Inside IT: Software Defined Storage at Intel
IT Best Practices: Episode 93 – Previously in this podcast series we discussed Intel IT’s Software Defined Infrastructure strategy. SDI consists of three major components – Software Defined Computer, Software Defined Network, and the topic of this podcast, Software Defined Storage, or SDS. The strategic goal of SDS is to move from an expensive proprietary storage solution to a reliable and manageable commodity storage solution. In this installment of Inside IT we hear from Vipul Lal, Senior Principal Engineer, and Raju Nallapa, Principal Engineer, both with the Data Center Infrastructure Group in Intel IT. We’ll hear what steps Intel is taking to make this transition, how Intel IT plans to accommodate the different storage needs within the organization, and what evolution Lal and Nallapa expect in SDS in the next two or three years.
