For organizations of all sizes, object storage can offer the key to increasing productivity in the age of remote work. Object storage also allows organizations to break free from proprietary and expensive storage platforms. Other benefits include:
Object storage's flat architecture allows you to scale without suffering from the same limitations as other storage architectures. Object storage can scale to exabytes of data by adding new devices.
Object storage does not contain folders or directories, eliminating much of the complexity of hierarchical systems. Because there are no complex trees or partitions, retrieving files is easier.
Object metadata can be found and navigated without needing a separate application. Additionally, it has a greater degree of flexibility and customization. An object can be tagged with attributes and information, such as consumption, cost, and policies for automated deletion, retention, and tiering.
