Conquering Unstructured Data: Scale-out NAS vs. Object Storage
For the past 25 years, NAS file servers have traditionally stored and handled the onslaught of unstructured data. But as global public cloud services exploded, a new type of storage was required, hence the industry's invention of object storage.
