How Object Storage Tackles Thorny Exascale Problems
Traditional storage-area network (SAN), network-attached storage (NAS), and unified-storage systems are not designed to deal with exascale problems. In fact, most are barely capable of managing low levels of petascale problems.
Fortunately, this research report details the exascale problems for IT pros and decision makers and how four different object-storage software products go about solving them. In addition to an overview of both open-source and commercial products, this analysis also includes information about:
- Decreasing data resilience
- Limited data durability
- Rapidly expanding infrastructure
- Geometric growth power and cooling
- And more!
