White Paper: Object Storage

Is Object Storage Right for Your Business?

Legacy data storage solutions come in a variety of forms, but many companies rely on on-premises network-attached storage (NAS) and/or storage area networks (SANs).  Unfortunately, the scale of data generation and storage today necessitates economies of scale that local network storage simply can’t provide.  As new solutions become available, optimized for today’s environments, many IT teams are reevaluating their strategy.  One data storage approach that makes particular sense for organizations looking to move their archived data to the cloud is object storage.  Object storage enables companies to manage growing storage needs while keeping costs in line.

This white paper addresses common questions, such as:

  • How do you balance the pros and cons between old and new storage models?
  • What are the benefits and drawbacks of each?
  • How can you determine if object storage is right for your business, and if it is, which type of solution to pursue?
