The Store segment of the BaM Content Chain® covers the storage of content throughout its lifecycle. This can be on-premise or cloud object storage, SAN and NAS – including disk, SSD, optical and data tape, as well as storage management, archive storage, video servers and VTRs. With an ever-growing amount of content needing to be stored and then rapidly accessed from anywhere, with ever-higher resolutions only increasing the pressure, Store today means much more than the simple repository its name implies. We spoke to 10 IABM member companies to catch up on all the latest developments in this largely unheralded but vital content chain segment.
Many in the storage world still have a skewed view of object storage. This really isn’t a surprise given that there are three concepts that need to be defined when talking about object storage, and different storage vendors often have different definitions of those concepts. The 3 concepts are interface/protocol, object structure/system and storage media. In this blog, I am going to focus primarily on interface and protocol.
There are times when you want to store data and performance is a non-issue. You need to keep the data (e.g., to meet regulatory requirements or “just in case”), but you don’t need to retrieve it on a regular basis or rapidly. And then, there are times when you need to store data and then locate it and retrieve it quickly. And, of course, you want to make absolutely certain that your data is securely preserved.
Evaluating your existing DR strategy or developing a new one? Learn how to efficiently add cloud storage for a hybrid cloud approach. No single storage repository can guarantee that your data will never be lost, much less that it can be recovered once it is lost. Are you taking a holistic approach to your Disaster Recovery (aka DR) strategy to ensure you never lose access to your precious data and digital assets?
