New Webcast: Object Storage – Understanding Architectural Trade-Offs

The Cloud Storage Initiative (CSI) is excited to announce a live Webcast as part of the upcoming BrightTalk Cloud Storage Summit on October 16th – Object Storage 201: Understanding Architectural Trade-Offs. It’s a follow-up to the SNIA Ethernet Storage Forum’s Object Storage 101: Understanding the What, How and Why behind Object Storage Technologies.

Object-based storage systems are fast becoming one of the key building blocks for a cloud storage infrastructure. They address some of the shortcomings and provide an alternative to more traditional file- and block-based storage for unstructured data.

An object storage system must accommodate growth (and yes, the rumors are true – data growth is a huge and accelerating problem), be flexible in their provisioning, provide support multiple geographies and legal frameworks, and cope with the inevitable issues of resilience, performance and availability.

Register now for this Webcast. Experts from the SNIA Cloud Storage Initiative will discuss:

  • Object Storage Architectural Considerations
  • Replication and Erasure Encoding for resilience
  • Pros and Cons of Hash Tables and Key-Value Databases
  • And more…

This is a live presentation, so please bring your questions and we’ll do our very best to answer them. We hope you’ll join us on October 16th for an unbiased, deep dive into the design considerations for object storage systems.
