What is Object Based Storage?
In object storage based environments, data is stored as objects instead of files in file systems or blocks in block level (SAN) storage environments. Each object includes data, metadata and an unique identifier. Object storage offers protocols such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) and OpenStack Swift.
Environments designed to run in the cloud usually rely on S3/Swift and offer scalability that is hard to get in conventional file and block level storage solutions.
