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.
