  6. 6. What Is Unstructured Data? • Data outside of a database • Traditionally created by users (office applications) • Now created by machines and devices
  7. 7. Polling Question A. Less Than 100 TB B. 100 TB – 500 TB C. 500 TB - 1 PB D. 1 PB - 5 PB E. More Than 5 PBs How Much Capacity Will Your Unstructured Data Need By This Time Next Year?
  8. 8. Polling Question How Much Capacity Will Your Unstructured Data Need By This Time Next Year?
  9. 9. The Unstructured Data Challenges • Growth in capacity requirements • Growth in number of items (files, objects) • The RATE of growth in storage capacity and item count • Traditional, mobile, and cloud applications accessing the same data
  10. 10. The Impact Of Unstructured Data • Legacy NAS Devices can’t scale to meet demand • Modern NAS Devices may scale but are expensive • Cost and Performance of either becomes an issue
  11. 11. Object Storage Is... • An alternative to Traditional File Systems • Ideal for Unstructured Data • Data is identified by a Unique ID instead of a folder structure • Very popular in the “cloud”, Enterprises are interested
  12. 12. The Forms Of Object Storage • Software Only • Integrated System
  13. 13. 10. Performance Challenge can be solved (Avere, Panzura, etc…) 9. Scale capacity almost infinitely 8. Scale file/object count almost infinitely 7. More cost effective to deploy (use your own hardware) 6. More cost effective to manage (one system not dozens) 5. More cost effective to operate (power/cooling advantages) 4. More cost effective to maintain (redundant parts & easily replaced) 3. Easier to verify data integrity 2. Integrates cloud for application enablement or deep archive 1. Continuous refreshing architecture, ends NAS refresh cycle 10 Reasons Why Object Storage Will Replace NAS In The Enterprise
