    Smarter storage from metadata, object stores

    One of the distinguishing features of object storage systems is their ability to package more metadata with each object they store.

This allows data management tasks to be automated via policies set by IT, thus creating smarter storage systems.

    Today, organizations face a wide array of storage challenges. Luckily, there are myriad training and certification opportunities for IT pros looking to bolster their knowledge of the storage technologies.
