HPE Empowers OEMs to Accelerate the Benefits of Object Storage

Modern IT professionals are well aware of the aptly termed “Data Explosion” and shutter at the prospects of managing the rapidly expanding storage volumes that go with it.  For many use cases, object storage is increasingly becoming relevant to more OEMs as they look to scale out on their premise and hybrid storage solutions to address this growth. 

Object storage is well-suited for managing unstructured data such as media files, medical images, documents, and emails that may not be accessed frequently but need to be available on demand with low latency. This active archiving architecture is cloud friendly and enables on-premise and hybrid solutions with the same characteristics offered by the large, monolithic public cloud providers we all know. It is designed to scale out to huge volume in cost effective architecture. Cloud design for object storage is very much suited for wide interoperability and ease of use.

It is the economics of scale and advances in technology that are increasingly making object storage a good fit for OEMs in many verticals like healthcare, security and surveillance, media distribution, IoT, and shared file storage.  With active archives at around 500TB the value of object storage starts to surpass other alternatives, and when scaling go up to a PetaByte and higher, provides excellent value.  This scale is increasingly relevant as well as cost-effective to OEMs. When considering a move to object storage, there are some basic questions to ask.  It also supports long-term data integrity, advanced search, security and other features, plus direct access to applications and the internet. The HPE Big Data Server Storage Ecosystem combines key software-defined storage partners with HPE test and validation experience and HPE Apollo Systems and ProLiant servers to enable customers to get the maximum value from their data with proven, tested and complete solutions.
