What is object storage?
Object storage is a flat model of storing data i.e., there is no hierarchy (directory tree) in the stored items, as is seen in other data storage methods. Each object possesses a unique metadata which is used to identify and retrieve that object. This flat model along with a highly distributed architecture makes object storage an ideal and cost-effective solution for large scale data storage.
