EMC Atmos 2.1 Accelerates Cloud Value

Object storage is certainly a hot topic, and it's rising above it's old data retention "jail" perception. And for good reasons. We think due to cloud storage building and adoption, increasingly mobile users and distributed apps, the benefits of active archiving and retaining ever bigger data sets that having a solid object storage strategy becomes significantly important going into 2013. EMC is aiming to be a key part of that object strategy - today releasing Atmos 2.1 making wider adoption not only possible, but more profitable for both in-house cloud builders and service providers.

The Object Evolution: EMC Object-based storage for active archiving and application development

Cloud-based object architecture offers big benefits for storing unstructured data for active archiving, global access to data, fast application development and much lower cost compared to the high computing and data protection costs of on-premise NAS. EMC has engineered Atmos to provide these capabilities and many more as a massively scalable, distributed cloud-based system. In this Technology in Brief we will examine the fast-changing world of archiving and development on the web, and how object-based storage is the best way to go for these monumental tasks.

Ten questions to help compare cloud storage services

So you've decided to pursue public cloud storage for a particular data set and use case. If you're a developer building a Web-enabled application, then you'll likely be interested in a cloud object store such as Amazon S3 or OpenStack Object Storage.

Are You Making Money With Your Object Storage?

Object storage has long been pigeon-holed as a necessary overhead expense for long-term archive storage, a data purgatory one step before tape or deletion. In our experience, we have seen many IT shops view object storage more as something exotic they have to implement to meet government regulations rather than as a competitive strategic asset that can help their businesses make money.


Normally when companies invest in high-end IT assets like enterprise-class storage, they hope to re-coup those investments in big ways like accelerating the performance of market competitive applica-tions or efficiently consolidating data centers. Maybe they are even starting to analyze big data to find better ways to run the business. There are far more opportunities to be sure, but these kinds of “money-making” initiatives have been mainly associated with “file” and “block” types of storage – the primary storage commonly used to power databases, host office productivity applications, and build pools of shared resources for virtualization projects. But that’s about to change. If you’ve intentionally dismissed or just over-looked object storage it is time to take deeper look. Today’s object storage provides brilliant capabilities for enhancing productivity, creating global platforms and developing new revenue streams.


Object storage has been evolving from its historical second tier data dumping ground into a value-building primary storage platform for content and collaboration. And the latest high performance cloud storage solutions could transform the whole nature of enterprise data storage. To really exploit this new generation of object storage, it is important to understand not only what it is and how it has evolved, but to start thinking about how to harness its emerging capabilities in building net new business.
