Storage Wars: Object vs. File vs. Block
Research firm IDC projects that by the end of 2020, the world will generate 44 zettabytes (44 trillion gigabytes) of data per year. Data storage, therefore, is no longer simple, and in the age of cloud maturity and Digital Transformation, storage infrastructure strategies are shifting. With object stores having a very different set of characteristics than file and block storage, it can be confusing to know which is the right strategy that will keep up with an expanding digital universe.
