Software-defined Storage from an SDN Perspective
Grand Ballroom B
This tutorial will provide technical background on the (often-vague) concept of software-defined storage (SDS). The technical contribution of this tutorial is around a definition of SDS that builds on recent work in network systems and applies it to storage. This work includes basic concepts such as classification, routing and forwarding, and the separation of control, and data planes. Surprisingly, these basic concepts do not apply well to the storage stack today, making it difficult to enforce end-to-end storage policies.
There will be a short, hands-on exercise that requires Windows 8.1.
