A “ TURNKEY ” SOLUTION THAT ADAPTS TO YOUR NEEDS

Object storage is capable of adapting to any variation in data volume:
you pay only for the volume actually used, without hidden charges.
Unlike traditional storage, object storage is based on a system of objects and metadata.

Data is stored in the form of “objects” to which defined properties are applied in accordance with your needs:

REPLICATION PROFILE

Is data accessible from just one region, or replicated across many?

LIFE CYCLE

Do files have an expiry date?

VERSIONING POLICY

How many versions of a file are to be kept?

ACCESS CONTROL

Who can read, edit and delete a file?

Cegedim’s object storage service lets you maintain control over datasecurityand locationwhile enjoying the advantages of the cloud and object storage, such as scalability, accessibilityand simplicity. It also provides a solution to capacity issues by providing an unlimited, low-cost storage space. The scalabilityof the environment is transparent to end users, who communicate directly with the system through an API.
