Object-Based Storage Market Competitor Analysis

The object-based storage market is a fairly competitive market and consists of several players, with a few of the major players, currently, dominate the market. Many companies are working on this technology due to the numerous advantages it provides over the other storage options. Some of the recent developments include:

  • April 2019: Google launched a new archival cold storage service at its Cloud Next conference. The new object storage service will complement the company’s existing Nearline and Coldline services for storing infrequently used data at an affordable low cost. Google’s new object storage service reportedly uses the same APIs as it's other storage classes and enables users to redundantly store data across availability zones, with eleven 9’s of annual durability.
  • November 2019 - Scality added an Azure Blob API connector to give Microsoft Azure Stack Hub and Edge customers the option to scale out using its on-premises Ring object storage. Target deployments for Azure Stack with Scality storage include ocean-based oil and gas rigs or remote military bases that have limited connectivity to push data to the public and government agencies or companies in regulated industries that need to keep data on premises.
