SlideShare: Sizing Up Object Storage for the Enterprise

Object Storage promises many things – unlimited scalability, both in terms of capacity and file count, low cost but highly redundant capacity and excellent connectivity to legacy NAS. But, despite these promises object storage has not caught on in the enterprise like it has in the cloud. It seems like, for the enterprise object storage just isn’t a good fit. The problem is that most object storage system’s starting capacity is too large. And while connectivity to legacy NAS systems is available, seamless integration is not. Can object storage be sized so that it is a better fit for the enterprise?

Join Storage Switzerland and Avere Systems for this on demand webinar “Sizing up Object Storage for the Enterprise“. Our goal is to show IT professionals how object storage can be tailored to suit the realities of the traditional enterprise. With the right fit, they can fully realize all the benefits object storage has to offer without adding complexity or wasting time.

In this webinar we discuss:

  • Why Object Storage Should be Ideal for the Enterprise (not just Cloud Providers)
  • Why Object Storage has not been a good fit for the Enterprise
  • How Object Storage Vendors are Trying (and failing) to make it fit better
  • How to make Object Storage a perfect fit for the Enterprise
