environment

Environment

?

A storage solution can be deployed over an environment which is or not completely controlled by a single entity e.g a company.

scalability

Scalability

?

The ability to scale out heteroegeneously allows for more diverse storage deployments.

homogeneous heterogeneous
redundancy

Redundancy

?

Different redundancy mechanisms can be provided, each with its tradeoffs.

replication erasure codes replication
fault-tolerance

Fault Tolerance

?

The ability to maintain a storage system operational requires being able to cope with "unexpected" behaviors.

standard
security

Security

?

A secure storage system must be designed with encrypted communications, access control etc. from the ground up.
