Complete Unstructured Data Solution Required by Enterprises

According to IDC's "Rethink Data" report, only 32% of the data generated by enterprises in operation are utilized. Unstructured data contain a great deal of information, and unstructured data account for 80% of the data generated by enterprises, which is increasing rapidly at a compound annual rate of 60%. The management of massive unstructured data and tapping into their value has become a problem that plagues enterprises during their data management.
Unstructured data are organized in the form of files and objects. The method with files adopts a hierarchical architecture, which is more in line with human logic. Files can be frequently edited and modified for file sharing, video editing, high-performance analysis, etc. The method with objects adopts a flat structure, which is more machine-friendly. Objects are seldom modified and suitable for cloud native application, cloud resource pool, content release, etc. However, the scenarios where files and objects are used are not fixed. Most applications based on file storage can apply to object storage mode after being appropriately transformed. In addition, under scenarios of backup, archiving and big data analysis, either file storage mode or object storage mode can be adopted. Therefore, enterprises also possess cross-protocol capability for data flow to manage unstructured data uniformly and arrange resources reasonably.
