451 Research: Addressing the Changing Role of Unstructured Data With Object Storage

451 Research Survey on Object Storage

Published January 2019


The storage industry as a whole has evolved dramatically over the last two decades, but it’s an evolution that mainly occurs behind the scenes. Storage management tasks that used to require extreme specialization, hours of work and a certain amount of risk are now simplified or automated, and the old idea of storage as a blind repository is no longer realistic. The next stage in storage evolution has to move beyond the simple nuts and bolts of storing data. It should focus on leveraging the information that data contains and contributing value through visibility, control and automation, regardless of where that data physically resides. We can no longer afford ‘dumb’ storage, and object storage currently offers the only model capable of bringing storage to the next level.
