Object storage and the unstructured data deluge: Your full guide

With data growth increasing at an accelerating rate, organizations need more data storage capacity, more quickly and on a more regular basis than ever before. But this trend creates two primary challenges: It can be hard to grow storage capacity in a non-disruptive way, and traditional systems often struggle to scale beyond a certain point.  

Unstructured data growth, meet object storage. This expert resource serves as your full guide to object storage implementation, with cloud workload, sync-and-share, API-accessible storage, and more use cases examined.

Download now to gain full access, learning how object storage maintains the unstructured data deluge, and view an object vs. file vs. block bake off.

  • Jargon buster guide to hybrid cloud storage

    Use of the cloud as a location for off-site compute and storage has reached a new maturity.

    Compute instances and storage in the cloud are now serious options for organisations that need to burst workloads beyond their own datacentre capacity at busy times.

    And increasingly, seamless hybrid cloud operations are made possible by file and object storage platforms that allow customers a single view and to migrate workloads and data between their own datacentres and those of cloud providers.

    In this Jargon Buster guide we bring you definitions for the key concepts in hybrid cloud storage plus in-depth articles on hybrid cloud file and object storage, how to use the cloud as a storage tier and the key decision points when it comes to private cloud vs hybrid cloud.
