Complexity — one word that describes the modern IT era. No longer confined to on-premise environments, data, applications and associated infrastructure are moving to the cloud and the edge. The implications on software development and data storage are significant.
With applications increasingly being born in the cloud and housed in containers using microservices and APIs, complexity is ramping up — and storage must keep up with the enormous volumes of data consumed by these apps.
Thanks to its incredible scalability, object storage is proving to be more important — and uniquely valuable — than ever, especially when it comes to supporting new cloud-native workloads, including machine learning, artificial intelligence and big data analytics.
In this episode of 10 on Tech, Scality Chief Product Officer Paul Speciale joins ActualTech Media Partners Scott Lowe and James Green for a value-packed 10-minute discussion of the past, present and future of object storage.
Highlights of the episode include:
- The emergence of big data applications
- The shift toward cloud-native computing and its impact on storage
- How storage is evolving in the direction of DevOps
- The unique storage needs of containerized apps
- The necessity of API-driven access and provisioning for storage in the cloud
- The changing consumption patterns of storage
- What’s behind the rise of object storage in the last decade
- Looking ahead to the future of storage
- Scality’s new lightweight, cloud-native object storage solution, ARTESCA
