In this video, DDN Senior Product Manager Kurt Kuckein discusses the importance and value of incorporating WOS object storage into an archive strategy.
New data protection and multi-site connectivity options lower archive and disk backup costs
DDN’s newly released WOS data protection offering, Extended ObjectAssure™, expands customer choice of protection methods, resulting in the industry’s widest variety of data-protection options. WOS’s extremely low overhead expenses make the cost of object storage competitive with tape storage alternatives. It also enables faster rebuild times that lower the risk of data loss during a rebuild and eliminate or limit performance impacts from drive failures.
DDN’s expanded S3 multi-site capabilities bolster collaboration, disaster recovery and content distribution for customers with multi-site data sharing needs and provide fast, error-free data transfers. With DDN’s S3 interface, customers have a faster, cost-effective, secure and reliable alternative to public clouds.
“WOS is to be considered as a high-end solution. It is aligned with the rest of DDN’s products in terms of positioning (HPC and big data applications), performance, and scalability. The level of integration with other storage systems in the product line-up is remarkable and the architecture is very well designed.”

The Technology Behind The World’s Leading Data-Driven Organizations
WOS enables customers to build the perfect storage platform for any data type or size. The platform can be tuned to support any application that needs to store and access large volumes of unstructured data. Policies can be set per object, so one single WOS infrastructure can be used to support several applications. For example, it is perfectly possible to use WOS for a combined sync & share, DR and archiving solution – or to build a scale-out web application that will be generating billions of small files, but also needs to provide high throughput to stream high-resolution movies.
