Storage Switzerland: A Better Answer than Raid and Replication for Cloud Storage
sponsored by Cleversafe
Cloud applications and web-based services must expand almost without limit, they also need to protect and secure data sets, typically for thousands or millions of users. And, they must accomplish this while aggressively containing costs so as to stay viable in hyper-competitive environments.
Unfortunately, the scale of storage expansion required by the cloud may be rendering traditional RAID and replication storage infrastructures obsolete.
This brief white paper details object storage systems with erasure coding and data dispersion, and how this new technology can eliminate RAID’s inefficiency and provide the economics required to make these business models feasible.
