Linear scaling with legacy storage appliances is no longer an option. The burden that traditional architecture feels from today's tsunami of data is surpassed only by the cost required to meet current and future demands. Aside from the huge expense, this method of increasing storage capacity would take too long. Even adding multiple servers could not accommodate storage demands. Vertical storage architecture contains bottlenecks that slow performance to an unacceptable level. Software-defined storage (SDS) scales horizontally instead, making it a popular option.

Over the last few years, organizations have shifted from using virtual data centers to creating private or hybrid IaaS clouds that allow authorized users to perform self-service provisioning of virtual machines. These environments have reduced administrative workloads, improved the user experience, and discouraged shadow IT, but they have also brought their own challenges. As virtualized environments increase in scale, management techniques have often become far less effective, making it difficult to keep track of virtual machines, their owners, and why the virtual machines were created in the first place.
