With object storage, data is accessed using a unique identifier and a flat data structure that enables massively scalable storage. With software-defined storage, vast content repositories can be built and accessed via HTTP or an API for quick retrieval. Object storage is perfect for many scale-out use cases including:
• On-premise, large-scale content repository, backup, active archives and unstructured data stores.
• Storage-as-a-service in dedicated private cloud, public cloud, or hybrid cloud, implementations.
• Hybrid cloud deployments, to make it easier to scale, respond and right-size data deployments.
