hgst-active-archive-systemJust a quick note to inform you about a new paper I wrote on object storage with Howard Marks.

It’s the first time I’ve worked with my friend Howard and his company DeepStorage.net… and I think we had a great time collaborating together, but evaluating the results is up to you! Here the link for the free download, please post your comments.

The paper “Object Storage as a Backup Target”, was commissioned by HGST and is divided into two sections.

In the first one I talk about object storage and make a comparison with VTL libraries. The target is the decision maker who wants to be informed about the technology and how it works for this specific use case. Mostly educative and informative, presenting a complete picture to aid in choosing the right technology.

In the second part of the report, Howard did a great job by showing the results of a series of benchmarks he ran on a live infrastructure. In this case, the content is more technical and wants to give more information to SysAdmins and Project Managers who do technical evaluations about the benefits of this type of infrastructure.

Here the link to download the paper.

Enjoy the read!
