Introduction In my previous blog post on Object Storage, I provided an overview of what Object Storage is, and how it compares to conventional storage platforms. In this post, I will discuss what benefits Object Storage can provide for you today.  As there are a variety of solutions to choose from, each offering different pros, cons and price-points, I will focus on OpenStack Swift, the open-source Object Storage component of OpenStack, as it is vendor-agnostic and freely available to everyone.

Introduction To call Object Storage an emerging technology would be inaccurate. There are already trillions of objects and hundreds (perhaps thousands) of petabytes of data in Object Storage public clouds, such as Rackspace Cloud Files and Amazon S3, in private clouds based on the OpenStack Object Storage platform Swift, and other platforms such as EMC’s Atmos.
