Why Do You Need StoneFly SCVM’s File Storage Instead of Object Storage Provided by the Cloud Provider?
Many cloud providers provide object storage. An object is a descriptive storage protocol. It is a flat structure in which the files are broken into pieces and spread out among the hardware. The data is kept in a single repository. Object storage focuses in storing a large amount of unstructured data at scale. Object storage is not as fast as file storage. If you look at legacy there are a lot of applications and databases which demand file based storage. It is a traditional concept of storage. Many organizations want to avoid CAPEX investments in on-premises storage solutions and that makes cloud-based file storage relevant for multiple use cases which would need file share over protocols such as NFS or CIFS. The files are stored and accessed from the protocol such as NFS or SMB/CIFS which is configured with the storage.
- The File level storage is easy and simple, to use and implement.
- This level of storage is inexpensive to be maintained.
- NAS (network attached storage systems) depend on the file level storage.
- File storage is efficient enough to handle the access control, integration with company directories and so on.
- Scale-Out-NAS is a type of file level storage with which you can scale a single volume across many nodes. Through this the capacity is scaled out and the performance too.

There are distinct advantages to file that cloud companies have realized they need, to win the enterprise business. There are number of use cases that demand file. Such as media & entertainment workflows which are constantly changing. Many leverage a hybrid cloud deployment and need a standardized access using network file protocol. They require flexibility, security and consistent, fast access to data from off-the-shelf, custom-built and partner solutions. Every enterprise has different requirements and StoneFly SCVM™ provides all types of storage Block, File and Object. This makes enterprises meet their storage needs.
