DCIG is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the 2022-23 DCIG TOP 5 On-Premises SDS Object Storage report. This report provides guidance on TOP 5 solutions organizations should consider for SDS-based object storage solutions for on-premises deployment.
All organizations need to face an unpleasant truth: It is not a question of “If” they will experience a ransomware attack; it is a matter of “When.” While cybersecurity software serves as a first-line defense against ransomware, IT leaders recognize cybersecurity software alone does not thwart all ransomware attacks. And as an assumption an attack may succeed, these leaders also recognize they must protect their production and backup data. Immutable storage can help.
Object storage used to be just the slow final resting place for archive data. That is no longer true. As enterprises shift to cloud-native technologies, object storage is often used for active data. With the growing importance of object storage in the enterprise, and the trend toward software-defined storage solutions, organizations would do well to pay special attention to the data security and data protection features of SDS object storage solutions.
DCIG is expanding its software-defined storage (SDS) research to include object and universal storage solutions. It invites solution providers to participate in the survey research taking place through June 2021. DCIG will publish results beginning in the 3rd quarter. These DCIG TOP 5 reports help IT decision-makers save valuable time through a succinct analysis of available solutions.
Cloud storage initially emerged to provide organizations with access to simple storage services (S3). The more organizations adopted S3 object storage, the more storage choices they requested of those who provided it. However, all these choices had unexpected side effects. Simple storage services became increasingly complex and costly to manage. To put the simple back in simple storage service, here are two recommendations for organizations to follow.
Organizations struggle with managing expanding volumes of unstructured data. Storing, protecting, and providing secure access to this data creates challenges around cost, complexity, and scalability. A new generation of software-defined storage (SDS) products offer solutions to these challenges.
The use cases for object storage continue to expand. Organizations generate and capture expanding amounts of data and deploy new applications that process that data to generate new business value. To meet these new demands, object storage solutions must deliver both economical capacity and high performance.
