Gartner defines distributed file systems and object storage as software and hardware solutions that are based on “shared nothing architecture” and that support object and/or scale-out file technology to address requirements for unstructured data growth. A shared-nothing architecture is a distributed computing architecture in which there is no single point of contention across the system. Distributed file system storage uses a single parallel file system to cluster multiple storage nodes together, presenting a single namespace and a storage pool to provide high-bandwidth data access for multiple hosts in parallel. Data is distributed over multiple nodes in the cluster to deliver data availability and resilience in a self-healing manner, and to provide high throughput and scale capacity linearly. Object storage refers to devices and software that house data in structures called “objects,” and serve clients data via RESTful HTTP APIs, such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) and OpenStack Swift.
"Powerful scalable and fastest storage"
The more powerful and widely used storage solution in our environment, majorly used for blob storage like media, images..etc. most suitable for the large size storage container, Best thing i would say easy to access and it allows the user can setup the configurable options and very high throughput.

Pure's sales & support team have continued to seek feedback to add requested functionality from our very large and uniquely diverse workloads that the EDA space requires.
"Best Customer Experience/Support I've Ever Experienced in Enterprise Storage."
Qumulo has exceeded my expectations at every opportunity and I don't consider myself someone who says that lightly. What stands out to me the most with Qumulo, and continues to impresses, is their customer service. I'm talking from the coordinating of the cluster deployments, to every day issues, and I have never ONCE had to open a support case. Let me repeat that in case you missed it. In the year that we've been using Qumulo, I have never once had to call a support queue, send an email, or use some portal to make a ticket. Do you want to know what I have to do to get support? I open Slack and say "Guys I got a problem" and they literally swarm the issue. It is truly a wonderfully thing to behold after years of poor customer support.
"Secure & easy provisioning make Cohesity Smartfiles our first choice for unstructured data"
We use Cohesity NAS for a variety of our storage requirements. My team appreciates the ease of the provisioning process and I appreciate the reliability and overall financial value the system has provided us over the years. We started using it at first because it was one the only systems that we had which had available space. We quickly learned that it was easy to provision and very efficient in the way that it uses space so we continued to use the system even after we had other options.
"Highly resilient and feature rich object storage HCP "
HCP is being deployed as the target for Hitachi Data Ingestor as well as an S3 target for our backup solution. When used with Hitachi Data Ingestor, it provides high storage efficiency and is easily integrated into our current AD and DFS environment so that clients can access CIFS shares through HDI with data being stored in the backend HCP. When used as S3 target, the WORM capability of HCP allows us to secure the data and integrates well with the backup solution (Commvault).
"Excellent product and company"
Nutanix Files, as a software-defined scale-out file storage solution, is deeply integrated with Prism and Nutanix HCI architecture to provide a single management platform and is not restricted by virtualization platforms. The software-defined horizontal expansion architecture and the pay-as-you-go model meet the needs of large-scale and high-growth file storage at the optimal cost. The deployment of Nutanix Files is very simple, one-click deployment. Utilizing the native disaster recovery function of the hyper-converged architecture, under the multi-data center deployment architecture, it is very easy to realize the backup and disaster recovery of unstructured data. We have deployed Files in the headquarters and multiple branches, and easily synchronize files across data centers. Nutanix Files not only provides file services, but also provides rich file analysis functions. Administrators can use these functions to monitor and warn abnormal user behavior, or view audit records or file permission change history.
"Easy to manage software that adapts to a changing environment."
We have noticed that using NetApp Storage Grid is an excellent choice to reduce costs on primary storage. It helps us grow our data faster, provides simplicity, accurate speed and cloud integrations. It has really proved genuine by providing smart policy-driven data management to us for the past year.
"Hybrid storage service for backup and archiving, disaster recovery."
In general, this product makes it easy to store limitless amounts of data very cost-effectively with fast backup and restore particularly. I can predict the recovery time and recovery point objective using the IBM cloud storage. It calculates the amount of loss of data in time. My data disaster occurred at 4 pm, and after an hour, I set up the RPO to restore the data recovered in just a minute at 5 pm. you can safeguard, boost and save money. You can also easily manage multiple cloud account without losing visibility of the protected resources. IBM cloud storage offers a secure path to store critical data with enhanced data security and encryptions options.
"Superior performance, extensive scale-out and best suitable for Unstructured data storage"
Very flexible networking and easy configuration ,It supports most powerful architecture like a fully symmetric distributed architecture and It supports the storages either objects or file storage, excellent performance.
"Excellent Choice for Unstructured Data Storage"
Inspur AS13000 storage system can provide us with file, object, and block service in one cluster efficently and cost-effectivly, meanwhile it can provides lots of data-protection methods to ensure our data always on line along with higher reliability and availibility.
"An excellent digital storage solution and has robust features, reliable and secured"
EMC ECS provides data protection without failure, it's high scalability and gives the option to create files in additional bytes with predefined standards. Performance and storage efficiency is good. It's highly safe and reliable, serves the purpose. Every file storage has a unique number and allows to edit. ECS supports both block-based storage and file-based storage, remote access support is good.
