Best Object Storage Software

Object storage software is designed to store unstructured information and object files. Object files contain data, metadata, and individual identifiers. These files are highly customizable, durable, and rich in data. Companies use object storage software to house various files such as static content, media, and data backups in the form of objects. These storage systems are less scalable than block storage software, but better facilitate operations requiring significant metadata access.

Object storage software may have similar features and support multiple storage formats. Still, it is not guaranteed to facilitate the creation of cloud file systems or storage of structured datasets or blocks.

To qualify for inclusion in the Object Storage category, a product must:

  • Store unstructured data and relevant metadata
  • Facilitate data retrieval through APIs or http/https
  • Be offered by cloud service providers
