The paper considers software-defined storages, their essential requirements, features, as well as advantages and disadvantages of solutions by the different vendors. The most widely spread OpenSource products used to build software-defined storages are analysed. An example of functioning software-defined storage based on non-commercial software Gluster and decommissioned hardware is given. The paper describes storage architecture which provides the reliable storing of information with minimal costs incurred.
