About this talk

Object-based storage systems are fast becoming one of the key building blocks for a cloud storage infrastructure addressing shortcomings of traditional file- and block-based storage for unstructured data. Object storage systems are helping organizations gain much-needed control over managing the tremendous growth of unstructured data. An object storage system design must accommodate growth, flexible provisioning, support multiple geographies, and cope with failure. How the data on these systems is organized and managed is key to performance and SLAs. In this Webcast, experts from the SNIA Cloud Storage Initiative will discuss: • The Evolution of Data Placement • Design Considerations • Pros and Cons of Hash Tables and Key-Value Databases • And more Register now! This live Webcast will take an unbiased, deep dive into design considerations for an object storage architecture.
