Object storage is a method for storing millions of files and petabytes of data on storage nodes using a global namespace and file system. It is vastly more scalable than traditional file or block storage.
It is estimated within the next 7 years 80% of the worlds data will be stored on object storage.
Need additional disk capacity, just add another storage node. All object data is automatically distributed across the nodes, you can create object replicas or shard data (see below) across the nodes to aid recovery and increase performance.
Provides up to 75% cost savings compared to primary NAS filers whilst providing 100% business continuity.
Object storage requires 3 things to work.
Object storage uses metadata to manage the millions/billions of objects it contains. Metadata is created by the administrator of the object store and it contains information relating to each type of object it is storing e.g. a photo, metadata information.
