October 24th – Gigaom recently published a new study (available here) about ExaScale data center storage and how object storage solutions, at least some of them, could address challenges introduced by that scale. 4 solutions were selected by Gigaom analyst to sustain and illustrate the study: 2 vendors with Cleversafe, the pioneer of Object Storage, and Scality, the alternative fast growth player with some similar characteristics and 2 open source solutions represented by Open Stack Swift and Inktank Ceph.
