Object Storage Uptake Expands As SwiftStack Launches Ver. 3.0

Object storage is, at least conceptually, the perfect answer to many of the longstanding issues with data storage, such as the excessively long rebuild times experienced with high-capacity storage devices, parity overhead, and the need for a global namespace and scalability. However, object storage is still in the beginning stages of adoption — with the exception of Amazon’s S3 services, which has a rapid growth curve and is already raking in over $1 billion per year.

The SwiftStack platform brings object storage to the enterprise while also providing a level of freedom from the perils of vendor lock-in, thus reducing cost. SwiftStack has a laser-like focus on providing simplicity at scale, which is increasingly important to reduce cost and provide businesses with the agility to respond quickly to rapidly changing needs.
