SlideShare: NAS vs. Object Storage: 10 Reasons Why Object Storage Will Win

Network Attached Storage (NAS) systems and file servers were the foundation of collaboration in the 90’s. These storage systems primarily served the needs of users that needed to share files for projects. In the 2000’s NAS systems found a lease on life by providing storage to virtualized environments like VMware and Xen. But in 2016 the NAS is showing its age. The primary creator of data is now sensors and devices. These machine-generated data capacity requirements far outstrips human capabilities. In addition, users are different in 2016. They are mobile and have more than one system they use to get work done.

A challenger to NAS is object storage, which promises more cost effective scaling while maintaining more consistent performance. And now object storage has addressed many of its roadblocks; providing traditional file protocol access and improved file handling performance. Your next NAS refresh might be to an object storage system.

Join Storage Switzerland’s Founder George Crump and Caringo’s VP of Products Tony Barbagallo for this on demand webinar. They compare NAS and object storage and provide 10 reasons why we think object storage will be the file server of the future for the enterprise. This webinar will give you the education you need to determine if your enterprise can benefit from object storage.
