How Does Object Storage Work?
Object storage is built for scale, adapting to the storage needs of modern computing. As such, it helps you overcome the management complexity and data hierarchy limitations of file and block storage models. It is a flat file space that stores data as objects, adding metadata and unique identifiers to describe and locate them.
An object comprises of the file, its ID, metadata, and attributes. Metadata contains file information, making it possible to search and index the object with increased performance. Attributes contain instructions for reading, writing, and deletion privileges.
Objects are stored in buckets that can scale to hold billions of similar or related objects. The stored objects are further replicated to other buckets on physically separated devices in the cloud for additional redundancy and enhanced data integrity and security.
The user interacts with the buckets via the industry-standard S3 API, working out of the box with most modern applications. The fact that the app is the storage client expands the ecosystem beyond a single OS and makes data more easily distributed across multiple platforms, and storage devices.
The data written to the Object Storage is SSL-encrypted in transit and can be further encrypted at rest. For additional resilience, you can make your data immutable with the object lock function, replicate it across multiple nodes, or segment it with erasure coding for enterprise-level availability.
Why Do You Need Object Storage?
Object Storage caters to the needs of Internet workloads such as web apps, websites, web hosting, or content delivery, making it easy to store, analyze, and extract insights from petabytes of unstructured data. With effectively limitless capacity, it is a secure storage tier for archiving volumes of growing data for compliance or regulatory purposes and a better alternative to the traditional tape storage.
The S3 API enables rapid search, easy scaling, and instant data access across hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments. This allows you to span your storage pool globally, supporting the needs of your cloud-native applications.
Other benefits of Object Storage:
Store and analyze massive amounts of data at lower costs.
Object Storage Use Cases
Media and Entertainment
Use object storage to store, retrieve, and reuse high volumes of image, graphic, video, or audio files and make them accessible to your users anywhere in the world at lightning speed. Easily scale as your digital content grows and let your team leverage metadata for fast queries and faster postproduction.
Content Distribution and File Sharing
Take the load off your servers by moving your app’s downloadable assets such as media, software, video, or audio files to Object Storage. Support collaboration between geo-distributed teams with information access and privilege regulation, noting each modification in the metadata.
Big Data Analytics
Store and access massive datasets and let your ML or AI apps take full advantage of unmatched Object Storage scalability, robust APIs, and rich metadata. Collect global IoT data efficiently and cost-effectively in a single data pool, extracting value from it or using it to train your machine learning platform.
Sensitive Data Archiving
Object Storage is ideal for businesses that require reliable elastic storage to ensure compliance with long-term data retention policies and maintain low costs of these operations. Protect your medical scan records, video surveillance data, or other sensitive write-once-read-many assets.
Store backups of all kinds of immutable data safely securely and use Object Storage as a perfect way of achieving the 3-2-1 backup rule or implementing an affordable DR solution. Automated data replication lets you restore assets quickly, keeping your business operational in case a disaster strikes.

Enable Immutability to Tamperproof your Backups!
Leverage phoenixNAP’s Veeam-compatible S3 cloud object storage to create a virtual air-gap and bulletproof your critical backup data against ever-growing ransomware threats.
Backups are essential for ensuring business continuity, which makes them increasingly attractive ransomware targets. Cybercriminals today rely on encrypting and deleting backup data first to cripple organizations’ ability to recover. This way they make the ransom payment their only choice.
The new Object Lock data immutability feature, available in Veeam Backup & Replication V10 and above, enables companies to prohibit any changes on the stored data for a specified amount of time. Backups are protected against accidental and malicious modifications to ensure their availability in case of a disaster.
Even if cybercriminals manage to gain access to your backups, they won’t be able to delete or modify them as the Object Lock feature would keep them protected in an immutable state.
Flexible and Predictable Pricing
Manage your storage and outgoing bandwidth usage from an intuitive control panel interface and pay only for the resources you use.
