Problematic definitionBackgroundData StorageThe needs of electronic storage still grow as still enterprises produce more information in electronic formats which increasingly important the needs of storage space. Data storage is a term for how to keep the information in a digital format to be able to retrieve it at a later time. Computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and other devices all store data. Methods and technologies used vary greatly, but the basic concept is always the same: information is kept so that it can be used and accessed again whenever we want. Basically, there are three different methods of data storage Object, DataBase(DB) and Archive Storage. Each of these storage methods has its own requirements in terms of performance, scalability, availability and price.
Block storageBlock storage is data storage typically used in Storage-Area Network (SAN) environments where data is stored as blocks in volumes. Each block is assigned an arbitrary identifier by which it can be stored and retrieved, there is no metadata providing. Database storage is a common use for block storage. Blocks are acting individua as “hard drive” controlled by server-based Operating System(OS) and accessed by cables either RG45 which is Ethernet Protocols or Fiber Optic Channel, where are configured by the administrator.
Block storage works for storing a variety of applications. There are two common uses for block storage are File Systems(FS) and DataBases(DB) because they require consistently high performance.
Nowadays almost companies are using RAID arrays are a prime use case for block storage. RAID used multiple independent disks combined for data performance and protection. RAID get a benefits of block storage to create individually controlled storage volumes.
As will Virtual Machine(VM) file system took an advantages of block storage by used it, such as VMware vendors support block storage protocols to improve scalability and migration performance.
While there are benefits to using block storage, in the same time there are alternatives depends of organizations needs or uses. Two options stand out when it comes to facing off are: DataBase storage and object storage.
Object StorageObject Storage is data storage solution based on storing of files in a storage system where that files are accessed through an Application Programming Interface (API). Basically files systems are known by a unique identifier instead of a location on a disk.
Object storage used the same method of block storage to be accessed to the files where are located in logical disk in SAN. The main difference is that object storage used Distributed File System (DFS) method and Files are combination of Data and Metadata.
