|Re: [PLUG] West tomorrow - Object Storage 101|
In the spirit of Objectoberfest and because we don’t have an announcement, or the website updated – but I’ll be doing a talk on Object Storage tomorrow.
“Object storage (also known as object-based storage) is a computer data storage architecture that manages data as objects, as opposed to other storage architectures like file systems which manage data as a file hierarchy and block storage which manages data as blocks within sectors and tracks.”
Object storage typically runs on top of Linux and allows you to avoid vendor lock in.
