HP Cloud Object Storage: A Brief Overview

In the world of cloud solutions, there are few who can compete with the robust and agile HP Cloud Object Storage

HP’s cloud solutions continue to expand, and more and more organizations are taking advantage of these opportunities. In the cloud storage arena, HP Cloud Object Storage provides highly durable, readily available access to your data. It’s secure, too; each object is stored in three zones of availability, all separate from one another. HP Cloud Object Storage runs on world-class HP servers, of course, giving you scalability and access on demand.

Here are some things you need to know about HP Cloud Object Storage:

  • High performance. This service runs entirely on high-end HP servers. This gives you the highest possible levels of availability and performance.
  • Scalability. Creating containers and adding objects in order to adjust to growing storage needs is instantaneous, and you only pay for what you use.
  • Security. The three availability zones for HP Cloud Object Storage are physically separate, and have redundant power and redundant Internet connections, all of which are monitored 24/7.
  • Public containers. HP Cloud Object Storage allows for the option of creating a public container that can be access externally by any user. By default, the containers are of course private.
  • Object size. Natively, HP Cloud Object Storage can hold objects anywhere from a singly byte all the way up to 5 GB. Larger objects can be segmented into pieces of 5 GB or smaller at the time of upload, and they will automatically reassemble into the larger file when you access or download it.
  • Security. HP Cloud Object Storage relies on REST-based authentication for clients. You can choose between a private key or a token that’s time based in order to secure your data in HP’s public cloud.

  • Management. HP has long been known for its capable and intuitive management consoles, and HP Cloud Object is no different. From the console you have increased visibility into how your storage is being used. You can manage containers easily and remove or add objects as the need arises.

In the world of cloud solutions, there are few who can compete with the robust and agile HP Cloud Object Storage.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.

Building the Future of Monitoring with Artificial Intelligence Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like "How is my application doing" but no idea how to get a proper answer.
Today, we have more data to manage than ever. We also have better algorithms that help us access our data faster. Cloud is the driving force behind many of the data warehouse advancements we have enjoyed in recent years. But what are the best practices for storing data in the cloud for machine learning and data science applications?
