The benefits of object-based storage for health care

Object-based storage cuts down on the bottleneck when a large file such as a medical image is opened. This podcast discusses how to use the concept in health care data centers.

Object-based storage stores a file's metadata, index and data as an object that is separate from the file itself. This reduces the bottleneck that can result when either a file or its metadata is opened. This can bring significant benefits to a health care setting, where files must be archived for years, if not decades, but may need to be accessed in a matter of seconds.

This podcast with Marc Staimer, president of Dragon Slayer Consulting, provides an introduction to the concept of object-based storage and how it can be implemented in health care data centers.
