While establishing a private or hybrid cloud environment has become commonplace, getting it right isn’t always as easy as it first seems. While the benefits of a private cloud fit well into many organizations, cloud storage is not the same old task of provisioning LUNs from storage arrays, this is a very different beast.
Any storage vendor will tell you they’re cloud-capable, cloud-ready, or built-for-the-cloud. Given the wide variety of architectural approaches and even wider variety of technical choices made by these vendors, that begs the question: what does cloud-enabling storage really look like?
