Technology is finding use for object storage systems, such as big data circles and more specifically in vertical markets such as oil and gas, and media and entertainment. This interesting news came from Search Storage in their article, “Object storage systems in demand for big data, archiving.”

In these markets, scalability is crucial for extremely large amounts of data. They also want more than just storage; they want analytics and flexibility. Many cloud service reporters cited object storage as the best way to continue to scale their environment with a single-level platform.

Access to data that is in storage is important. It can be achieved by creating strong taxonomies. Proper indexing against a strong standards-based taxonomy increases the findability of data. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
