The software enabling a software-defined storage environment provides policy management for feature options such as deduplication, replication, thin provisioning, snapshots and backup. By definition, SDS software is separate from hardware it is managing. That hardware may or may not have abstraction, pooling, or automation software embedded. This philosophical span has made it difficult to categorize. If it can be used as software on commodity servers with disks, it suggests software such as a file system.
