To be transparent, it would be inaccurate for me to say that there’s a landslide of significant SDS deployments to date. Yet interest is very, very high.
That’s to be expected: I remember the early days of cloud, big data, etc. All were once exotic concepts, but all are quite mainstream today.
And I’ve met enough architects who have that gleam in their eye to be encouraged :)
