Object storage works well for long-term backup and archiving. See how high-performance capabilities are expanding it to high-scale, high-capacity workloads

"One of the most interesting aspects of object storage is its diversity of uses. While object storage is often used as an archive storage area, a destination for old data and a replacement for production file servers, in reality there are many ways it can be applied. As vendors begin to deliver performance-optimized object storage, the technology is ready for a whole new set of workloads.

High-performance object storage requires more than just switching from hard disk-based object storage systems to all-flash object storage. The move to all-flash media certainly helps, but object storage systems -- thanks largely to their rich metadata -- typically have too much latency to effectively take advantage of flash performance..."
