RAID vs Object Storage: What Is Best For Your Data Integrity?

Presented by

Jaap Van Kleef, Kevin Rasdale and Florian Malecki

About this talk

When RAID was proposed in the 1980’s, it was designed to fit within the limits of available technology: flash memory had not yet been invented, and applications were seriously limited in terms of storage performance. Today, traditional RAID concepts are out of touch with modern storage architectures, placing serious limits on performance, efficiency, flexibility and scalability. Modern storage solutions are moving “post-RAID” with advanced data protection and layout strategies, by treating treats files as objects in a data store rather than blocks on disk. In this presentation, you will learn about the key differences between RAID and object based storage that offers better performance, more flexibility, greater capacity utilization, and increased data protection without the high price tag.
