Is Object Storage right for your enterprise?

Check out the latest report from Forrester Research (available at Tech Target) that describes the limitations that make the Object Storage technology the wrong choice for many organization’s storage requirements.

The report is titled “Prepare for Object Storage in the Enterprise and it defines object storage as “Storage of data that is broken into distinct segments, each containing a unique identifier that allows for retrieval and integrity verification of the data.”

From Dave Raffo at Tech Target:

The report isn’t anti-object storage. It points out object storage systems’ value in the areas of massive scalability, greater custom control over data, the ability to reduce management and hardware costs, and its WORM and shared tenancy features. It also recommends object storage for certain workloads. But it also looks at the downsides that need to be considered before adopting an object storage system.
