DescriptionFor decades, storage and networking architectures have been designed according to the limitations of the other as either one or the other would always be the cause of a bottleneck. For instance, switching from HDD to SSD improved storage performance but the network wasn't able to keep up. Developments in network speed (Ethernet - Fibre Channel - Infiniband) on the other hand, required faster SSDs and new protocols such as NVMe-based SSDs. The industry has now reached a point where this too and fro is no longer necessary as new, software-defined architectures are designed in such a way that storage and networking can fully leverage each other's innovation.
