096  – How Scality Helps Drive Cloud-Native Development with Object Storage

If there’s one word that describes the modern IT era, that word is “complexity.” Applications, data, and its associated infrastructure has broken through its on-premises boundaries and moved to the cloud and the edge.

This has massive implications for things like software development and storage. Apps are increasingly born in the cloud and housed in containers, using microservices and APIs. This ramps up complexity in a big way.

These apps are consuming huge amounts of data, and the storage needs to keep up. Since object storage is incredibly scalable, it’s more important than ever.

And making sure that object storage is fast and efficient enough to be used by these apps is the core of what Scality does. In this episode of “10 on Tech,” Scality Chief Product Officer Paul Speciale joins ActualTech Media Partners Scott Lowe and James Green to talk about the past, present, and future of object storage.

If you’re using containers and Kubernetes in production, or are considering a move into cloud-native development in the near future, this is an episode you don’t want to miss.

Highlights of the show include:

  • The emergence of “big data” applications
  • The shift toward cloud native computing and how it impacts storage
  • How storage is evolving in the direction of DevOps
  • The unique storage needs of containerized apps
  • The necessity of API-driven access and provisioning for storage in the cloud
  • The changing consumption patterns of storage
  • What’s behind the rise of object storage in the last decade
  • Looking ahead to the future of storage
  • Scality’s new object storage offering
