What is Object Storage?
Object storage is designed to be massively scalable and as such is fundamentally different from traditional block or file storage systems. Object storage organizes information into containers of flexible sizes, referred to as objects. Each object includes the data itself as well as its associated metadata and has a globally unique identifier, instead of a file name and a file path. These unique identifiers are arranged in a flat address space, which removes the complexity and scalability challenges of a hierarchical file system based on complex file paths.
7 Reasons to Use Object Storage?
Unstructured data is growing exponentially year after year with the advanced capabilities of modern devices. These devices generate mass quantities of emails, images and audio and video files. Growing pools of unstructured data become difficult to organize, manage and search. This is where object storage comes in. Object storage is ideal for organizing, managing and searching through high volumes (200 TB+) of diverse and unstructured data. Object storage platforms also give companies the ability to start making sense of the big data they have at hand and extract insights that aid in the development of business goals.
