Object Storage is more than just a storage system for cloud providers. In the modern enterprise it can be an ideal back-end for the various primary tiers enterprises can install today. Beyond the cost savings object storage provides, there is also a simplification of management, and the leveraging of object storage to eliminate all other forms of secondary storage. The key is to create a connection between object storage and primary storage so data transparently moves between these tiers based on policy or by user access.
In this StorageShort, Storage Switzerland Lead Analyst George Crump and Avere Senior Director of Product Management and Marketing Jeff Tabor discuss the connection of how object storage can be connected to primary storage. For an in-depth discussion about all the ways object storage can benefit enterprise organizations, tune in to our webinar “Sizing Up Object Storage for the Enterprise.”
