Why Object Storage?

Object Storage is a searchable data storage architecture that manages data as objects, as opposed to file systems or block storage architectures. With Object Storage you can preserve, protect and analyze your unstructured data at web-scale.

eStruxture offers a multipurpose distributed object-based storage system based on Hitachi Content Platform, designed to support large-scale repositories of unstructured data. It enables users to store, share, sync, protect, preserve, analyze and retrieve unstructured content with a single storage platform.

Unlike traditional block storage systems, eStruxture Object Storage is better priced, more efficient, easier to use and capable of handling much more data.

For customers that need massive data storage scalability and for whom accessibility, durability and lower cost are high priorities, eStruxture Object Storage provides secure, resilient, cost-effective and redundant storage for any data type your applications produce or manage.
