– Marc Staimer, President & CDS Dragon Slayer Consulting On 17 September 2013, GigaOM released a white paper by this analyst, “How object storage tackles thorny ‘exascale’ problems”. Many readers labor under the false assumption that the thorny exascale problems are unique to those with exabytes of storage. They are not. These problems exist and are just as pernicious at the petascale (petabytes of storage capacity) and even large terascale (hundreds of terabytes) levels.  So why is this false perception so pervasive?

The Project The Earth Observation Center in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany uses remote sensing and custom analytic methodologies to tackle tough issues in environmental and climate science, mobility and planning, civil security and the prevention and management of natural catastrophes. The Photogrammetry and Image Analysis department, headed by Professor Peter Reinartz required a high performance, durable storage solution to store its satellite image data.
October 24th – Gigaom recently published a new study (available here) about ExaScale data center storage and how object storage solutions, at least some of them, could address challenges introduced by that scale. 4 solutions were selected by Gigaom analyst to sustain and illustrate the study: 2 vendors with Cleversafe, the pioneer of Object Storage, and Scality, the alternative fast growth player with some similar characteristics and 2 open source solutions represented by Open Stack Swift and Inktank Ceph.
