From price point to efficiency and durability, there are many good reasons to consider implementing object storage. It's important for IT pros to understand how the technology functions, why its metadata and global deduplication capabilities matter, and how its massive scalability and multi-tenancy characteristics can help you redefine your data center so it's less reliant on technologies ranging from tape to a block-and-file storage.
