Within cloud computing
IBM Cloud Object Storage offers a comprehensive object storage platform with technology innovation at its core.
Information dispersal technology encrypts, expands, slices and disperses data.
Slices are distributed to separate disks and commodity hardware across geographic locations.
Real-time, bit-perfect data is highly available and can be retrieved with a subset of slices—even with individual servers or entire sites down.
In this webcast, developer Jason Resch discusses the Information Dispersal Algorithm and its application in developing storage of unprecedented scale.
