Did you want a side of SLBS with your software or hardware FUD? (BD2017)

IT Toolbox

Simple, on the one hand, there is no such thing as software that does not need hardware somewhere in the stack. Whats the issue with SLBS?

Transforming IT from Monolithic Hardware Oriented to Mosaic Software Driven

Future of CIO

IT leaders should make an objective assessment: What’s the focal point of IT- the monolithic hardware oriented, or the bits & bytes information driven? Digital IT shifts from a monolithic hardware oriented support center to a mosaic information-driven "digital brain": Traditional IT organizations are perceived as an isolated function with monolithic hardware boxes, tangled wires, surrounding with IT staff stereotyped as geeks who speak a different language and lack of business acumen.

Hardware In An Era Of Software-Defined Storage

Chuck's Blog - EMC

While many of us are enamored by the vision of a software-defined data center (SDDC), we also know that hardware will still be a very important consideration: how much, how efficient, how fast, etc. And it''s hard to have a meaningful point-of-view on SDS unless you also have a clear point-of-view on the hardware it will inevitably use. Hardware Matters.  But for the purposes of our software-defined storage model, it’s not a relevant distinction.
