Each year, the massive quantity of data generated increases dramatically, and by 2025, unstructured data will account for 80 percent of global data, according to IDC. As organizations adopt a cloud-native approach, in order to modernize their information systems or build new applications, they may face quite some challenges. These include navigating the complexities of unstructured data, storing large volumes of data while keeping costs under control, and delivering the speed demanded by applications that use this data.
This newly launched High Performance Object Storage offering by OVHcloud would provide businesses with high-performance, highly scalable storage at a competitive price. The solution can be as well suited for static data such as documents and audiovisual material. It is specifically intended for big data, artificial intelligence (AI), high performance computing (HPC), and applications that demand high throughput and low latency.
OVHcloud’s High Performance Object Storage solution can store enormous quantities of data and scale up fast to one petabyte. OVHcloud claims its price structure to be totally open to clients: €25 excl. tax per terabyte per month, €0.01 excl. tax every outbound gigabyte, with API requests and private outbound traffic included at no additional cost. According to OVHcloud, the solution is simple to use and can be accessed via the S3 API and the OVHcloud Customer Panel.
