Storage systems tend to underlay almost all IT systems. As such, uptime is critical.
Data is stored in 'Fixed-size' blocks in a rigid arrangement, ideal for enterprise databases.
Data is stored as 'Files' in hierarchically nested 'folders' - ideal for active documents.
Data is stored as 'Objects' in scalable 'buckets' - ideal for unstructured big data & analytics and archiving.
As with all our application vendors, we aim to certify and work closely with the vendors themselves.
These are the Object-based storage products that we have tested load balancing with so far.
