Large Datacenter customers are known as Hyperscalers. Nearly all of these customers build their own storage systems using Software Defined Storage (SDS) and commodity components, assembled in racks. Managing this large pool of commodity components has proved challenging and several issues have been identified that could be addressed by new features on these storage components. This paper discusses these requirements and how existing standards and proposed changes to standards might address them.
