Connecting The Dots

OpenSDS is software-defined storage control, connecting enterprise, commodity, and cloud storage to cloud native and traditional IT environments.

What is OpenSDS?

OpenSDS is an open source community working to address storage integration challenges, particularly in scale-out cloud native environments with heterogeneous storage platforms.

OpenSDS Goals

Open
Standardized open software, services, and application framework
  • No vendor lock-in
  • Not under the control of a single or small group of companies
  • Accelerate development with shared components

Real
Designed for real world use with requirements from real end-users
  • Solve common end-user pain points
  • Optimize storage operations and utilization
  • Deploy in traditional or cloud-native environments

Ready
Enable an ecosystem of ‘OpenSDS Ready’ suppliers
  • Mix and match ‘OpenSDS Ready’ hardware, software, UI, services, and apps
  • Hit the ground running with new projects

Stuffs We Are Developing

Storage Orchestration
Policy-based storage orchestration for data protection, replication, lifecycle, tiering and migration

Storage Intelligence
Standardized storage metrics for monitoring, analytics and machine learning

Storage Multi-Cloud
Single multi-cloud control with policies for data storage on premise and in different public clouds

Work In Progress

SUSHI

The Northbound Plug-ins Project

Common plug-ins to enable OpenSDS storage services for cloud and application frameworks

HOTPOT
