How Objects Storage Works

 files marketecture img

Objects Storage provides a simple and scalable S3 compatible storage tier on top of your Nutanix AOS platform. It can easily deploy on an existing cluster for small object storage use cases, on a dedicated cluster for dedicated object storage workloads with maximum performance requirements, or across multiple clusters providing a limitless single share name space while unlocking storage resources from underutilized clusters.

Objects Storage deploys as a set of virtual machines that provide access to storage resources on nodes in a single cluster or across multiple clusters for scale from the very small to the truly massive. This can easily deploy at edge and remote office locations, in your core data center and connect with storage in the cloud for a seamless data management cloud across all deployment modes.

The Smart Path to Cloud Objects Storage

Ensure compliance and data protection

Enable Write-Once Read-Many (WORM) policies on any object to ensure data fidelity and immutability for data retention and compliance. Protect everything with integrated encryption to a level of FIPS 140-2 compliance.

Support any workload from a single platform

Get S3-compatible storage for big data, cloud-native and deep archive workloads. It’s a single, flexible platform that stores file, block, VM, and many other types of workloads.

Enhance data visibility with tagging and versioning

Quickly identify objects by tagging them. Tag objects based on projects, compliance and more. Create copies of objects and protect your data from accidentally overwriting or deleting it.

Comprehensive Solution for Unstructured Data

Superior searchability

Metadata goes with the object, hence there is no need to build databases that merge the two. Create, change and add custom metadata anytime to make object storage easy to search and navigate.

Unlimited scalability

Add nodes as needed and scale horizontally. Metadata stays with the objects for near-unlimited scaling compared to traditional storage methods.

Unparalleled resiliency

Object storage ensures quick, reliable disaster recovery for object files. When disaster strikes, you can be sure your data won’t be lost because objects are automatically copied onto 1+ nodes.
