High-performance object storage challenges in the modern data center

“One of the most interesting aspects of object storage is its diversity of uses. While object storage is often used as an archive storage area, a destination for old data and a replacement for production file servers, in reality there are many ways it can be applied. As vendors begin to deliver performance-optimized object storage, the technology is ready for a whole new set of workloads.” – says George Crump from TechTarget.
