Evaluator Group Inc. announces a new research segment covering Object Storage. The segment is designed for IT end users to provide detailed information on defining and explaining the importance of Object Storage, what products are available, and how Object Storage can help IT increase efficiencies.
Evaluator Group has found that one of the most pressing problems that IT professionals are faced with today is the growing amount of data they are being required to handle. This data is coming from three general categories: information from ongoing operations that continues to increase, non-traditional sources of data (including sensor data, social media data, etc.), and data from applications developed to use multi-media and drive large storage capacity needs.
“As our analysts have found, addressing the problem of the vast amount of new data types and its explosion requires the ability to scale with capacity, scale with performance in parallel and manage such that capacity represents nominal additional costs,” said Camberley Bates, managing director at Evaluator Group. “We have found that Object Storage is the technology that IT professionals need to solve this problem.”
There is a diverse set of technology approaches for Object Storage addressing ever increasing variety of use cases. This independent research explains the new generation of approaches, reviews the usage areas which apply to cloud services or on-premise implementations and defines the critical characteristics users need to consider when evaluating options.
