Object Storage Vs. Traditional Storage: Expert Comparison
Object storage systems are becoming a viable alternative to scale-out network-attached storage (scale-out NAS) because of their unlimited scalability, lower emphasis on processing and high-capacity networks, access via internet protocols rather than storage commands, custom metadata and off-the-shelf component-compatibility. Where we used to see a file or block-based system, we now see an object storage system, and this is especially true when talking about public and private cloud storage.
In this expert e-guide, Director of Business Systems at Cavium Networks, Jacob N. Gsoedl provides an in-depth explanation of how object-based storage systems work and how they’ve become the fundamental building blocks of a cloud storage infrastructure.
