Tips on how to to build a successful object storage service with a minimal initial investment, and how to keep costs aligned with business growth.
Object stores are slow? The time of high performance object storage is coming.
We built a small object storage cluster out of legacy hardware, using OpenIO, to create a zero-waste storage solution.
EVENT RECAP | Four days with the world’s leading vendors of storage technologies in Santa Clara, at the Storage Developers Conference 2018.
The most important thing about backups is being able to recover data. How does OpenIO compare to other backup targets?
General rules and tips to configure nodes for cold archiving, general purpose object storage, high throughput / media streaming.
OpenIO supports several data protection schemes, and it has a "dynamic data protection" feature to automatically select the best type of protection for each object, according to its characteristics and user-defined policies. One of these protection mechanisms is Erasure Coding.
Software-Defined Resiliency and Performance Make it Possible to Take Advantage of Heterogeneous Hardware
We often mention that you can run OpenIO on heterogeneous hardware, but what does this really mean?
OpenIO is very easy to install and configure. It just takes 20 minutes, no matter the size of the cluster. See the whole installation process
I'm here again writing one more pseudo-technical tutorial. I'm having a lot of fun working with my home lab and rediscovering my rusty sysadmin skills (from the nineties).
A step-by-step guide to set-up a "private cloudish" backup solution.
