Storage is being recast as a set of services implemented in software with industry standard servers, allowing a radical simplification of provisioning and management at a significantly lower cost. At the same time, there are significant changes in flash, memory and server hardware architecture that software can take advantage of.

In this talk, we'll survey and contrast the popular software architectural approaches and investigate the changing hardware architectures upon which these systems are built.

Finally, we'll survey the new applications data services that are becoming main-stream for container and big-data environments.
