Thanks for your post !

Do you really think that the inevitability of containers and microservices open the way to storage as a service ? I'm not sure for that...

Thanks for your comment, Psychologue324.
Thanks for your comment. In our view there is strong demand for storage as a service for its promise of lower cost and better operational efficiency. That vision is possible through the continuum of innovation in the underlying technologies that enable it. Containers and microservices are one such enabling technology and, to your point, are by no means the only one contributing towards that vision. In the future we expect to see a lot more enterprise software delivered and deployed via containers - software that is today delivered as stand alone ISO images. Based on customer feedback and analyst opinion, we expect that serving out storage (as a service) through containers will be a key use case for software defined storage in particular and for enterprise storage in general.
