The storage market has come a long way in terms of understanding object-based storage (OBS) technology and actively adopting it. The OBS landscape now sees a standardization and integration of the Amazon S3 and OpenStack Swift API, an emphasis on computing paradigms such as containers, native support for file interfaces, and a focus on vertical/use case–centric solution offerings. Many OBS solutions offer a scale-out file system that integrates with an independent but underlying OBS platform. These advancements have opened the doors for OBS so as to cater to a wide range of use cases beyond backup and archive.
