Object storage is a cloud computing storage method for unstructured data. It stores and manages objects as a basic unit. For example, object storage can provide massive, reliable and secure storage services for Internet applications. For example, unstructured data such as pictures, audio and video can be stored in object storage. It can be used as data source and result set storage for big data analysis. Big data analysis needs to process massive data, and object storage can easily expand to hundreds or thousands of servers to provide high-performance data access. It can be used to back up and restore enterprise data, providing a highly reliable and low-cost solution. User data can be backed up in multiple geographical locations to ensure that data will not be lost due to natural disasters, hardware failures or human errors.
