Object Storage, An Effective Solution for Managing Complex Data in Multicloud Environments

Published on 14 June 2023

Object Storage, Solusi Efektif Pengelolaan Data Kompleks di Lingkungan Multicloud

In recent years, the amount of data generated by organizations and individuals has increased significantly. Data includes various formats such as files, images, videos, documents, structured data, and other unstructured data. In the face of surging data volumes and the need to manage data more efficiently, object storage has emerged as an effective storage solution. 

Object storage has high storage scalability capabilities, making it easier for organizations to adapt to significant data growth without reducing system performance. 

Curious about object storage? See the complete explanation in the following article. 

What is Object Storage?

Object storage is a storage method that stores data as separate objects, then groups them in a single container or bucket. Each object has a unique identity that can be accessed via a URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) address. 

In an object storage system, each object is stored along with metadata that describes the object. This metadata can contain information such as the object’s name, creation date, data type, size, and other attributes useful for managing and identifying the object. 

One of the main features of object storage is high horizontal scalability. This means the system can more easily accommodate increasing data volumes without reducing performance. This is achieved by distributing data across multiple servers or “nodes” within a sprawling storage infrastructure, enabling parallel access and efficient management of data. 

How Object Storage Works? 

Object storage actually works in a very simple way. When you store data in object storage, the data will be broken down into small blocks called objects. Each object has a unique identifier or address used to access it. Apart from that, each object is also equipped with metadata which contains information about the contents of the object, such as name, size, files, and other attributes. 

The process of accessing data in object storage uses a RESTful API (Application Programming Interface). This API allows you to interact with object storage such as modifying or deleting objects. By using APIs, you can access data from anywhere, at any time, and with various devices, if they are connected to the internet. 

What if you want to implement this solution? So, one solution that companies often use is cloud object storage. This solution is the same as object storage but provides flexibility in storing and managing data in the cloud. You can increase or decrease storage capacity as needed without needing to pay attention to physical infrastructure.   

Why Should Companies Use Cloud Object Storage? 

Cloud Object Storage Untuk Pengelolaan Data Perusahaan Yang Efisien

 

Traditional file storage, such as folder hierarchy-based systems, can experience problems in managing very large and diverse data. In addition, block storage, which is usually used to store data at the disk sector level, also has limitations in terms of scalability and flexibility. 

Therefore, cloud object storage offers a different approach by storing data as independent objects. These objects have associated metadata, allowing for more efficient search and indexation. This approach enables high scalability, elasticity in adding storage capacity, and the ability to better manage data. 

Apart from that, cloud object storage is also related to the development of cloud computing technology, which allows flexible access and management of data from anywhere via an internet connection. The combination of secure object storage, high scalability, and integration capabilities with other cloud services makes COS a superior choice for meeting modern data storage needs. 

So, if you need comprehensive cloud object storage and have full control over your data storage, Hitachi Content Platform could be the right choice to provide solutions for data management and analysis in cloud computing. 

Hitachi Content Platform

Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) is an object storage platform developed by Hitachi Vantara, a technology company that provides cloud-based data management and analysis solutions.

As an object storage platform, HCP uses a different approach than traditional storage systems that use file and block hierarchies. In HCP, data is stored in the form of self-contained objects that have unique identities and associated metadata. These objects can be files, images, videos, documents, or other types of data. 

One of the main advantages of HCP is its scalability. The platform can be easily expanded horizontally by adding more storage nodes to the HCP cluster. Thus, storage capacity and performance can be increased according to organizational needs. HCP also supports data replication across multiple locations, enabling redundancy and rapid disaster recovery. 

Data security is also a main focus of HCP. This platform provides data-at-rest encryption, thereby protecting data from unauthorized access. HCP also features role-based access controls, identity management, and strict auditing to ensure that data is only accessible to authorized parties. 

Hitachi Content Platform Features and Benefits

Hitachi Content Platform provides a reliable, scalable, and secure object storage solution, suitable for organizations with large data storage needs, high compliance demands, advanced analytics, and collaboration. Additionally, here are some of the key features and benefits of the Hitachi Content Platform. 

1. Scalability

Designed to meet high scalability requirements, it’s easier to add storage capacity as your data grows without disrupting operations. 

2. Data Protection

Provides strong data protection through data replication and disaster recovery features. Your data is geographically distributed across multiple physical locations to ensure high availability and reliability. 

3. Compliance and Governance

4. Data Mobility

Simplifies data mobility through integration with various applications and other storage systems. You can quickly transfer data between HCP and other systems, and seamlessly migrate data to public or private clouds. 

5. Intelligent Search and Analytics

Provides intelligent search capabilities to find and access data efficiently. You can search by metadata, tags, or object content for better data identification and analysis. 

6. Collaboration and Sharing

Facilitates team collaboration by providing secure sharing features. You can share data with team members or business partners with proper access controls. 

7. Cost Efficiency

You can manage inactive data by moving it to cheaper storage tiers, thereby reducing overall storage costs.
