Frequently Asked Questions about Object Storage

What is Object Storage?

Object Storage ( or Object Oriented Storage ) is a general term that refers to a particular method of software and process used to control how units of storage, called Objects, are organized and called upon in a storage system.

The stored data can be anything from a photo album to a 3d rendering website. At the same time, the metadata informs the user whether it is a photo album or website. The data stored could also be subfiles that need to be stored but don't directly relate to any particular file in general.

Each Object contains a globally unique identifier so that it can be found over the distributed system. With this identifier, a user can access the data without ever needing to know the system's physical location. A massive amount of data can be stored in different geo-locations globally on other Object Storage Servers in this organization style.

Is Hostwinds Object Storage S3 Compatible?
