GigaOm Radar for High-Performance Object Storage
This resource is published by Pure Storage
For quite some time, users have been asking for object storage solutions with better performance characteristics. To satisfy such requests, several factors must first be considered:
- Data consolidation
- New workloads and applications
- Better economics at scale
A growing number of applications find object storage to be a natural repository for their data because of its scalability and ease of access. However, older object stores were not designed for flash memory, nor were they optimized to deal with very small files (512KB and less).
Many vendors are redesigning the backend of their solution to respond to these new needs, but in the meantime, a new generation of fast object stores has become available for these workloads.
This GigaOm report is one of a series of documents that helps IT organizations assess competing solutions in the context of well-defined features and criteria.
