The term software-defined storage (SDS) is commonly used in the industry today. When QStar Technologies was developing the first archiving and data management storage systems software over 30 years ago, it had not yet been coined. QStar software solutions are totally independent of the underlying hardware and runs on commodity servers with Intel x86 processors and delivers massive cost savings and flexibility compared with traditional storage systems.
