Implementing OpenStack SwiftHLM with IBM Spectrum Archive EE or IBM Spectrum Protect for Space Management
Cloud

Redpaper, published 7 Jun 2017, last updated 27 Jun 2017

The Swift High Latency Media project seeks to create a high-latency storage back end that makes it easier for users to perform bulk operations of data tiering within a Swift data ring. In today’s world, data is produced at significantly higher rates than a decade ago. The storage and data management solutions of the past can no longer keep up with the data demands of today. The policies and structures that decide and execute how that data is used, discarded, or retained determines how efficiently the data is used. The need for intelligent data management and storage is more critical now ... [more]

A Deployment Guide for IBM Spectrum Scale Unified File and Object Storage
Cloud

Redpaper, published 14 Feb 2017, last updated 24 May 2017

Because of the explosion of unstructured data that is generated by individuals and organizations, a new storage paradigm that is called object storage has been developed. Object storage stores data in a flat namespace that scales to trillions of objects. The design of object storage also simplifies how users access data, supporting new types of applications and allowing users to access data by using various methods, including mobile devices and web applications. Data distribution and management are also simplified, allowing greater collaboration across the globe. OpenStack Swift ... [more]

IBM Cloud Object Storage Concepts and Architecture: An Under-the-Hood Guide for IBM Cloud Object Storage
Software Defined Storage

Redpaper, published 22 Mar 2017, last updated 24 Mar 2017

Object storage is the primary data resource used in the cloud, and it is also increasingly used for on-premise solutions. Object storage is growing for the following reasons:
- It is designed for scale in many ways (multi-site, multi-tenant, massive amounts of data).
- It is easy to use and yet meets the growing demands of enterprises for a broad expanse of applications and workloads.
- It allows users to balance storage cost, location, and compliance control requirements across data sets and essential applications.
Due to its characteristics, object storage is ... [more]
