Traditional storage arrays can be expensive in scale-out scenarios and often require over-provisioning storage to support multiple copies of the same data. Backing up to a tape can be attractive due to low cost, however the data sitting offline in a remote warehouse is at risk of deterioration and cannot be easily searched for legal hold and discovery purposes. With Openstack Swift - the foundation for Swiftstack, we can support high-volume content repositories for web & mobile applications, on-premise or hybrid clouds and massive amounts of data including video, life sciences and research data.
